With the Chargers stretching their lead to 24 points at the 4:24 mark, the Busco girls fought back trimming the lead as they fell 65-46 to the Chargers. 

With the advantage in the low post the Lady Chargers shut down Churubusco’s leading scorer, Taylor Amber to just four points on the night. The Lady Eagles had some good looks at the bucket too, but the shots just weren’t falling as they finished 16-67 for the night. 

Wormcastle led in scoring with 11 points followed by Alysa Holloway with nine and Young with eight. Amber led the Eagles with 11 rebounds and Young added eight as they out-rebounded the Chargers 46-32.
