Deficit too much for Port

The Port Washington High School girls’ basketball team had to get its shovels out on Nov. 26.

Dig as they did, the hole was too much to overcome in a 60-36 loss to North Shore Conference foe Hartford.

“They got out to a big lead but we did battle back pretty well by the end of the first half,” coach Jakob Wahl said.

The Pirates had the deficit cut to seven points with three minutes to play in the first half and had a chance to get within five but missed a layup.

The Pirates were down, 34-22, at the break and the Orioles pulled away in the second half.

Junior point guard Tiana Davis led the Pirates with 12 points.

“Tiana Davis has been pretty solid for us these first couple of games. She’s our primary ball handler,” Wahl said.

Sophomore Kayla Johnson had eight points despite getting in foul trouble.

“She’s a big part of our team. When she’s out there, we play better,” Wahl said.

Senior guard Keelie Schumacher added six points.

Wahl credited junior forward Abby Fritsch for contributing solid defensive play.

The Pirates, 0-1 in the NSC and 1-2 overall, were to host West Bend East on Tuesday, Slinger on Friday and play at Nicolet on Tuesday, Dec. 10.
