The Pella Christian girls came into Grinnel with a 3 and 1 record Friday night, and left with a win going into the holiday break. The Lady Eagles improved to 4 and 1 on the young season, despite a less-than-pretty 39-31 win against the Tigers.
Pella Christian started the game on an 11-0 run, but the Tigers quickly bounced back, and made it hard for the Eagles to get into a rhythm.
In the end, Pella Christian’s post game, and pressure defense proved to be too much for Grinnell. Jasmin Schelhaas led the way with 11 points, Paige Zylstra added 8 and four players had 5 each.
The Lady Eagles improve to 4 and 1 on the year, and 2 and 0 in conference play. They start the holiday break before resuming play against South Tama on January 4th.
