PLYMOUTH â€” Plymouth had a great first half, but LaPorte had a better second as they were able to come from behind to beat the Lady Pilgrims by a 65-45 final.
While Plymouth played the upset card in the first half, the Lady Slicers showed why they are unbeaten and considered one of the stateâ€™s elite teams in the second, striking from 3-point distance with deadly accuracy and running the floor with authority to put up 30 third quarter points.
