Plymouth tips Tigers 31-29
PLYMOUTH — It took Plymouth leading returning scorer Amber Redinger about three quarters to get going.
When she started to find a groove, it helped push the Lady Pilgrims over the top.
Redinger scored six of her 10 points in the fourth quarter, including the game-winning bucket from the low post on an entry pass from Marissa German at the buzzer to clinch Plymouth a 31-29 season-opening win over visiting Peru in a nip-tuck game Thursday at The Rock.
“You can be 1-0 or 0-1, and I just told them in the locker room it should be easier to come to work tomorrow night being 1-0,” said Plymouth Head Girls Basketball Coach Dave Cox, entering his 20th year at the helm for the Lady Pilgrims. “I’m sure it is, but, my goodness, there’s a huge amount of work to do. It wasn’t what we wanted to do in the game, but I thought the last 16 and a half seconds we played pretty well.”
