LIZTON — North Montgomery’s girls basketball team lost the turnover battle which cost them the game in a 53-39 Sagamore Conference loss Tuesday.
The Chargers, who fall to 5-5 on the season and 1-1 in the conference, gave the ball up 25 times, mostly to a tenanious Bruins front court press.
Tri-West scored 32 points off those turnovers, and sealed the win, moving to 5-3 overall and 4-0 in the Sagamore.
The Bruins were 14-of-18 from the line for the game, and 18-of-53 from the field while the Chargers were 13-of-41 from the field and 11-of-18 from the line.
North was led in scoring by Becca Adams, who dropped in 15 points and finished her double-double with a dozen rebounds. Caroline McClaskey was also in double figures with 12 points. The junior was 8-of-11 from the line. Taylor Dyson and Kathryn Sabens each had seven rebounds.
The Chargers also got a little charge in the fourth quarter from sophomores Kendall Humphries and Katlynn McClerkin, who came in to score eight of the teams’ 17 fourth-quarter points.
The Bruins, who complete a sweep of Montgomery County teams with the win, are back in action Friday when they travel to Frankfort Friday.
The Chargers next action is Thursday when they play host to Rockville. They travel to West Lafayette next Tuesday.
