Pats remain perfect, Jeeps suffer road loss

From Herald Staff Reports

Two area girls basketball teams hit the road in search of victories on Tuesday evening — one reached its goal narrowly while the other struggled to come away with its first win of the season.

Here’s a brief rundown of Tuesday night’s girls basketball action.


Patriots 38, Huskies 35: The Heritage Hills girls basketball team improved to a perfect 4-0 with a road victory over Evansville North on Tuesday evening.

The Patriots trailed 27-26 heading into the final quarter but used a 12-8 advantage in the fourth to push through and keep their record unblemished.

Freshman Hadley Lytton led Heritage Hills with 15 points while sophomores Avery Neff (11) and Rebekah Gordon (nine) were also heavy contributors on the offensive end.

Spartans 54, Jeeps 31: The Northeast Dubois girls basketball team fell to 0-7 on the young season with a road Blue Chip conference loss to South Knox.

The Jeeps will have a chance to bounce back on Thursday as they travel to Orleans. The game will be Northeast Dubois’ seventh straight game away from home. No individual scores were reported from this game.
