Winamac girls fall at Rochester, 49-43

ROCHESTER — Winamac’s girls basketball team dropped to 4-2 on the season with a 49-43 loss at Rochester Saturday night.

Ali Larkin scored 17 points and Stephanie Shorter had 15 to lead the Warriors. Michaela Ingram added six and Bethany Brogdon chipped in two.

The Warriors were outscored 13-6 at the foul line for the contest.

“Fouls were the story of the game,” Winamac coach Jeff Wagner said. “Rochester shot 13 for 29 and we were 6 for 9. If we keep starters on the floor we possibly have a different outcome, it just really disrupted our flow with key players constantly in foul trouble.”

The Warriors led 27-25 at halftime before the Zebras outscored them 24-16 in the second half.

“We had five players with baskets in the first half and of our seven field goals in the second half, we only had three scorers — two girls with a basket apiece and Stephanie Shorter had five,” Wagner said.

Alexa Holland led the Zebras with 23 points. Keaton Stesiak had 12 and Becky Malchow and Breanne Paulik added six apiece.

Winamac hosts West Central on Tuesday.
