The Rochester girls basketball team led at half but couldn’t quite hold on Tuesday, falling to Shelton 37-36 in a 2A EvCo game.
The Warriors were up 19-16 after two quarters of play, but Shelton slowed things down to get within a point in the third quarter, and got the rest in the fourth.
“I’m really proud of the girls and how hard they played the game and how composed they were,” Rochester coach Davina Serdahl said. “We had a few things not go our way, but we stayed true and fought through them.”
Delany Winter paced Rochester with 13 points. Roisin Stull and Grace Hoover both had seven, with the latter adding 11 rebounds, Sara Haury had five points, seven steals, and four assists.
Rochester will get back to work Thursday, at W.F. West.
