GR Union 39 Fremont 35
Coach Zerlaut: “The Packers fell behind early in this one, trailing 10-0 before they scored on a Paige Vandenberg free throw. Calla Miller then hit a three before the end of the quarter to make it 12-4 after one. The second quarter was all Fremont, outscoring Union 11-0, to set the score at 15-12 at the half, with Fremont in the lead. Union hit three triples in the third quarter to outscore the Packers 17-11, and took a three point lead into the fourth quarter. The Packers didn't back down, but turnovers and missed shots in the paint prevented them from getting closer than 37-35 in the final minute of the game.”
Paige Vandenberg finished the game with 18 points and 8 rebounds for the Packers, while Natalie Jamieson had 7 rebounds and 4 steals. Chloe Shriver also added 4 steals. The loss drops the Packers overall record to 8-4. They remain undefeated in conference play at 7-0, and host Reed City on Friday.
