GROSSE POINTE WOODS, MI (December 18, 2018) – Freshman Anna Fernandez had 21 points and made five threes to lead Plymouth Christian Academy to a 44-25 road victory over Grosse Pointe University Liggett.
The Eagles never trailed in the game that saw PCA shoot 34% from downtown.
In the new indoor sports facility at Liggett, PCA ran out to a 17-5 lead after the first quarter and never looked back. The Eagles were solid in transition – from grabbing the rebound in the defensive end to pushing the ball up court, PCA had a number of easy lay-ins.
All nine players contributed tonight as the bench gave another solid effort and played valuable minutes in the first half.
PCA’s defense was stellar in the second quarter as they led at the half, 23-7. Liggett improved their offensive play in the third quarter and was only outscored, 8-6 as PCA led 31-13 after three.
Throughout the game, the Purple and Gold limited the Knights to poor shots and controlled the boards. Ella Godin led the way with 12 boards and Ariela Boboc had nine. PCA had two other glass cleaners in Eva Warmbier with five rebounds and Rachel Costello with three.
PCA edged ULS, 13-12 in the fourth quarter to earn the 44-25 win.
