PBL eighth-grade girls basketball loses 50-23 to Prairie Central

FORREST -- The Paxton-Buckley-Loda eighth-grade girls basketball team lost 50-23 on Monday, Nov. 5, to Prairie Central.
Losa Suaava led the Panthers with 15 points while Emily Robidoux had five points, Trixie Johnson ahd two points and Brooke Kleinert had one point.
"We really struggled on both ends of the court," PBL eighth-grade coach Lynn Rubarts said. "We came out playing very hard the first quarter and were only down 13-8, and then in the second quarter, we got into some foul trouble and just couldn't put the ball in the hole and were outscored 18-3.   
"That is a very big hole to climb out of in junior high basketball.  We made some adjustments at half time and again, we had some open shots, they just didn't fall for us. Good news is we have two days of practice before we play Hoopeston to get plenty of shots up and to work on our defense."
