GIRLS BASKETBALL

Perryville 64, Lesterville 61

The Pirates held on to advance at the North County tournament.

Perryville enjoyed a 12-point lead entering the fourth quarter so coach Vicki Lohmann gave some of her bench players some quality minutes. But Lesterville cut the lead to 10 points with about three minutes left, so the Pirates starters reentered.

It got so close that Lesterville got off a potential game-tying 3-pointer at the buzzer that hit the rim but bounced away.

Abbie Schilli scored 13 points and snared eight rebounds, while Natalie Bauwens grabbed a team-high nine rebounds for Perryville (4-4).

Natalie Gremaud paced the Pirates with 17 points.
