Lady Pirates fall to Trojans

Greensburg — The Greensburg girls basketball team hosted first-place East Central Tuesday, falling to the Trojans 49-34.

East Central jumped out to a 13-5 lead after the first quarter. Following its slow offensive start, the Lady Pirates went into the halftime trailing 27-15.

Greensburg, though, came out of the half and put up its highest scoring output of the night, edging the Trojans 14-13 in the third quarter. Despite struggling offensively, Greensburg held the visitors to nine fourth-quarter points and their second-lowest scoring total of the season. The Pirates had lost to East Central by 38 points in the first meeting.

Freshman Taylor McIntosh led Greensburg with a career-high 11 points, including seven in the third-quarter run. Sophomore Jessica Banaschak followed with nine, also scoring seven in the third period. Senior Clare Owens hit two second-quarter 3-pointers for six points. Senior Heidi Dance scored four, while senior Shelby Ward and freshman Keauna Schultz each added two.

Greensburg (5-6 overall, 2-3 in the EIAC) next hosts South Dearborn tonight in a game that was postponed earlier in the season. The Trojans are 9-1 overall and 6-0 in the EIAC.
