WEST CHESTER — Despite a big game by freshman Alison Lewis, Unionville’s girls basketball team could not hold off a second half charge by West Chester Rustin, losing a tough 49-41 decision in Ches-Mont American Division play Tuedsay night.
The Indians (5-4) had a 20-17 at halftime but could not hold off the Golden Knights in the third quarter.
The Unionville girls dominated the game in the first half (although the score did not show it) and let it slip away in the third quarter — in part because of foul trouble. The Indians went to the foul line four times as compared to the home teams 19 shots from the line. The Indians trailed 46-41 with just over a minute left and had to resort to fouls in an attempt to close the gap.
Lewis, a 5-9 freshman, scored a UHS career high 16 points in the defeat as Cami Redfern nailed three three-pointers to help cut the lead down to 5.
