The Galesburg Silver Streaks suffered a 54-50 loss to the Maine South Hawks in the first game of two today. There was good effort from the Streaks to make a big comeback after trailing by 14 points in the second half to cut it to as close as 52-50 with less than a couple of minutes left, but had to foul and Maine South hit a few free-throws down the stretch. Our Dave’s Autobody Crunch-Time Player of the Game was Chloe McCarthy who led the way for the Streaks with 15 points and going 4/4 on free-throws while Soph. Riley Jenkins added 13 points with two 3-pointers, two field goals, and completing 3/5 from the free throw line. Chloe was also involved in a really big defensive play down the stretch to cause a turnover against Maine South which added points in narrowing the Hawks lead. Overall the Streaks shot really well from the line making 15/18, but free-throws weren’t enough and the Streaks drop the first game of the day to the Maine South Hawks 54-50.
