A 51-35 win over Baker ended a needed break and kicked off a busy season for the Port Allen Lady Pelicans.
The victory came at the right time for the Lady Pelicans (6-10), who seek to gain momentum before the start of district action.
In action against the Lady Buffaloes, Jordyn Mitchell propelled PAHS with 19 points and 13 rebounds, while Chelsea White tallied 13 points.
“We’ve played some tough teams thus far and it’s helping us get ready for a district season that we’re hoping will lead us to the playoffs,” she said.
PAHS awaits a challenge Friday from neighboring rival and former district foe Brusly (7-10).
“We’re always up for a cross-parish rivalry, and it should be a very good game because we’re very evenly matched,” Cox said. “Everyone is injury-free, and the break helped out a lot with that.”
