Girls basketball: Fulton rallies in tournament

PEARL CITY, Ill. — Fulton clamped down on defense in the second half and rallied to defeat Orangeville 45-42 in girls basketball Monday at the Pearl City Holiday Tournament.

“We were down 28-20 at halftime, played a great second half defensively and only allowed five points in the fourth (quarter),” Fulton coach Mike Menchaca said.

Averi Leitzen made four 3-point basketbs and led the Steamers with 16 points. She also had four steals and three assists. Betsy Leonard added a double-double of 10 points and 13 rebounds, and Kerrigan Enloe chipped in with seven points and nine rebounds.

“A great team effort defensively, as we allowed only 14 points in the second half, and we knocked down our free throws late, going 14-for-19 from the line,” Menchaca said.

The Steamers return to action in the tournament Wednesday night, with a 6:30 game against host Pearl City.
