SEVASTOPOL — The second-half surge was enough for the Peshtigo girls basketball team to secure a win on Thursday.

Holding a two-point lead to start the second half, the Bulldogs converted enough of their free throws to increase the lead over Sevastopol and finish with a 50-38 win on the road. Lianna Baxter had a game-high 25 points to lead Peshtigo.

Peshtigo finished the game 18-for-36 at the free throw line, with many of the conversions coming from Baxter. She sank five of her 11 tries in the first half then went 8-for-10 in the second half. The Pioneers had little recourse, other than their 3-point efforts.

Sevastopol’s Amber Roalkvan had a team-high 19 points with 12 coming from 3-point range. She was the lone Pioneer with more than one basket in either half and the only to make any of her 3-point tries. The rest of the team was 0-for-6 from behind the arc.

Grace Wickman added eight points for Peshtigo; Sidney Gullicksen had six. The Bulldogs host Southern Door on Tuesday.
