Gulls 44, Indians 33
SOUTH BEND — A defensive rivalry game broke out between Raymond and South Bend, with the visitors mustering enough offense to claim this Pacific League matchup on Friday night.

“It wasn’t a great night for us, but it was an even worse night for them,” Raymond head coach Jon Schray said. “They played good defense and slowed us down. It was a good game. It came down to which team would make more shots. We grounded it out and I’m happy with the way the girls responded.”
“We were extremely cold to start with,” South Bend head coach Gary Wilson said. “This is our third game in four days and it really showed. We had a hard time getting things going.”
