LONE TREE — The Pekin girls basketball team came up a little short Tuesday, losing a nail-biter to Lone Tree, 58-56.

“It was the same old story,” coach Davis Eidahl said. “We started slow, we got behind  big, but in the second half we chipped away and took the lead with one minute to go. We had a chance with three seconds to go, but the shot was missed.”  

Panther McKenna Gambell had a tremendous game, leading Pekin with 16 points on 8-of-12 shooting and grabbing a team high 11 rebounds. Pekin’s Cheyann Lankford added 14 points and led the Panthers with four steals. Leslie Stone added eight points.

Lone Tree’s Madelyn Flemr led all scorers with 17 points.

“We did have several positives come from the game,” Eidahl said. “Our girls never gave up.”

Pekin (1-2) plays Wapello Thursday.
