PLUM CITY - Plum City's boys and girls basketball teams both lost Saturday at home. The girls fell 52-43 to Eau Claire Immanuel Lutheran in non-conference action while the boys were beaten 62-28 by Elk Mound to wrap-up the regular season.
PC took an early 4-0 lead but the Lancers got back before the end of the first quarter. Every time the Blue Devils would get close, whether it was 16-15 in the first half, 25-19 at halftime, 37-32 just before the fourth quarter, ECIL would simply go on a run to force the Blue Devils to play catch-up. Immanuel went on a 8-2 run right after halftime and a 10-0 to start the fourth quarter.
Freshman Cheyanne Catura led Plum City, 8-10 overall, in scoring with 14 points. She was the only PC player in double figures as Sarah Gilles was next with eight points. Catura provided a spark for the Blue Devils on offense as she helped engineer an 11-4 run before the end of the third quarter by scoring eight points while guard Shelby Kannel hit a three-pointer. Immanuel, 17-3 overall, did an effective job collapsing around the Devils' two top scores, Marah Boyer and Heather Von Holtum, defensively. ECIL's Abbie Hein led all scorers with 20 points.
In the boys' contest Elk Mound put the finishing touches on a perfect 22-0 regular season with win over the Blue Devils in a several times over rescheduled contest. Logan Strom led the No. 4 ranked Mounders with 14 points. Nash Gilles had eight points to lead PC, which finished with a 1-19 record, 1-15 in the Dunn-St. Croix Conference. Plum City plays at Marshfield Columbus in the first round of the WIAA Division 5 regional tournament Tuesday.
