YORKVILLE — On Friday night the undefeated Rochelle Township High School varsity girls’ basketball team took a quick lead over Yorkville, but was eventually reeled in as the Lady Hubs dropped its first game of the season, falling 54-46.

“We never really got settled in and played our game,” Rochelle head coach Kay Dobbs said, “and the turnovers killed us.”

Despite turning the ball over 14 times in the first half, Rochelle was able to maintain a lead that the Lady Hubs extended to 23-18 before the final seconds ran out of the second quarter.

MacKenzie Bollinger, the Lady Foxes biggest offensive threat, came out after halftime and put up big numbers to get Yorkville back in the game. With 3:50 left in the third quarter, Bollinger knocked one down from behind the arc to put Yorkville within three, the closest the Lady Foxes had been since Rochelle took the lead in the first quarter.
