Pioneers top Pirates in title game

Jason Bradford and the Glen Lake girls were on hand at the Breslin Center on Saturday as No. 5 Detroit Edison outlasted No. 6 Pewamo-Westphalia in the Class C title game, 46-44.

“We thought we could hang with them,” Bradford said of the Pioneers.

Edison, which led 41-30 through three quarters, withstood a late Pewamo comeback to secure the victory.

Emily Spitzley’s jumper with 1:19 cut Edison’s lead to 45-44, but the Pirates would not score again.

Rickea Jackson paced the Pioneers offensively with 21 points while Shaulana Wagner added 12. Pewamo, meanwhile, leaned on the Spitzley sisters: Hannah Spitzley poured in 17 points; Emily Spitzley had 15.
