Five seniors finished their high school basketball careers

for Chatfield this past Tuesday, in a 65-49 loss at the hands of

Plainview-Elgin-Millville. Four of the five playing in their last

game, scored; Jake Peterson (13), Tyler Grover (2), Josh Bernard (9)

and Tyler Lund (7). The other senior, Mitch Narveson, will remember

the game for the 'shot' he took to his mouth, forcing him to leave

the game.

Peterson was the leading scorer for Chatfield, hitting six of

10 field goals. He added four rebounds and two steals. Bernard hit

3/5 from the field and 2/2 from the line for his nine points. Lund

had a bucket and was 5/5 at the charity stripe. Grove was 2/2 from

the free throw line.

Also figuring into the scoring were sophomores Jake Neis (9),

Nate Skare (4) and Jayme LaPlante (4) and juniors Adam Amy (2) and

Mitch Irish (6).

"We needed to play our best and we needed them to not play

well," said Coach Tom Bance. "Neither of those things happened," he

continued. "I thought we battled hard, but their athleticism was too

much for us," he added.

I had Chatfield for 25 turnovers in the game and 12 for the Bulldogs.

Chatfield trailed by 12 at halftime, 38-26. PEM really

turned it on in the second half, moving ahead of the Gophers by 26

points with 11:24 left in the game.

Chatfield finished the season with a 9-16 record, 8-12 in the

Three Rivers Conference.
