Plainview-Elgin-Millville. Four of the five playing in their last
game, scored; Jake Peterson (13), Tyler Grover (2), Josh Bernard (9)

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