On Tuesday, the Pearl River Central Lady Blue Devils basketball team lost on the road to the Long Beach Bearcats, 36-19. After losing two on the road, the Lady Blue Devils now stand 1-2 in district play.
“Defensively we played really well but we struggled to score the ball,” said Head Coach Cliff Bauer. Tuesday night was a physical matchup and the Lady Blue Devils only trailed 12-11 at the half.
