Turnovers doomed the Delavan-Darien girls basketball team in a Southern Lakes Conference clash with Westosha Central on Tuesday.

The Falcons built a seven-point halftime lead and held on for a 46-41 victory.

“We have five sophomores that are playing regularly,” said Delavan-Darien head coach Marty Speth. “Some games the inexperience shows up a little larger than other games. If we can cut our turnovers down, we will be in good shape.”

The Comets were led by sophomore Jaida Speth, who tallied 15 points.

The Falcons’ Meghan McNealy had a game-high 19 points for the Falcons.
