PINCONNING — Pinconning's girls’ basketball team had John Glenn on the ropes Friday, but the Bobcats roared back in the second half to take a 59-44 North East Michigan Conference victory over the Spartans.

Glenn exploded for a 22-4 third quarter run behind a 16 points in the period by Lauren Bluhm to take control after Pinny took a 26-21 halftime lead.

The Spartans got eight points from Lauren Pilot and seven from Jessica Vidalez in the first half, and Pinny outscored the Bobcats 12-6 in the second quarter to spark thoughts of an upset.

Bluhm paced Glenn (4-2, 1-0 NEMC) with 24 points, with Stephanie LaBelle contributing 10.

Vidalez led the Spartans (1-5, 0-2) with 17 points, with Pilot adding 10.
