Daily Herald report

Senior guard Taylor Feltner came up a with career-high 18 points along with 6 rebounds and 5 steals to help Antioch's girls basketball team past North Chicago 54-43 in comeback fashion.

The host Sequoits faced a double-digit deficit early and scored just 5 points in the second quarter, but a 22-point third quarter turned the tide for Antioch (5-11, 2-4) in Northern Lake County Conference play.

Rachel Phillips hit her first 5 shots in the third quarter and finished with a game-best 14 rebounds along with 14 points for her first double-double of the season.

Other key contributors for the Sequoits included senior guard Olivia Ori (9 points, 7 rebounds, 3 assists) and junior guard Piper Foote (6 points, 3 assists, 6 steals) in what coach Tim Borries called "a true team win."

North Chicago remains winless in the NLCC at 0-6.

Grant 59, Wauconda 43: Host Grant stopped Wauconda's season-best four-game winning streak by generating big scoring edges in both the first and fourth quarter in Northern Lake County Conference play.

Mallory Harrity had a team-best 14 points for Grant (12-4, 6-1), and Brooke Karpinske and Ally Mahinay had 12 apiece.

"We were not ready to play and spotted them 10 points in the first minute and a half," said Wauconda coach Jaime Dennis. "That is a rough start, and tough to recover from against a team that shot 46 percent from the floor."

Allie Tylka led all scorers with 15 points for Wauconda (9-7, 3-3). She came awfully close to a triple-double, finishing with 9 rebounds, 9 assists along with 2 steals and 2 blocks, and Po Kimbell had 11 points.

Maine West 71, Vernon Hills 17: The host Warriors bounced back with a vengeance from their first loss of the year with a big Central Suburban North win in a matchup of division co-leaders.

Rachel Kent (16 points), Alisa Fallon (12) and Catherine Johnson (10) led the scoring for Maine West (18-1, 5-0), which suffered its first setback of the season on Saturday against defending state champion Geneva.

Vernon Hills (11-6, 4-1) was paced by 5 points from Kayla Caudle. The Cougars gave up 20 points before scoring.

"Unfortunately we did not match their intensity and their physicality," said Vernon Hills coach Paul Brettner. "They killed us in transition and dominated us on the boards. They have a tremendous team and are well-coached. Hopefully we can give them a better game the next time we play them."
