The 59ers cut the lead to 8 and had multiple opportunities to cut further into the lead but could not convert. Karli Miller led the 59ers with 13 points. Natalie Figlio added 16 rebounds. She is now averaging 17 rebounds per game. The Lady 59ers will travel to Crown Point to take on the Bulldogs on Tuesday.
