The Turkey Valley girls basketball team (8-5, 7-2 UIC) survived every punch Postville (4-5, 4-2 UIC) threw Monday night, winning 38-32 in Postville.

"The girls found a way to win. It definitely wasn't our best game, but we will take it," said Co-Coaches Carla Nymeyer and Dan Stepan.

Turkey Valley took an early 10-8 lead after the first quarter. Moving to the second frame, the Trojans allowed just five points, going up 18-13 at the half. The Trojans extended their lead to nine in the third, going up 31-22. That was when Postville made a move, cutting the lead to one possession. However, the Trojans didn't panic and pulled away with the win.
