Bath's JV came to town on Thursday night and quickly jumped out with the lead and never looked back enroute to a 34-43 OE loss. A 10-17 1st quarter in favor of Bath was slowed to just allowing 10 points in the 2nd quarter to OE's 7, leaving OE down 16-27 at the half.
"Bath's press caught us off guard a little bit, we got caught out of position a few too many times, and we struggled to rebound overall," Coach Belill stated post game. It was a slow 3rd quarter that helped put the final nail in the coffin for the Lady Marauders, though, as the Bees poured on 11 more. Belill added, "We had a lot of positive things that we did, but we need to work on correcting the recurring mistakes." OE ended up outscoring Bath 12-5 in the final stanza.
On a brighter note, El Carman almost single-handedly kept the Marauders in the game, leading with a team high 21 pts (7-7 FT's), 2 steals and 2 rebs. Aubrey Kurka added 4 pts and 6 rebs, while Hailie McCreery, Mikayla Bashore (4 rebs), Haylee Palus (2 steals), and Tava Kvalevog all added 2 pts, while Trinity Ziola rounded out the scoring with 1 point from the charity stripe.
The loss moves the JV Lady Marauders to 0-2 on the season. Action picks back up on Tuesday, December 7 as the Quakers of Lansing Eastern come to town. Tipoff is scheduled for 5:30 PM.
