Lady Marauders Fall Short in Quarter Finals to Blissfield, 45-41

Game Date
Mar 14, 2023
Score
MARAUDERS: 41
TBA: 45

In an intense, hard-fought, back-and-forth game, the Lady Marauders came up short against Blissfield Tuesday night, 45-41.  Blissfield (26-1) will advance to the Breslin Center to take on Bishop Foley.  Ovid-Elsie finishes with a 22-5 record.

Ovid-Elsie jumped out to a 15-10 first-quarter lead and led 24-22 at the break but Blissfield would hit a buzzer-beating 3-pointer to end the third quarter and tie things up 35-35.  A 10-6 fourth quarter sealed the deal for the Royals and closed the door on Ovid-Elsie's historic run.

"We played a great game," said Head Coach Ryan Cunningham.  "We have nothing to hang our heads about.  This loss will sting for a while but eventually, we'll be able to look back at all we accomplished.  I am proud of these kids and hope our school and community are proud of them too.  We came up a little short, but these kids deserve a ton of credit and respect."

The Lady Marauders out-rebounded the Lady Royals 21-19 and shot 50% from the field compared to Blissfield's 41.5%  Ovid-Elsie had one more turnover than Blissfield (17-16) and made 18 baskets to their 17.  The biggest difference came at the foul line where Blissfield went 10 of 15 while Ovid-Elsie shot just 2 for 3.

"It'll sound like sour grapes, but the foul situation was odd," said Cunningham.  "On two different occasions, they awarded us free throws and then reversed their calls and took us off the free throw line.  15 to 3 from the line is a big discrepancy when we only committed two more fouls than they did on the night."

Braeden Tokar had a team-high 12 points to go along with 5 rebounds, 4 steals, and 2 assists while Ava Bates added 11 points, 3 rebounds, 3 assists, and 2 steals.  Evalyn Cole chipped in with 10 points, going 5 for 5 from the field, and added 3 rebounds, and 4 assists.  Kiah Longoria (3 rebounds) and Hailee Campbell (5 rebounds, 2 steals) each scored four points for the Lady Marauders.
