Cole Nets 30, OE Downs Chesaning 67-47

Game Date
Dec 19, 2023

Throw records out the door, when it comes to Ovid-Elsie and Chesaning it is still a rivalry game.  However, senior Evalyn Cole refused to let the Indians enter the Marauder gymnasium to try and hand the Lady Marauders their first loss.  The Lady Marauders would come out on top, 67-47.

Cole scored 19 points in the first half en route to a 30-point night, including 5 rebounds and 9 steals in just 24 minutes of action.  Ava Bates also hit double digits with 12 points, 4 rebounds, and 3 assists while Braeden Tokar (4 assists) and Ellyanna Carman (3 rebounds, 3 steals) each chipped in with 7 points each.  Hailee Campbell (3 assists, 3 steals) added 5 points while Dannika Campbell added 3 points, Francesca Giacobbe added a pair of free throws and Alyson Moore also added a free throw to round out the Marauder scoring.

"I thought Evalyn put on one of the best performances any player has put on at OE in a long time.  She brought a great deal of energy and intensity to the game when we needed to pick things up," added Cunningham.

Ovid-Elsie led 16-6 after the first quarter but saw their lead dwindle to 8 at halftime after a 14-16 quarter that favored Chesaning.  After an 18-9 third-quarter edge, the Lady Marauders would push the lead to as many as 24 points before capturing the 4th stanza 19-16.

"Defensively, we didn't have our best effort tonight and that's on me as a coach.  I need to do a better job of getting us ready for a rivalry game like this," said Head Coach Ryan Cunningham.  "We know we have a target on our backs and every night we are going to get everyone's best shot.  So give Chesaning credit for bringing the fight to us, but also give my kids some credit for fighting back."

Ovid-Elsie collected 29 steals on 41 Indian turnovers but was out-rebounded 35-21.  The Lady Marauders also handed out 13 assists on 24 made baskets and connected on 17 of 25 tries from the free-throw line.

Ovid-Elsie (6-0, 4-0 MMAC) will head into the break for some much-needed rest before returning to action on January 5th at home against Durand.  Chesaning falls to 1-4 on the season and 0-3 in the conference.
