Lady Marauders Move to 19-2, Down Genesee Christian 62-31

Game Date
Feb 27, 2024

The Ovid-Elsie Lady Marauders traveled to Genesee Christian Tuesday night for a non-conference match-up with the Soldiers.  Ovid-Elsie would come away with a 62-31 win to improve to 19-2.  Genesee Christian fell to 11-9.

Senior Ava Bates had a team-high 16 points to pace OE and added 3 rebounds and 3 steals.  Fellow seniors Evalyn Cole (7 assists, 6 steals) and Hailee Campbell (4 rebounds, 5 assists, 4 steals) scored 13 points and 12 points, respectively, and Braeden Tokar finished with 7 points, 5 rebounds, and 6 assists.

"It was a small, hot gym with a big, loud crowd," said Head Coach Ryan Cunningham.  "It had a very tournament-like atmosphere which is what we need going into districts next week."

Ovid-Elsie built a small first-quarter lead of 14-9 and added to it in the second quarter 10-8 to lead 24-17 at the half.  But it was the third quarter (16-4) that made the difference while the Lady Marauders closed the game out with a 22-10 fourth quarter.

"We struggled defensively in the first half," said Cunningham.  "They have a lot of movement in their offense and it kept us on our toes.  We made a few mistakes but we were able to talk things through at halftime and make some good adjustments.  The 7-0 run we had coming out of the locker room certainly helped."

Ellyanna Carman scored 5 points and grabbed 4 steals while Lily Bates scored 4 points, Tava Kvalevog added 3 points, and McKenzie Keck two points to round out the scoring for Ovid-Elsie.

Ovid-Elsie shot 50% from the floor on the night including 9 of 19 from behind the arc (47.4%).  The Soldiers held a slight rebounding advantage 21-16 but the Lady Marauders were able to collect 19 steals on 32 GCS turnovers.  Ovid-Elsie also handed out 21 assists on 25 made baskets.

Thursday's finale against Napoleon has been canceled due to some injuries in the Napoleon program.  Ovid-Elsie is looking to pick up a game, but if not the next action will be in districts next Wednesday night at Ithaca against the winner of the New Lothrop-Ithaca winner.
