Williamston Hands OE Second Loss

Game Date
Feb 1, 2024

In a nip and tuck game that saw 15 lead changes, it would be the Williamston Hornets (10-4) who would come out on top, 44-34, over Ovid-Elsie (11-2).

The Hornets led 12-8 after the first quarter but the Lady Marauders would use a 10-7 second quarter run to close the gap to 19-18 at half.  After a 9-7 OE advantage in the third, Williamston would close the game out with an 18-7 fourth-quarter run.

"We made some costly defensive errors about mid-way through the fourth quarter and they capitalized on them," said Head Coach Ryan Cunningham.  "They hit back-to-back three-pointers and we turned the ball over three times in that stretch.  It was too much to overcome against a solid team like Williamston."

Braeden Tokar paced the Lady Marauders with 10 points and added 3 rebounds while Evalyn Cole scored 8 points, grabbed 6 rebounds, and handed out 3 assists.  Hailee Campbell also scored 8 points while nabbing 4 boards.  Francesca Giacobbe added 3 points while Ava Bates (7 rebounds, 3 steals) and Ellyanna Carman (3 rebounds) each scored two points, and Dannika Campbell a free throw to round out the Marauder scoring.

"I think a game like this shows that we are capable of playing with anyone," added Cunningham.  "But we also need to take a hard look in the mirror at ourselves and hold ourselves accountable for the mistakes that we made."

Ovid-Elsie out-rebounded Williamston 28-19 and handed out 7 assists on 15 made baskets.  The Marauders turned the ball over 12 times compared to 13 for Williamston but came away with only 3 steals.  Williamston held a huge advantage at the free throw line going 7 of 10 compared to OE's 3 for 6 and knocked down 7 triples compared to just one for Ovid-Elsie.

The Lady Marauders will be back in action next Tuesday night at Stockbridge for another big non-conference matchup before playing host to Byron on Friday night, which will also be senior night.
