Meigs Lady Marauders Snap Losing Streak< < Back to
Meigs girls’ basketball got back on the winning track as they defeated the Belpre Golden Eagles at home 55-46. The Marauders battled all game and ended their three game losing streak as they move to 6-4 overall on the season.
Meigs coach Jarrod Kasun was happy to return to the other side of the scoreboard.
“It’s good to get back in the winning ways,” said Coach Kasun. “A win is a win and we’ll take one when we can get it.”
When the Marauders were able to break the press, the scoring of Kassidy Betzing, Marissa Noble and Devin Humphries carried the team. Betzing with 18 points ran the offense while Noble added 15 points with shots from beyond the three point line and Humphries was able to contribute with 9 points. 42 of their 55 from these three girls were the story of the game for Meigs.
For the Eagles, the play of Trinidy King kept Belpre close the entire game. 11 total points does not do justice of her impact in the game. Her three point shot was respected as the Meigs defense was guarding her close everywhere she went. Outside shooting from Kaitlin Richards, three of three from three point range, was also a key component to Belpre competing in this game. Meigs offense was challenged tonight when the Eagles played full court defense also. When the Marauders were not able to break it, the Eagles flew to the ball and forced multiple turnovers. When it came to the end of the game, late fouling from the Golden Eagles led to made free throws for Meigs Marauders as they were able to pull away.
Meigs travels to challenge the TVC Ohio first place Alexander Lady Spartans Thursday, Jan. 12. Coach Kasun had some words for the upcoming game.
“Alexander is the cream of the crop in our league this year. We need to come out, we need to be ready to go.”
