Meigs Girls Struggle Throughout The Week As The Boys Are Still Seeking First Win< < Back to
This week brought nothing but losses to the Meigs Marauders. The boys have yet to win a game so far this season, keeping their record at 0-9, while the Lady Marauders have a record of 4-4.
On Monday, December 18th the Lady Marauders went out to Alexander High School in hopes of earning a record of 5-2, but instead the Lady Spartans took control of the game and came out on top 65-41.
The Spartans dominated the second quarter, making it hard for Meigs to catch up in the second half. Although the game was not in favor of the Lady Marauders, Coach Jarrod Kasun said it was a “group effort,” but that they still have things to work on.
“We need to get back in the gym…We need to get stronger and work on our communication…We were silent on the court,” Kasun acknowledged.
Maddy Fields led their team with 10 total points for the game, and Kassidy Betzing followed closely with 9 total points. After a rough loss, the girls prepared to play a tough game against Vinton County on Thursday, December 21st.
Thursday, the Lady Marauders were leading the Lady Vikings 30-19 in the first half and outscored them in the third quarter 23-10, but in the fourth quarter the game went back and forth. The Lady Vikings shot 39 free throws, while Meigs shot 12 total.
Unfortunately for the Marauders, the fourth quarter is what cost the game.
“We played better, just had a bad 8 minutes.” Kasun claimed.
Becca Pullins led her team with 22 total points, while Kassidy Betzing followed with 11 points. The girls also made a total of 14 three-point field goals, but in the end it just was not enough, losing the game by 10, 66-56.
On Tuesday, December 19th, the Meigs boys went up against the Vinton County Vikings, and struggled to keep up, ending the game with another loss 55-39, while on Friday night, the Marauders faced challenges against the Wellston Golden Rockets that costed them the game 67-56.
The Meigs Marauders had high expectations going into the season, wanting to make it out of sectionals and compete for TVC-Ohio title, however the boys have been inefficient this season and are not on the right path to achieving their ultimate goal.
Last season the boys held a record of 9-3 within their conference and 14-9 overall. However, with not one win so far this season, it is not going to be easy for the Marauders to make a huge comeback.
With the hope to win their first game, the boys will play at River City from December 29th-30th and the Lady Marauders will go on to play in their Holiday Showcase on Saturday, December 23rd at 7:30pm.
