Game Recap

Fresh off the the HHC tournament championship, the 8th grade Mt. Vernon Marauders mosied into Middletown for a meeting with the Shenandoah Raiders. MV got off to slow start, but was able to end the first quarter with a two-point lead, 10-8. Credit to the host team, as the Raiders out-hustled the Marauders, grinding for every rebound & loose ball. In the second quarter, Drew Walker catapulted a couple of 3 bombs, holding the Raiders at bay, to take an 18-14 MV lead into the half.

The Raiders came out of the half fired up, but the Marauders were still able to hold them off with Connor Cox & Aden Cappalletti 3’s, then a Camren Sullivan circus shot to add to the lead of 26-24 going into the fourth quarter. Shenandoah made it interesting by taking a 27-26 lead, but Kiryn Dahl’s BIG bucket gave MV the lead back, then the Raiders were forced to foul. Late free throws by Cam Lusby & Ben Moss sealed the deal, as the Marauders escaped from Middletown with a 30-27 victory.

The Marauders were led in scoring by Connor Cox with 7 points, Drew Walker & Kiryn Dahl had 6 points a piece.
