The young Marauders got caught looking past the Cougars in the early going on Friday night, trailing by as many as 7 in the first frame. Defensive miscues and a lack of communication, combined with a well-coached and hungry Greenfield Central squad led to an ugly first four minutes.
Jayvion Jackson and Drew Bucksot provided the Marauders a much-needed spark off of the bench late in the first and ensured that momentum swung to the Marauders’ favor, resulting in a 10 point halftime lead.
The Cougars made a couple runs in the 2nd half, but the depth of the Frosh Marauders proved too much in the end, earning the Marauders their 8th consecutive victory. With the win, the 9th graders are now 8-1 on the season and 4-0 in the HHC.
The Marauders will face some big challenges next week, with three very solid, non-conference opponents.
