Marion buries Argylls in second half

FAIRMOUNT — After a competitive first half, the Madison-Grant girls basketball team was buried in the second by Marion’s full-court pressure.

The end result was a 65-30 victory for the Giants in the season opener for both squads.

The Argylls trailed just 24-22 at intermission despite 15 turnovers in the first 16 minutes. The home team used superior size and seven points from senior Bethani Herniak. The second half was a completely different story.

In the third quarter the Argylls struggled just to get the ball past half court and Marion turned the defense into instant offense. The Giants scored the first 10 points of the third period over three minutes as the Argylls turned the ball over eight times before coach Chaz Barker called a timeout to regroup.

It turned out not to matter. Marion also scored the next 10 points for a 44-22 advantage. In the final minutes of the third quarter, Madison-Grant sophomore Mallorie Havens finally broke through with a free throw and a field goal but the home team trailed 46-25 with eight minutes to play.

The fourth quarter was nearly as bad, with the Giants winning that period 19-5.

Even taking into account that the game was the first of the season for the home team, it was hard to find many positive stats for the team.

The Argylls finished with 34 turnovers. They hit exactly a third of their 39 field goal attempts and less than 20 percent of their free throws (2-of-11).

Herniak and Havens tied for the team lead in scoring with seven points apiece. Nobody else scored more than four.

Marion had 10 players score and three of them were in double figures. Dejah Cyrus and Julia Cardwell each scored 13 points and Vironnica Drake put in 10. Cardwell was the most efficient on the team, hitting all but one of his six shots. As a team the Giants hit 29-of-51 shots.

Marion also used quickness and anticipation to rule the boards 35-29. Cyrus and Cardwell grabbed six rebounds apiece, but it was Madison-Grant’s Herniak who domined both ends on the glass with 11 rebounds.

The Argylls are off until a game at Tipton on Nov. 23.
