Warrior girls drop game to Council Grove

A competitive game took a fourth-quarter turn in Council Grove’s favor Friday as the Marion girls’ basketball team lost to the Braves, 46-26.

The game was within reach through three quarters, as Marion enjoyed a 6-3 lead after one quarter, but trailed, 18-13 at halftime. Marion nearly matched the Braves’ third-quarter production and faced a 27-21 deficit heading into the final period.

But the Braves, however, outscored the Warriors, 19-5, in the fourth quarter to solidify their win.

“We competed quite well for three quarters,” coach Kelly Robson said. “Things got away from us in the fourth, but I think we’re still making progress.”

Corrina Crabb led the Warrior scoring effort with 11 points.

As a team, the Warriors made nearly 35 percent of their attempts from the field (9-for-26).

Coming—Marion (0-4, 2-12) was scheduled to resume Heart of America league play by hosting Sedgwick (1-0, 9-3) Tuesday. The Warriors will travel to Sterling (2-0, 9-4) Friday.
