Ladycats play defensively in win against Marion

The Wild Rose Ladycats finished their regular season home basketball games on Feb. 17 with a 30-22 win over the Marion Lady Mustangs.

“It was another outstanding defensive effort by our girls tonight,” said Head Coach Bruce Williams. “I was very happy with our attention to rebounding the basketball tonight, and keeping them from getting second chance points. While we didn’t score a lot of points, we took care of the basketball well, and got some good looks at the basket. I continue to be happy with the way we play team basketball and unselfishness on the court. We will see this same Marion team in the first round of our playoffs here at home. So, we’ll have to be prepared for another physical battle.”

Wild Rose had the upper hand in the first quarter of play as three players got on the board. Bre Marchan put up 5 points, with 3 coming on a long shot. Ashley Mendoza added 4 points as the hosts ended the period with the advantage.
