PREP BOYS

HOAL

Moundridge 67, Marion 51

MOUNDRIDGE — The Moundridge Wildcat boys downed Marion 67-51 Friday in HOAL play in Moundridge.

The Wildcats used a 25-point second quarter to lead 40-29 at the half.

Moundridge outscored the Warriors 17-1 from the free throw line.

“We had numerous opportunities to put these guys away with double digit leads but allowed them several runs that kept things interesting,” Moundridge coach Vance Unrau said. “In the first half we allowed them to get open looks and offensive stick backs because we didn't make it a priority to defend and rebound. A huge part of what I told the kids was going to be crucial coming back off of an extended layoff and what we emphasized in our week of practice. I was pleased with how we shared the ball tonight. Give Marion a lot of credit. They played hard and crashed the boards and knocked down shots when they were open.”

Logan Churchill led Moundridge with 27 points. Landon Kaufman scored 26.

Seth Lanning led 0-5 Marion with 14 points. Brandon Mercer scored 10.

Moundridge is 3-4 and plays Tuesday at Bennington.
