JUNCTION CITY, Ore.– It took a while for the Huskies to warm-up after making the road trip down to Junction City to play the Tigers Friday night as they led 25-22 at the halftime break thanks in part to turnovers during the opening 16 minutes of the game.
But, coming out of halftime, a three-point lead quickly exploded for a 50-32 end of the game result as the Lady Huskies improve to 10-1 on the season and won their ninth-straight game of the season.
“We had too many sloppy turnovers and shots weren’t falling for us,” said Trevor Bodine. “JC is very well coached and came out with nothing to lose and were hitting everything they put up it seemed. We tightened the screws after half and held them to four points in the 3rd and six points in the 4th.”
Speaking of the fourth quarter, Hannah Kinniburgh scored 10 of her 19 points in the frame. Ally Umbenhower, to go along with her 10 points, and Kinniburgh helped North Marion keep out in front during the first half as they fixed their adjustments during the intermission.
Mar Verastegui got the pace going in the thrid with seven of her eight points coming in the frame as the Huskies will play host to Molalla Tuesday.
GUYS RESULT- North Marion wins 67-50 over Junction City.
Kinniburgh 19. Umbenhower 10. Verastegui 8. Scanlan 5. Martin 2. Bowman 2. Wing 2. Brooks 2
