Thu 3-18-2021

Martin County West got the victory over Mt. Lake area/comfrey 55 to 43. The Mavericks had an 11 point lead going into the locker room at halftime behind a 14 point performance from 8th grader Emily Anderson who was also 4/4 from behind the 3 point line in the first half.  The Wolverines came out in the 2nd half and switched up their defense which held the Mavericks to just 4 points through the first 7 or so minutes in the 2nd half. Marissa Whitehead scored 11 of her 13 points in the 2nd half.

Thea Anderson came in off the bench and scored 8 for the Mavericks. Emily Dunlop got back on the hardwood after suffering a knee injury earlier this season. Leading the way for the Wolverines was Anika Fast with 17 and Brooke Naas had 11. The Mavericks move on to the next round and will face St. Clair on Friday. We’ll have all the action on Xtreme Country starting with the pre-game show at 6:45.
