The Marion High School Lady Warriors were plagued by turnovers and sluggish offense Tuesday at Remington, losing 47-22.
Whitney Gordon got the Lady Warriors off to a promising start with a 3-point shot from the left side and a jumper in the lane for a 5-0 Marion lead two minutes into the game.
Lady Bronc Jessi Green gave Remington their first lead of the game at 6-5 with 4:05 remaining in the quarter.
Once they had the lead, Remington never looked back, outscoring Marion, 22-6, the remainder of the half to go to intermission leading 28-11. Gordon and Corey Shields accounted for all the Marion scoring in the first half.
Poor shooting and turnovers were the norm for both teams in the third quarter. Marion didn’t score until Gordon hit a shot in the lane with less than a minute remaining. Remington carried a 34-13 lead into the final quarter.
The Lady Warriors made up some ground in the fourth quarter against the Remington reserves, scoring 7 points in the final two minutes, including two layups by Kelli Hess.
Game statistics were unavailable as of press time.
Marion will try to get on the winning track Friday when they take on Moundridge at USD 408 Sports and Aquatics Center.
