The Marauders lose their 2nd game in a row to a tough Byron team. The Eagles JV team has yet to lose in conference play this year. The Eagles forced several turnovers in the first half and were able to hold on to a 21-15 lead at halftime. The Marauders came out hard in the second half with great pressure defense that led to some easy transition baskets while holding the Eagles to just 4 points in the 3rd quarter. The Marauders then extended their lead up to 7 points at one point early in the 4th quarter. With less than a minute to go in the game the Marauders trailed by just 2 points, but key turnovers and missed opportunities in the paint proved to be the difference. Late turnovers and foul trouble plagued the Marauders in the final three minutes as the Eagles put them away late with free throws to hold on for the win. Next up, the Marauders head to Durand, Friday, February 8 at 5:30.
