North Marion girls drop close game to Park

WHEELING — It came down to the wire.

The North Marion Lady Huskies (4-2, 1-1 Big 10) were just a mere three-point shot away from taking Wheeling Park (3-2) into overtime Saturday on the road.

North Marion was able to get up a long shot at the end of the game from deep in the corner, but it fell short. In turn, North Marion fell by a slim margin, 68-65.

Head coach Mike Parrish knew it was going to be a close one, though, after Wheeling Park took a 51-47 lead into the fourth quarter.

“I told them when you play on the road and leave it close, it’s tough to win,” Parrish said. “We didn’t play very good. We had a lot of foul trouble and a lot of turnovers.”

Even with a close game throughout, another thing the team had, Parrish said, was a lot of chances.

“We were up 10 points at one time in the first half,” he said. “We were even up three at the half.”

The Huskies were indeed up, 34-31 at the half after a 16-16 deadlock after the first quarter.

North Marion’s Anna Marie Moscufo had a big game for the Huskies, though.

The senior poured out a season-high 25 points to go with 10 rebounds, giving her a double-double for the first time this season.

Presley Tuttle and Megan Haller were each in double figures as they scored 11 and 14 points respectively.

Cara Egress scored six, Noca Singleton scored four, Christa Tobin and Mackensy Hess each scored three and Brittany Sigley added one point in the loss.

Despite the loss, though, coach Parrish believes the game was a good tune-up for the team’s upcoming venture to Disney World next weekend, but they won’t be going for vacation.

“It’s good to play good competition,” Parrish said of Wheeling Park, a AAA opponent. “We’ve played a lot of good teams up to this point. (At Disney) we play a team out of Kentucky that we’ve never seen.”

The Lady Huskies will open up their Disney Tournament Friday, Dec. 27.
