Huskies, Bees fall at home: PHOTOS

FAIRMONT — North Marion boys’ basketball team lost to Bridgeport for the second time this season on Tuesday, as the Indians pulled away after halftime for a 68-55 win.

The Huskies, who fell at BHS 60-52 last month, trailed 23-20 on Tuesday but managed to fight back and forth a 38-all tie by intemisson.

Bridgeport (15-6), though, held a 30-17 scoring edge in the second half to win for the sixth time in its past seven games.

Jordan Haywood led the Indians with 24 points.

Matt Cain — who along with Cameron Wilson were honored on Tuesday’s Senior Night — made his regular season home finale one to remember individually.

Cain scored a game-best 27 and connected on seven first-half 3-pointers.

Wilson added 12, while Cole Richards and Chase Banker each had seven and Cody Opron six.

North, which closes the regular season at 14-7, is off until it begins sectional tournament play.

  • North Marion’s rally falls short

    North Marion had all the pieces in place for a thrilling come-from-behind victory Saturday afternoon.
    The four runs in the bottom of the seventh. The tying runner on third and the Huskies’ fastest player on second. Even the clear-blue sky on the mid-70s afternoon was the perfect stage for a comeback.
