Mercy basketball team uses good start and strong finish to stay perfect on the season
December 10, 2013
FARMINGTON HILLS — A pair of unbeaten basketball squads collided in Farmington Hills Tuesday night, but it was the hometown Marlins who had the last laugh.
Mercy kept its record perfect through three games, beating Flint Powers Catholic 59-46 in a contest that was much closer than the final score would suggest.
“We knew we were playing against a quality team,” Mercy coach Gary Morris said. “Flint Powers was pretty highly ranked in the preseason, as were we. So we knew it'd be tough. But the girls battled well. It was a good win for us.”
Mercy came out of the gate quickly, taking a 15-8 lead after the first quarter and 28-16 advantage by halftime.
The momentum shifted to Powers in the third, though, as the visitors outscored Mercy 22-12 in the frame, pulling within two points heading into the final eight minutes.
“Flint seemed to come out with all the energy in the third quarter,” Morris said. “So before the fourth started, I challenged our girls, and they really responded.”
Mercy doubled up on Powers 18-9 in the fourth, hanging on for a third win in a row.
Taylor Jones powered the offense with 18 points, while Sam Bauer and Candice Leatherwood scored 13, each. Sierra LaGrande added nine points in the win.
Mercy (3-0) hosts Auburn Hulls Avondale at 7 p.m. Dec. 13.
