BOONVILLE— If not for first half offensive effort from the Sherburne-Earlville girls varsity basketball team, the Adirondack Wildcats could’ve made a much more significant dent in the Marauders lead during the second half of action. However, a lot can be said for a Marauder defense that only allowed the host Wildcats to score 12 points over the first 16 minutes of play.

Ultimately, the defensive stands that Sherburne-Earlville had in the first quarter left the Wildcats with a lack of offensive and defensive rhythm. This only aided the guest Marauders who scored 15 points in the opening frame. S-E added in another 14 points in the second period. Out of the Marauders 29 opening half points, Lexi Elderkin scored all 13 of her points on the night over the first two periods of play.
