Lady Marshals suffer second loss, fall at McCracken County

The last two weeks have been challenging for the Marshall County Lady Marshals.

After suffering their first loss of the season to the Owensboro Catholic Lady Aces in the championship game of the First Bank Holiday Bash at South Warren, the Lady Marshals posted a 1-1 record last week, defeating Mayfield 63-21, before falling to McCracken County, 56-34.

In its win over Mayfield on Monday, Marshall County received big scoring games from freshman guard Skylar Waller and seniors Jada Driver and Halle Langhi.

Waller led the way with 17 points while Langhi added 16 and Driver finished with 14.

On Tuesday night, the Lady Marshals faced one of their biggest tests of the season, taking on the top-10 ranked McCracken County Lady Mustangs on the road.

A poor shooting night from Driver paired with a dominant effort from McCracken County junior forward Destiny Thomas helped the Lady Mustangs gallop to the 20-point victory at Strawberry Hills Pharmacy Arena.

One bright spot for the Lady Marshals in their loss to McCracken was Langhi’s continued presence in the paint.

Langhi led Marshall County scorers, pouring in 15 points and hauling in 13 rebounds.

Marshals struggle on the road

While the Lady Marshals saw their fair share of struggles last week, so did the Marshall County Marshals.

A tall task at McCracken County proved to be too much for junior guard Cole Mills and the Marshals as they fell to the Mustangs 47-34.

Senior forward Quinn Smith led the Marshals in scoring, finishing with 12 points while junior forward Wade Moore added seven and Mills recorded six.

On Saturday, the Marshals traveled to Crittenden County High School to participate in the Western Kentucky Showcase.

Despite a valiant effort against a solid Caldwell County team, the Marshals fell to the Tigers, 58-52.
