The run came too late for the Marshall Academy Lady Patriots Saturday morning.

MA, a Class AA private school, trailed Lake Cormorant, a Class 5A public school, 10-6 after one quarter and 25-10 at halftime.
Jessica Deming was the Lady Patriots’ leading scorer. She had 11, with eight of those coming in the second half.
