The 7th-seeded Marathon Olympians defeated 10th-seeded Sharon Springs in the first round of the Section IV Class D playoff tournament at Marathon High School Tuesday night.
The Olympians won the game with a score of 66-46.
“They (Sharon Springs) gave us their best shot,” said Marathon Head Coach Jim Holland. “I just think that we had that little third quarter implosion, and we just needed to get our heads back. That’s what we did in the fourth quarter and came out with the win.”
Sharon Springs was led by Luke Enyart (14 points) and Mike Cashman (14 points).
When asked about how he felt about the game, Marathon senior Conor Holland said, “we are getting healthy again with a couple of guys missing last week. We’re finally starting to get back together as a group, and we are starting to roll now.”
Here is a score breakdown from Tuesday’s game:
Marathon is now scheduled to play in the second round of the Section IV Class D Tournament this Friday (February 24th) against 2nd-seeded South Kortright on the road. According to Section IV, the game is scheduled to tip off at 6pm.
“We know that they (South Kortright) press and play well together as a team,” said Coach Holland. “We just have to be able to play better defense. We have to play the way that we have been playing to finish the season.
“We are going to go right at it with them,” added Conor Holland. “We are going to play as hard as we can, as fast as we can, and work together as a team to try to get a win.”
