Marlins power past Redfish, 71-69
Port Aransas had to work to hold the Redfish to only seven points in the final period, and they had to come from behind for the win, trailing 57-62 at the end of the third quarter, but the game still goes in the W column.
Andrew Groseclose drew praise from coach Joe Kocurek for his defense, despite the team’s giving up 69 points – 41 of them to one player, Garek Duarez.
Tyler Pate led the scoring with 29 points, 15 of which were threepointers. Mac Owens followed with 15 points; Caleb Rogers and Tanner Merrill each had nine; Dillon Martin scored four, Storm Bales hit three and Thomas Winton put in two to round out the Marlins scoring. Of those, besides Pate’s five from outside the circle, Rogers and Bales each hit one three-pointer.
The Marlins are now 5-1 on the season and face the possibility of a rematch against their Division II 1A rivals during the Redfish Classic in Austwell-Tivoli, Dec. 9-11.
