REMSEN - The Marcus-Meriden-Cleghorn girls put up a good fight after a shaky first quarter here against Remsen St. Mary's last week, but it wasn't enough for the Eagles and they fell to the Hawks, 54-47, in War Eagle Conferebce basketball action.

Alissa McDermott scored 11 points to lead MMC and Alex Dreckman scored 10. Sarah Dreckman led MMC on the boards with five rebounds and she, McDermott and Amber Neisius each had two steals. McDermott grabbed four rebounds.. Alison Meehan blocked three shots.

The Eagles netted 18-50 field goals for 36 percent, and sank 14-24 free throws.

Lyndsie Schorg paced the Hawks with 27 points, and Paige Harpenau added eight. St. Mary's canned 22-66 shots for 40 percent, and made 12-28 free throws in the foul-plagued contest.

The youthful Lady Eagles posted a 1-8 mark heading into the Christmas break, and they resume action on January 4th, when they take on South O'Brien in non-conference action in Paullina.
