Bobcat girls’ netters find trouble at CR Washington

CEDAR RAPIDS – Even leaving the CIML can be disastrous.

The Marshalltown girls’ basketball team strayed from conference play for Saturday’s game at Cedar Rapids Washington but found similar results, falling 57-30 to the Class 5A No. 8-ranked Warriors.

Washington (12-3) won its fourth straight, leading 44-13 going into the fourth quarter. Aleena Hobbs had a game-high 16 points and Danielle Franklin added 12 for the Warriors, whose 57 points accounted for the team’s second-lowest scoring total of the season.

Marshalltown (3-13) suffered its fifth consecutive loss. Eisha Oden had team-highs of eight points and nine rebounds for the Bobcats.

Sam Hughes made a pair of 3-pointers for six points for MHS, while Lauren Mazour added four points in the loss.

The Bobcats return to CIML play on Tuesday night at the Roundhouse when they host 5A No. 4 Dowling Catholic. The 13-1 Maroons have won eight straight.
