Mariners capture Section Championship
Submitted By Mike Heightchew
The Moreau Catholic Mariners won the North Coast Division, Division 2 Basketball Championship 77-71 over the Tamalpais Red Tailed Hawks (Mill Valley) on March 3rd. In a game that went back and fourth, both teams played their hearts out; the outcome was in doubt right to the final buzzer.
Tamalpais started with an impressive fast beak game as they opened a 12-9 lead but the Mariners fought back with a formidable defense and were able to hold a small 38-36 lead at the half. In the third quarter, the game became a defensive battle as both teams fought fiercely under the basket forÊcontrol of the game. The Mariners then made three very important defensive plays around and under the basket, changing the direction and momentum of the game, opening a five point lead at the end of the third quarter. But the Red Tailed HawksÊwould not go away as the intense battle under the basket continued. Finally the Mariners put together their most impressive defensiveÊstand of the year to secure a hard fought victory.
Congratulations to Coach Frank Knight and the Moreau Catholic Mariners for an outstanding season and North Coast Section Championship.
