Marshall rallies in third place game

NORMAL - Marshall (25-7) opened the game up with an early run led by first team all-state Adrienne GodBold along with nice contributions from guard Raven Gary to win third place in the Class 3A game 56-43. "It wasn't the way they wanted to end their season but it was nice to finished with a victory," said Gary after the game.

The Springfield Senators were able to close the gap at the half and get the game within 2 points, 20-18, but lack of shooting attempts and turnovers held them back.

“Shooting was a BIG part of the game," said coach Brad Scheffler.  "We shot 14 of 59 and this kinda went along with what’s been happening this weekend.”

In the second period, both teams came out tight and playing tentative resulting from a shower of turnovers. The Senators opened the second half with a steal by the senior Allison Anderson, but turned the ball over to the Commando’s.  “We did well to make it to state but people didn’t get a chance to see how good we really are,” said the uncommitted guard Anderson.

Shortly thereafter, GodBold was able to settled down and begin playing her game. She finished the contest with 23 points and 8 blocked shots. "The one thing I'll remember the most is last year's

state championship," said the Illinois recruit GodBold. "But third [in the state] is good enough."

This is the sixth third place trophy the Commando's will place in their trophy case.

Coach Gaters was very enthusiastic after the game say "the girls played hard and put it all out on the floor."

Springfield (29-5) were led by freshmen Zahna Medley with 10 points off the bench.
