Hawks eek past Eagles 53-50

Thursday, December 17, 2009

Remsen St. Mary's improved to 4-2 on the season with a 53-50 win over Marcus-Meriden-Cleghorn Tuesday.

The Hawks, who led by as many as nine during the contest, led 15-10 after the first quarter and 22-20 at the halftime break.

"It was fairly close the whole time - within striking distance," said RSM coach Brad Gralheer, whose squad is now 2-0 in the War Eagle Conference.

Emma Krier paced the Hawks with 19 points and registered a double-double with 11 rebounds. She also chipped in five steals and four assists in the win.

Mercedees Ricke scored 16 points and just missed the double-double with her nine rebounds.

Brielle Biezuns scored nine points while freshmen Makenzie Ricke and McKenzie Hajek each grabbed three steals.

Free throws were abundant in the win as the Hawks connected on 20-of-35.

Mercedees Ricke found herself at the charity stripe the most of all her teammates - she was 10-for-20 from the free throw line in the win.

Krier added a 5-for-6 showing at the charity stripe down the stretch for the Hawks, who host Gehlen Catholic on Friday.
