Farmington Hills Mercy won another nail-biter Friday in girls basketball, edging visiting Warren Regina in its Catholic League opener, 30-27.
The Marlins were ahead after one quarter, 12-7, but the teams were tied at halftime, 18-18. Mercy had a 24-21 lead through three periods.
“I think it was typical of a lot of our games,” coach Gary Morris said. “Both teams played really hard. It seems we have to grind things out and that’s what we did again tonight.
“It was a nice week for us; we were 2-0. We’re getting a little healthier, which we hope will help us moving forward.”
Mercy’s Jackie Bauer scored 14 points and Katie Bryce and Zora Pullen six each. Teresa Biehl had 12 points for Regina.
Pullen, who played her first game after recovering from an off-season knee injury, also had four rebounds.
The Marlins, who overcame Chandler Park for a 39-35 victory Tuesday, were 3-of-7 at the foul line and the Saddlelites 4-of-7.
Both teams are 4-3 overall. Mercy is 1-0 in the Central Division and Regina 1-1.
