Farmington Hills Mercy started fast and never looked back Thursday night as it cruised to a 56-41win over host Harper Woods Chandler Park in girls basketball.
The Marlins posted 25 points in the first eight minutes and outscored the Eagles in the second quarter, 11-5, for a commanding lead at halftime, 36-16.
"I liked the energy we came out with, and we played really defensively," Mercy coach Gary Morris said. "Our defense led to some good offense and easy conversions. We followed it up with a solid second quarter."
"In the second half, we weren't quite as efficient defensively. That prevent- ed us from stretching the lead from where it was at the half."
