Lady Eagles had a fast 8-0 start, but Marion came back to trail 20-15 at end of first quarter.  Lady Eagles used 23-9 second quarter to take 42-24 lead at the half and got plenty of playing time for reserves in the 67-36 win. Mallory Hampton, Micah Black and Haley Cameron led the offense with 22, 15 and 13 points respectively.
