First Half: It was all Menominee right off the bat with a quick steal and lay-up by Erin Barrette to put the Maroons up 2-0 against the Redettes early. Menominee would then continue to go on a 19-0 run against the Redettes. That was until Zoe Smith dropped a 3-point shot to finally put the Redettes on the board.

The second quarter would be a little slower paced compared to the first. However Menominee would continue to pull away with Emma Anderson hitting a 3-pointer for the Maroons. Redette Maria Millado would try to get some points for her team, but would only score two of Marquette’s five to end the half.

The final eight minutes of play would be relatively slow going for the Maroons trying to maintain their lead. Zoe Smith would yet again send up a 3-pointer to bring the Maroon lead to 23.  McPhee for the Redettes would score four points off the bench and fresh off a junior varsity game.
