The Dux lead slowly slip away Tuesday night, falling to Holland Christian 41-51. The Dux were off to a terrific start and carried great momentum going into halftime leading 26-17 over the Maroons.
Credit to Holland Christian for cranking up their intensity on defense, forcing the Dux into careless turnovers which HC capitalized on in transition baskets. The Dux struggled to get stuff going in the second half on the offensive end against HC pressure while giving up too many open shots on the other end.
Maroons took the lead in the 3rd quarter and the Dux fought hard to regain it, even cutting it to a 3 point game within the last few minutes of the game, but HC was able to knock down their free throws to close it out.
The Dux were led offensively by Tally Martinez with 13 points including three 3’s. Ryleigh Farrell also had 9 points while Lucy Bouvier had 7.
