Tale Of Two Games

It was the tale of two games on Saturday afternoon as the McMaster Marauders’ basketball teams hosted the Brock Badgers.

The tale wasn’t just the differing results but the officiating as well.

In the women’s game, the teams got off to a very slow start, combining for just seven points over the first half of the opening quarter. Of the seven points, McMaster scored five of them. By the end of the first quarter the Marauders had woken up to lead the game 15-4.

Brock opened the second quarter going on an 8-2 run over the first four minutes, cutting their deficit to five points. However, the lady Marauders would put up 16 points in the final six minutes of the half to take a 33-19 lead to the dressing room.

McMaster continued to control the game in the second half, outscoring Brock 42-25. Those 42 second half points almost matched the entire total of the Badgers in the game as the Marauders won 75-44.

Lexie Spadafora led all Marauders with 18 points while Linnawa Harper put up 17 of her own and Jelena Mamic put up 14 points. Harper would add in four steals to her totals. On the boards, Mamic pulled in seven rebounds while Spadafora, Erin Burns and Sarah Gates each had six.

In the loss, Kristin Gallant scored 14 points with Baelie Campbell added 11.

While there were 28 fouls called in the women’s game, the officials were non-existent. The same could not be said of the officials in the men’s game though.

The men’s game featured 55 personal fouls, some of them very questionable, a technical foul each way and four players fouling out of the game.

Brock jumped out to a 6-0 lead before McMaster put their first points on the board, but from that point it would be another three minutes until either team added to their totals. At the close of the opening quarter of play the Badgers held a slim 14-10 lead.

The Badgers took control of the game in the second quarter, adding 23 points. McMaster continued to struggle with their shooting but were able to put up 19 points to be down by just four baskets headed to halftime.

McMaster could not get closer in the second half as the refs took over calling 30 personal fouls and the two technical fouls which had both coaches befuddled with what was going on out on the court.

The Marauder men would eventually lose the game 89-73 to Brock.

Five players were in double digits for McMaster with Sasha Simic leading the way with 16 points and David McCulloch two points behind. McCulloch also led the team in rebounds with nine while Kareem Collins pulled in eight of his own.

Mac’s clear inefficiency in shooting let them down in this game as they shot 27.4% from the floor and missed 14 free throws.

For Brock, Dani Elgadi scored 24 points, hitting nine of his 14 attempted field goals and led the way with 12 rebounds. Cassidy Ryan also cracked the 20 point-mark, finishing the game with 23 points.

The Marauders are back in action on Wednesday January 10th when they travel to Waterloo to face the Warriors with the women’s game starting the night off at 6:00 PM and the men’s game scheduled to start at 8:00 PM.

If you’ve got nothing better to do. OK, so maybe even if you do. Wouldn’t you rather talk sports, post pics of games, solve sports quizzes, and redeem loyalty points for free stuff? Of course you do. And why wouldn’t you! Your mother-in-law will get over that nasty fall. The garbage? You get used to the smell. If you’ve got the time, fansfrenzy is the place to waste it.
