Renton girls fall to Mark Morris 67-29
The Mark Morris Monarchs started fast and never took their foot off the gas, blasting past the Renton Indians 67-29 in Friday night's regional state playoff game at Kent-Meridian High School.
The Monarchs jumped out to a 17-3 lead in the first quarter and never looked back, capitalizing on Renton mistakes and turnovers and missing very few shots. The trend continued in the second, with Renton seemingly unable to get a basket to fall.
By the time the teams hit the break, Mark Morris was up 29-7, with three of Renton's points coming on a 3-pointer in the final minute.
Renton came out better in the second half, but still had no answer for the Monarch's speedy attack. By the time the third period ended, Renton was down by 30 points, 51-21.
Even with a seemingly insurmountable lead, Mark Morris hustled up and down the floor, dropping back on defense and stifling the Indians, who had trouble finding the net, at almost every turn, running the score to 67-29 and bringing the Indians' season to an end.
Renton finished the season at 20-8.
