After the Musketeers’ matchup on Tuesday against Columbia was cancelled due to inclimate weather, the Marissa Meteors traveled to Red Bud to take on the 2-1 Musketeers.
Red Bud started off slow on the offensive end, shooting 0/4 from the field on their first four attempts. Marissa’s Hunter Baker scored the first two for Marissa with a spot up jumper from the wing. Max Diewald ended Red Bud’s shooting troubles by draining back to back three’s to take a 6-4 lead early on. Nick Fehr followed the Diewald three’s with a turnaround jumper off the inbound to put Red Bud up by four. The Musketeer offense clicked in the remaining minutes of the first, as Wyatt Cowell found Fehr for an open three. Parker VanDorn closed out the quarter with a two point jumper from the top of the key and a falling floater to put the Musketeers up by 10. VanDorn was effective on both sides of the ball as he blocked Marissa’s final shot of the quarter to keep Red Bud up 17-7 to end the first.
