  • Lady Knights pound Green County by 35

    On Tuesday of last week, the Marion County Lady Knights faced the Green County Lady Dragons at the Roby Dome. The Lady Knights raced ahead from the beginning and were able to keep the Lady Dragons on the ropes. A quick spurt early in the first quarter from the locals gave a glimpse of how the game would play out.  Marion County’s up-tempo offense and smothering defense proved to be too much for Green County in a 77-42 rout.
