Two quality teams in Bishop Carroll and Bishop Guilfoyle squared off in high school girls basketball Thursday night, but what was supposed to be a strong game turned into a blowout.

The host Lady Marauders routed Bishop Carroll, 67-43, in Laurel Highlands Athletic Conference play at the Pleasant Valley Gymnasium.

Bishop Guilfoyle improved to 8-1 overall and 3-0 in the section. Carroll fell to 2-2 in the section and 8-4 overall.

The Lady Marauders began the game with four straight points before Bishop Carroll scored a bucket by Courtney Link.

The Lady Marauders made it a five-point lead on a 3-point field goal by Lili Benzel with 5:15 left on the clock.

After a layup by Macy Adams with a little over 3 minutes, Bishop Carroll went on a 8-3 run to end the quarter with the game tied at 16-all.

It was another nip-and-tuck beginning of the second quarter, as Benzel began the quarter with a fast-break layup. A little more than a minute later, Courtney Link squared up the game at 18-18.

Benzel then made the second of her three treys to make it a Bishop Guilfoyle three-point lead.

It was Marina Scipioni that heated up, making a pair of 3s with her second one giving the Lady Marauders a 34-25 lead with 10 seconds left to go before halftime.

The Lady Marauders outscored Bishop Carroll, 17-14, in the third quarter, with Benzel scoring seven straight points. The Lady Maurauders dominated the fourth quarter 16-2.

"It was a hard fought victory," Guilfoyle coach Mark Moshella said. "Maybe the final score doesn't indicate that."

Bishop Guilfoyle is at Bellwood-Antis tonight, while the Lady Huskies are off until?Tuesday when they host Harmony.
