Perry wins 15th straight conference game

Marcela Rodriguez scored a game-high 14 points in Perry’s 54-32 win at Geneva on Tuesday.

With the victory, the Pirates improved to 4-0 overall and 1-0 in the Chagrin Valley Conference Lake Division. Perry has now won 15 straight league games.

“They did a pretty good job early of keeping a lot of pressure on us and I thought we missed some easy stuff that we should make and that kind of kept the game a little bit closer early on,” said Perry coach Roy Infalvi, Jr. “But, I thought our defense and transition scoring really made a difference.”

Perry led 11-3 after the first quarter and 26-14 at halftime.

“I didn’t think our half-court offensive flow was very good,” Infalvi said. “We had some good looks but it just wasn’t clicking. We got a lot of points off our defense and transition and that made a big difference.”

Margeaux Jean and Izzy McKoon also scored in double figures for the Pirates with 11 and 10 points, respectively. Gigi Vicini added seven points and Grace McKoon, Rylee Hodge, and JaC’ana Anderson each contributed with four.

“Gigi had all seven of her points in the first half,” Infalvi said. “She played a really good offensive game in the first quarter and the first half. She took the ball to the basket a couple of times and did a really nice job. I told her after the game that she has to keep playing with that aggressiveness. Margeaux had four points in the first half and seven in the fourth quarter. She did a really nice job.”

Olivia Wilms led the Eagles with seven points. Delaney Marrison and Brooke Richmond finished with six and five points, respectively.
