Geneva 66, Fenwick 36

Geneva came out of the gate strong during Wednesday’s non-conference game and never slowed down.

That spelled doom for visiting Fenwick, which was never really in the ballgame, losing 66-36.

“We came out too slow and too sluggish,” Fenwick coach Dave Power said. “They were a step ahead all the time and shot well.”

Geneva (16-5) didn’t shoot lights out at the start, but it shot well enough to jump to a 10-0 lead and an impressive 40-9 mark at halftime.

The Vikings took control early and never let up, especially on the glass where they not only had several second and even third chance opportunities on the offensive side of the ball, but kept the Friars to one-and-done most of the evening.

“We talked about that (rebounding) yesterday,” Geneva coach Sarah Meadows said. “There were three keys for us. We had to rebound, we had to talk on defense and we just had to get back to playing with this attitude of they’re-not-going-to-score-on-us defense.”
