MHS girls

Marysville guard McKenna Minneman makes a pass in the second half. Minneman scored 5 points off the bench in Friday's game against Abilene. 

Visiting Abilene got as close to Marysville as 29-27 early in the fourth quarter of the girls' basketball game Friday night. 

The Cowgirls stayed in reach throughout the last period, even during a barrage of 3-pointers that put MHS up 39-30 with 2:19 to go. Abilene hit back-to-back treys, but could not get closer than 39-36.
