Marauders fall to Trojans

The Mt. Vernon Marauders traveled to New Castle on Tuesday night and lost a tough Hoosier Heritage Conference matchup 51-27.

The host Trojans won their third straight game and improved to 4-3 in the HHC, which places them fourth behind Pendleton Heights (6-0), New Palestine (6-1) and Greenfield-Central (5-2).
