FORTVILLE — Mt. Vernon’s offense is coming around just in time.

In a battle of defending state champions, the Marauders beat 2A No. 2-ranked Fort Wayne Canterbury 62-48 in the regular season finale for both squads.

Sydney Shelton led MV with 27 points and Erica Moore played perhaps her best game since returning from knee surgery, notching 14 points on 7-of-10 shooting.

The same duo helped the Marauders (15-4) capture a 3A state title last season, but the team’s offense has been hit-and-miss this winter. MV laid an egg in a 47-38 loss to upcoming sectional foe Greenfield-Central on Jan. 24. But Friday’s victory marked back-to-back 60-point efforts for the Marauders, the first such instance this season.

The win was “by far” one of the Marauders’ most complete outings of the year, Shelton remarked.

“I think our offense came from our rebounding and our defense — leading to easy shots and fast breaks,” the sophomore said.
