A pair of 7-5 teams got together on Tuesday for a Downriver League tilt. This visiting Marauders entered Trenton High School on a five-game winning streak, while the host Trojans were looking to bounce back from a tough loss at home last Friday against Woodhaven.

It appeared early on that it would be a tight contest for 32 minutes, but Carlson (8-5, 6-3 DRL) flexed its muscles in the second half to win by a score of 73-54, pushing its win streak to six games.

With the 19-point win on Tuesday over the Trojans (7-6, 4-5 DRL), the Maraudersí margin of victory during the winning streak is better than 16 points per game.

They held just a 32-26 lead at halftime and proceeded to extend that at some in the third and fourth quarters. And despite the relatively high scoring output, Carlson Coach Robert Raymond said there was plenty of room for improvement.

"I thought we played well, but we didn't shoot the ball very well," Raymond said. "I think we were 2-for -17 from three-point. Not going to win many games like that, but they overcame that by moving up and down the floor, kind of exposing a weakness of (Trentonís)."

Raymond got just three triples in total from his team, two off the hand of Josh Lazarski, who finished with 13 points. The other was courtesy of Tyler Koons, who finished with a team-high 18 points.

Conversely, Carlson was also able to overcome eight 3-pointers from Trenton, five of which came in the first half.

For the Trojans, the triples were a highlight of an otherwise tough game.

"We just didn't hit shots tonight," Trenton Coach Jay Babyak said. "And that's part of the deal, when you don't hit shots you're in trouble.

"We got to learn how to handle pressure a little bit," Babyak said. "My starters didn't play all that great tonight and they usually contribute a ton. We're going to do what we do. We played hard, we're always going to - just got to make more shots."

Babyak did get a very good showing from Ryan Barker, who led all scorers in the game with 21 points. Barker was responsible for three of the team's eight three's and also converted on eight of his nine attempts from the free-throw line.

As for Carlson, Raymond sees a team that is committed to the system put in place.

"Our kids are playing very hard, they are buying in to how we play," Raymond said. "We play a certain way and it hurt us early on. If one kid isn't playing where or how he is supposed to, it's going to hurt us. That said, we can still shoot better and play more solid, being in the right spot, controlling the middle of the floor."

Carlson will look to make it seven in a row this Friday at home against Melvindale, who was undefeated in league play entering Tuesday. Trenton, meanwhile, will look to snap a two-game slide on Friday, in its final home game of the year against Taylor Truman.
