PETOSKEY - Marquette couldn't get its offense untracked and lost for the second time in two days, 38-31 to Petoskey, on Saturday at the Petoskey Invitational high school girls basketball tournament.

The Redettes lost 54-50 in overtime to Brighton on Friday night in the opening round of the event.

"We came out of the gates just kind of flat," MSHS coach Ben Smith said about Saturday's game. "We just didn't have much energy."

The Redettes didn't get into double digits in scoring until the second half, trailing 21-9 at halftime.

"But we ended up cutting their lead to five points with about four minutes to go," Smith said. "So we did a few thing right to stay that close."

Petoskey's lead was at 27-20 entering the fourth quarter.

Hunter Viitala, who was the lone Marquette player named to the all-tournament team, led her squad with 11 points Saturday while contributing four rebounds, three steals and two assists.

Teammate Morgan Seibert pulled down a team-high seven rebounds to go with two points, scored as she made both of her free-throw attempts.

As a team the Redettes were 7 of 12 at the free-throw line.

Liana Storm had five steals and four assists, while Lydia Kurin scored eight points and Lizzie Kurin and Kirsten Iwanski each grabbed five rebounds.

Also on Saturday in the tournament's varsity championship game, St. Ignace defeated Brighton, 55-41, while Marquette captured the JV title with a 67-26 blowout of St. Ignace as Martha Storm scored 21 points.
