Mt. Vernon Edges Marion
MT. VERNON -- The Mt. Vernon Rams shook off a sluggish start to beat Marion Friday night 56-51 in South 7 play.
The Wildcats led by four after one and by as many as eight late in the second quarter, but the Rams scored the final four points of the half to cut it to 24-20 at intermission.

Marion had multiple attempts to tie or take the lead in the final minute, but could not connect.
With the win, the Rams move above the .500 mark in conference play at 5-4. The Wildcats fall to 1-7 in the league.
