The Marquette Explorers handed the Carrollton Hawks their first girls basketball defeat of the season Saturday afternoon.
The Explorers built a 23-20 halftime lead and took a 37-36 edge to the fourth quarter. Carrollton got off a potential game-tying shot at the buzzer, but it did not fall and the Explorers escaped.
Emily Struble scored the Hawk’s first 11 points and finished with a team-leading 15. Hannah Krumwiede scored 11 points and Hannah Robinson added nine for Carrollton.
