“We didn’t play as well as the score leads you to believe,” said Grant coach Josh Delamater. “We were mentally exhausted from another three-game week and that was evident in the second quarter.”
Julie Ashbaugh led Grant with a game-high 18 points while Jayci Hance chipped in 13 points. Makayla Zerlaut tossed in eight points.  Five other players scored four points or more.
Grant (9-4, 4-1) will travel to Central Montcalm on Tuesday evening.
