DEARBORN — Entering Thursday night’s road battle at Dearborn Divine Child, the Farmington Hills Mercy basketball team had a single blemish on its Catholic League Central Division record.
Fittingly enough, it came at the hands of the Falcons back on Dec. 21.
Leaving the Divine Child gym this night, the Marlins’ single blemish remained.
“This was a big win for us,” Mercy coach Gary Morris said of the 46-31 victory. “This is a league where every game is tough. All season we’ve been involved with close games. Really, this one was too until the fourth.”
Mercy’s last loss this season was the 54-39 setback to DC at home in December.
In that game, the Falcons came out firing, connecting on a number of 3-pointers, and the Marlins never recovered from.
