Fenton 53, Elmwood Park 32
Elmwood Park had no answer for Fenton’s long-rang shooting Friday in Bensenville. The Bison (13-6) connected on 6-of-11 3-point attempts in the first half to take a commanding 32-13 lead and never looked back to improve their Metro Suburban Conference record to 6-2. Fenton made its only 3-point attempt in the second half.
Senior Tina Guarino drained the first of three straight 3-pointers for the Bison, with sophomore Jessica Bango hitting the other two, to spark a 13-0 spurt to close the first half.
Bango, a 5-foot-5 guard, made a 3-pointer on the first shot of the game and Fenton led the remainder of the contest. She had 10 points and four rebounds to lead a balanced attack, while hitting 3-of-4 3-point attempts.

Elmwood Park was led by Koraima Marroquin (game-high 16 points, three rebounds).
“We had that nice little run at the end of the second quarter that kind of catapulted us ahead. We don’t have a height advantage over many teams, but tonight we did.” — Fenton coach Tim Anderson
