Caiden Atienza launches a shot

Caiden Atienza launches a shot in a lot of traffic as three Marion defenders try to stop him during the Maquoketa Cardinals’ home game Friday night against Marion.

West Delaware 55

Maquoketa 41

(At West Delaware Jan. 28, home Jan. 31)

The disappointing season continues for the Maquoketa Cardinals boys basketball team, which lost two games last week: West Delaware 55, Maquoketa 41 on Tuesday, Jan. 28, and Marion 62, Maquoketa 52 on Friday, Jan. 31. 

The Cards had a shot in both games last week but just didn’t have the fire power to get over the hump and pull off a win. No Cardinal scored in double figures; Caiden Atienza scored a team-high nine points. 

The Cards were in foul trouble most of the game Tuesday as Emmett Sheets fouled out. The Cardinals’ big men Atienza and Clayton Widel also were saddled with four fouls. The Cardinals committed 21 total fouls in the Jan. 28 game.
