NEWTON - Kaylie Rhoads scored a season-high 16 points and the Newton girls' basketball team turned back Marshalltown, 38-31, in Monday's non-conference contest.

The 5-foot-7 guard shot 5-for-10 from the field and from the free-throw line, while also pulling down a season-high eight rebounds for the Cardinals (2-3). Newton jumped out to a 7-2 lead after the first quarter and upped the advantage to 17-6 at the half.

Marshalltown (2-5) outscored their hosts 25-21 in the second half, but it was not enough to overcome the early deficit.

Eisha Oden and Lauren Mazour both scored nine points to lead the Bobcats, who played their third game this season without point guard Taylor Wagner. Amanda Hughes had five points, including the team's only 3-pointer, while Ellyn Boland contributed four points off the bench.

Newton got eight points from Kristin Samson, while Michaela Jacobsen had five and Sarah Kalkhoff had four points and a season-high eight rebounds. The Cardinals had 12 offensive rebounds on the night, including five for Katelyn Camp.

Newton also shot 15-for-27 from the free-throw line in contrast to Marshalltown's 4-for-11.
