Northwood Tops Lakers
January 16, 2013By Chandler Mynhier of Lakeland High School
The Lakekand boys' basketball team fell to the Northwood Panthers Tuesday night 70-47. A strong fisrt half from the Panthers was too much for the Lakers to handle as they gave up 29 points in the second quarter. In the second half the Lakers outscored Northwood 25-24 but that proved not enough. Spencer Mortola led the Lakers with 11 points while Mitch Herber added eight.
The Lakeland JV also lost to the Northwood, this game by a score of 44-23. Josh Collyer had a good game for the Lakers scoring 16 points. Junior Tanner Oakley scored seven of his own. Lakeland will travel to Hamilton on Friday night seeking their first conference win on the season.
