Barons Beat Lakers
February 26, 2014Lakeland High School
The Lakeland Lakers Boys’ basketball program suffered two loses on Tuesday February 25, 2014. The Dekalb Barons proved to be too much for the Lakers to handle as they outscored them to win the contest 69-52. The Lakers had a very good first half as they stuck right with the barons; but the Lakers trailed at the half by 4. The tall Dekalb team was easily able to break down the Laker defense by simply throwing over the top every time. It took the Lakers to the fourth quarter to learn how to counter it. By then it was too late for the Lakers to mount a comeback. Leading the Lakers were Seniors Marco Olivares with 20 points, Chandler Mynhier with 17 points, and Brant Betts with 13 points.
The Lakeland JV team went through the same thing as mentioned above. Their defense was broken down enough for holes to be discovered and the Barons simply just exploited those hole. The Barons really took charge in the second half as they outscored your Lakers 29-11. This resulted in a final score of 21- 45. Leading scorers for your Lakers were Austin Hoffelder with 12 points and Josh Collyer with 4 points.
