Lakeside Warriors get first district win

SIBLEY — The Lakeside Warriors got their first district win of the year with a last-second win over Homer Tuesday night in Sibley.

After a back-and-forth game, Lakeside's Jamarion Teal tipped in a missed shot at the buzzer to give the Warriors the 58-56 win.

"It was a great win for us," Lakeside head coach Jason Gould said. "The kids were excited and hopefully we can carry this momentum the rest of the week and the rest of the season."

Lakeside started slow, trailing by 11 early.

"We trailed 18-7 at the end of the first quarter," Gould said. "Homer came out and hit some three-pointers that set a bad tone for us."
The Warriors fought back in the second quarter to cut into the lead.

"We picked it up in the second quarter and out-scored them 20-17," Gould said. "We had cut it down to two points before Homer scored the last few points of the half and pushed it back to eight."

The Warriors re-grouped at the half and came out a different team and out-scored the Pelicans, 16-3, in the third quarter.

"We came out and played some of the best basketball we've played all year," Gould said. "Offensively we did what we wanted to do and got some good shots, and defensively we played really well."

The fourth quarter was even until Teal's tip in.

"The fourth quarter was just a war, back-and-forth," Gould said. "We were just able to score the last two points.

Maurice Moore led the Warriors with 18 points and Teal added 17. Frankie Miles scored nine, Lance Williams had eight and Davion Whiting scored six.

Lakeside will head to Shreveport on Friday for two varsity games with Calvary Baptist starting at 6 p.m.
