SHREVEPORT – In a close District 1-2A game, the Lakeside Warriors fell to Calvary Baptist, 61-58, Friday night at Calvary.
"It was a close game all the way through," Lakeside head coach Jason Gould said. "We fought hard and scrapped and played pretty well but just fell short."
The Warriors missed a court-length three-pointer at the buzzer that would have tied the game up.
Calvary led 11-9 at the end of the first quarter and 24-22 at the half. The Cavaliers out-scored Lakeside by one in the third and the teams played even, 17-17, in the fourth.
"It was tight all the way," Gould said. "Except for early in the fourth quarter. They built up a 14-point lead on us, but we came storming back.
The shot at the buzzer would have tied it up."
Early foul trouble came back to haunt the Warriors.
"We were in foul trouble all night from the very beginning," Gould said. "My two inside guys, Jamarion Teal and Frankie Miles played very few minutes. Every time they were in there, fouls were called on them and they fouled out early. And that made it tough on us in the second half because we had very little size inside."
Maurice Moore had an outstanding game with 26 points and Davion Whiting had nine. Darryl Moore added eight points.
The Warriors will play at North Caddo on Tuesday night.
