Lakeview rolls DC West
Lakeview girls basketball picked up its eighth win of the season in dominant fashion over Douglas County West 72-18 on Thursday night at home.
The Vikings defense continued to excel allowing only six Falcon players to score. Emma Kroger led DC West with six points.
Lakeview’s Reese Janssen scored 18 points for her side going 8 for 12 from the field.
The Vikings dominated right from the beginning of the game outscoring the Falcons 24-3 in the first quarter.
DC West 59, Lakeview 57: The Lakeview boys basketball team’s slow start came back to haunt them on Thursday night in a 59-57 defeat at home against Douglas County West. The Vikings trailed by 10 at half time and nearly came all the way back, but fell just shy dropping their record to 3-7.
Lakeview struggled to defend a trio of DC West players who all scored double digit points. Freshman Payson Gillespie made seven of his eight free throw attempts on his way to 17 points while senior Ty Eggen and sophomore Kyle Marick scored 14 and 13 points, respectively.
York 37, Scotus Girls 30: The reigning state champions lost their fourth game of the year after a 37-30 road defeat at the hands of York.
A slow start in both halves is what doomed the Shamrocks. York outscored Scotus in the first quarter 8-3, but the Shamrocks responded with an 11-5 second to take a one-point lead going into half time.
York outscored Scotus 10-5 in the third quarter and held the lead the rest of the way.
Abbie Zoucha led the Shamrocks with 11 points during the game.
“We just had a tough time finishing around the rim,” said Scotus head coach Jarrod Ridder in comments sent to the Telegram. “We had too many turnovers against their defense.
“We need to do a better job of attacking with the dribble and with movement. “York put a diamond-and-one on Camille, which was something that was new for us.”
