Next Tuesday’s game at Clark Fork will mark the first league contest for the Lakeside boys in nearly three weeks.
The Knights did not slow their pace after opening the season 6-0 in NSL play. Since defeating Wallace Jan. 29 for their sixth North Star victory, Lakeside had gone 4-0 leading up to a Feb. 10 game at Immaculate Conception.
Included in its four-game nonleague stretch was a victory over Shadle Park JV at home.
Kenyon Spotted Horse gave reason for optimism following two ankle sprains as he scored a season-high 32 points to lead the Knights to a 92-63 victory. After taking a seven-point lead into halftime the Knights outscored the Highlanders 52-30 the rest of the way.
“We came out a little sluggish in the first half, but settled back into our press and defense and finished strong,” Coach James Twoteeth said. “I gave them three days off after our four games in six days (Jan. 29 – Feb. 3) just to give them a break and time to heal up, and I think the rest helped us.”
Lakeside 92, Shadle Park JV 63
LHS 20 20 22 30 92
SP JV 17 16 15 15 63
Spotted Horse 32 pts.; Twoteeth 14 pts.; Brown 13 pts.; Abuan 13 pts.; Higgins 8 pts.; White 5 pts.; Matt 5 pts.; Arroyo 2 pts.
Upcoming: After playing at Immaculate Conception Feb. 10, Lakeside (15-0 as of Feb. 9) travels to Clark Fork Feb. 18.
