LAKE ARTHUR C Webster Parish landed one of the premier angers in the state’s first round boys playoff games when Hardly any. 28 Lakeside knocked out No. Several Lake Arthur in Lake Arthur Feb 5th night.
In a game that was neck-and-neck most of the way, the Warriors could actually hold onto a hard-fought lead inside tense final minutes for you to win 65-59 and extend their season.
The Warriors not only get to play at least one more, they are going to get to do it at home throughout Warrior Gymnasium for what need to be a rowdy atmosphere alongside No. 12 Amite.
Head coach of the Warriors Marlon McDaniel was probably one of the least surprised at the result. He has been watched this team do less likely comebacks than Friday night.
Lakeside trailed by 7 points as soon as McDaniel took his last timeout along with 5:38 to play. Beyond this concept the Warriors were on top of things. Senior shooting guard Damion Coleman encouraged the way with 25 things, followed by senior Tyreke Lofton with Twelve points; Aldravion Taylor added 10 elements and Branthony Brown scored Seven points.
“It was a battle the whole night,” McDaniel said. “It was a good basketball atmosphere. You have to adore playing in that environment to help win and my males thrive on that energy.
We made the ball over in addition to missed too many free has, but my seniors increased and hit big shots; every shot made was huge.”
The Warriors were joined by a solid road following from Sibley, in which McDaniel gave his thanks.
“Our backbone was strong,” he said. “We had great support from the fans, friends and families.”
Lakeside and Amite will get together at Warrior Gymnasium Wednesday at 6:30 delaware.m. in round two.
