The game started slowly to begin with and after the first quarter of play the score was only 7-3. Medical Lake couldn’t pull the offense together through the game, and didn’t score over ten points in any one quarter during the game.

Coming up short on free throws also left a lot of unscored points on the table as the Cardinals went 4 of 13 on foul shots for the night.

Lakeside took off in the second quarter, and never looked back behind the scoring of Macy Cummings and Sophia Stadler. Ayanna Tobeck also contributed for the Eagles with a couple of three pointers and nine points on the night. Lakeside was also able to move the ball effectively and find open shots.
