Lady Lakers vs Moody Bible Institute
The Lady Lakers lost a hard fought road game in Chicago to the Moody Bible Institute Lady Archers 90 to 75. The score certainly was not indicative of how close the game really was. The Lady Lakers down by 10 at the half and as many as 15 in the second half got within 3 points with approximately 6:30 left in the game. Unfortunately after getting within 3 points, the Lady Lakers came down the court and got 2 great shots but the ball would not drop through the hoop. After some very good defense from both teams, the Lady Archers came down and scored twice boosting their lead to seven point lead with less than 4 minutes to go in the game. We were forced to press them to try and force a turnover. They took care of the ball very well and we had to foul. Moody was red hot from the free throw line hitting 18 out of 19 free throws down the stretch to seal the victory. I was extremely proud of our players. They played extremely well and fought very hard to get the game within 3 points from a double digit deficit. If we could have gotten the lead the results could have been very different. The loss dropped the young Lady Lakers to a 4 and 4 record.
Raelyn Woock had an outstanding game leading the Lady Lakers with 14 points, 8 rebounds, 3 assist and 3 steals. Also in double digets were Shanice Wilson and Lyndsay Holcshbach notching 11 points each. The Lady Lakers will play their last game before Christmas break on Monday, December 16 with the tip off time at 7:00 pm. against Mount Mary of Milwaukee, a NCAA Division III team. The game will be at the UW Manitowoc gym. Come out and watch the exciting Lady Lakers Baskeball.
