Lakers are run down by Alexandria
After playing their third game in four days, the gas tank was on empty for the Detroit Lakes girls' basketball team, and it showed during their 76-38 loss in Alexandria Monday.
The game, which was rescheduled from an earlier date due to inclement weather, was sluggish for the Lakers, as they trailed 47-13 by halftime.
"Having the third game in four days didn't help the girls' mental and physical ability to prepare for this one," said DL head coach Mike Hoganson. "Alexandria is a very good team and a tough match up for us."
The Cardinals flew out to a 14-2 lead, and kept on pulling away from the Lakers.
Guard Angela Christianson poured in 24 points, which included four three's in the first half.
The Lakers (5-16) were led by junior post Jen Matter's 12 points.
