DL girls lead for the entirety at Staples-Motley
An 11-0 run to start the game created plenty of cushion as Detroit Lakes led for the entirety in a 67-53 Mid-State Conference girls basketball victory at Staples-Motley Friday night.
The Lakers led by as many as 16 points in the first half at 36-20 on a pair of free throws by Lauryn Manning.
Manning was perfect from the stripe making 12 of 12 attempts in the game.
A late three-pointer by the Cardinals’ Kaitlyn Smith pulled Staples-Motley to within eight points at halftime trailing 38-30.
The Lakers continued to hold the Cardinals at bay despite Manning and Bre Price being in foul trouble.
The Cardinals pulled to within seven points at 55-48 with two minutes to play but the Lakers sealed the win with a 12-5 run.
Price led all scorers with 25 points. Manning and Lauren Tschider had 14 and 11 points, respectively.
The Cardinals fall to 2-19 overall and 0-10 in the Mid-State. DL improved to 5-19 and 2-6 in the conference. The Lakers travel to Aitkin (16-8, 4-4) Tuesday, Feb. 20.
