HOT SPRINGS, Ark. – White Hall’s girls gave Lakeside a scare Tuesday night at the Lakeside Athletic Complex. The Lady Rams outscored their visitors 28-13 in the middle quarters en route to a 50-37 win over the Lady Dawgs.
Lakeside remains alone in second place of the 5A South race behind Lake Hamilton.
“I thought we were a little bit flat at the start,” said winning coach Chris Brock. “Changing defense (to a zone) in the second quarter helped us. We went back to man in the second half and played better, like we have all year.
White Hall guards were a pain for Rams
“White Hall was mixing up different traps against us. When we lined up right, we attacked it and usually got something good off it. White Hall is a gritty team. They’ve got two good guards.”
Those two guards, Camille Wallace and Lilly Hood, had the Lady Dawgs leading at the end of the first quarter, 13-12.
The bad news for the Lady Dawgs came in the form of Ronni Formby and Adachi Igbokidi. Formby scored 12 of her 17 points in the first two quarters. Igbokidi also contributed 17 points, allowing Lakeside to capture a 24-18 lead at intermission.
Lady Rams never trailed in second half
The Lady Rams never trailed in the second half, but at the same time couldn’t pull away from White Hall. Hood swished three 3-pointers and led the Lady Dawgs with 16 points. Wallace added 14 points.
Lakeside faces an even tougher challenge Friday night when the Rams visit Sheridan.
