Laker Boys prevail over Hamilton

 

Lakeland overcame a shaky start and a pesky Hamilton squad to register a 65-50 NECC boys basketball victory over the visiting Marines last Friday night.

Trailing 31-29 at the half, coach Ryan Yoder’s squad put together a 16-9 surge in the third period to take a 45-40 lead. The Lakers then sealed their fifth overall win and four league triumph of the campaign with a 19-10 run in the final stanza.

Jalen King poured in 21 points and Cody Richardson sank 20 to lead the Lakeland attack. Four, three-point baskets accounted for a dozen of Richardson’s markers.

Suede Schiffli put in 13 points and R.J. Smith 12 for Hamilton.
