(Douglas Blow) Lakeside senior Damion Coleman attempts a shot during the Warriors' victory over Amite in round two of the Class 2A playoffs. Coleman and the Warriors fell to Red River Friday night, concluding a whirlwind season.

COUSHATTA – The Lakeside Warriors Cinderella run through the Class 2A playoffs ended one game shy of Marsh Madness Friday against No. 4 Red River.

The Bulldogs turned a close game into a 70-46 rout late, but no doubt felt the pressure from Marlon McDaniel’s Warriors, who finish the season with a record of 17-16.

“Red River has a great basketball program,” McDaniel said. “They made some adjustments that we were not prepared for. . .I’ll take that loss as a coach.”
