SIBLEY – The Lakeside Warriors were at home for their first game since the Minden Holiday Classic to take on the Haughton Buccaneers for the third time this season.

The previous two meetings made for compelling contests, with the third installment holding true to form as Lakeside pulled out a win in a thriller, 48-47.

The win gives Lakeside some momentum as they head into January, a month that has the Warriors visiting Minden High and beginning an extremely difficult district schedule.

That will come later. For now, Lakeside head coach Jason Gould was happy to get a close win.

“It was a very close game,” Gould said. “It was kind of a game of quarters. We really had a horrible third quarter, but came back and outscored them 17-9 and really gritted it out. We hit four, big 3-pointers there in the fourth quarter to pull it out.”

In the rough third period Lakeside couldn’t take care of the basketball and missed some easy opportunities at the rim and from the free-throw line. But, in the final period Jalen Gould sparked the rally that led Lakeside back.

Gould scored 14 of his game-high 22 points in the second half, including nine points in the fourth quarter.

“The 3-pointers in the fourth quarter really got us going,” Gould said. “The second half for Jalen was pretty big. He really turned that game back around for us.”

Chase Mitchell added eight points for the Warriors.

Next action for Lakeside is Tuesday, Jan. 5 at Minden.
