SHREVEPORT – The Lakeside Warriors were on the road to begin district play Tuesday night against the Calvary Cavaliers.

“Things were going pretty well in the first half,” Lakeside head coach Jason Gould said. “We were down by three at halftime, 24-21. In the third quarter they pressed us really hard. They’re size and quickness got to us and then they got hot. They finished the third quarter with 37 points.”
The onslaught in the third allowed no chance of a comeback and Lakeside fell to 0-1 in district play.
“We’re struggling,” Gould said. “We don’t have much depth right now, and we need more scoring. The kids keep fighting and going hard, so I’m proud of them for that.”
Lakeside will try to get back on track Friday at home against the Lakeview Gators.
Monty Willis led Lakeside with 14 points, followed by Michael Bradford with 12 points. Tyler Loften and Chase Mitchell each scored eight points.
