SIBLEY – The Lakeside Warriors were on the hunt for a much-needed district win at home Tuesday night when they hosted Jonesboro-Hodge.

It looked like they were going to get one, but in the final moments of a crazy, overtime game, Jonesboro-Hodge snuck out of Sibley with a 83-76 win.

Jonesboro-Hodge led Lakeside by 10 points at halftime after two highly-competitive quarters.

“We did not come out and play very well to me,” Lakeside boys head coach Jason Gould said. “There were a lot of turnovers early and our defense was not very good.”

Things turned around for the Warriors in the second half.

“It was much better,” Gould said. “We came out and the intensity was up. Really, in the fourth quarter we made a nice comeback. We took it into overtime, but we just ran out of gas and couldn’t overcome some mistakes.”

Jonesboro Hodge won the overtime period, 12-5.

Leading the Warriors was Monty Willis with 21 points, followed by Djimon Lard with 19 and Michael Bradford with 13. Newcomer Damion Coleman added 14 points and is still getting acclimated to the lineup.
