Lobos stay in playoff hunt with win over Cy Lakes

Saw a little bit of everything in this one and after Cy Lakes led Langham Creek 17-16 after one with Lakes guards Kendra Houston dropping 2 threes and Sierra Fuller another, however the Lobos simply went off in the second quarter and appeared to have this one under control leading by 7 at the half  31-24 holding Lakes to 7 points and closing the quarter with a Dezi White put-back


Cy Lakes wasn't done and they put together a comeback of their own, down 43-41 however Houston was simply unconscious from long range and her sixth three gave Lakes the lead to open the fourth quarter but Lakes with only score one more field goal the rest of the way as Langham Creek has a two game lead  for that final playoff spot


Langham Creek continues to do a lot of growing up and considering they start a pair of freshmen, Briley Perkins and Dyani Robinon to go along with sophomore White, one would have to wonder just how good this team will be next season with Kayla Owens back in the picture. White put her squad on her back in the final quarter, Robinson hit one of the biggest shots of her career to simply change the momentum while Perkins to play with extreme poise at the one, that's where the game starts so these last games will be tough but they've shown the won't back down
