Terese McMahon and Amanda Beetschen each scored 12 points, as Lakes girls basketball team opened North Suburban Conference Prairie Division action with a 52-27 win over host Round Lake on Tuesday night.
Lakes (3-3) took control quickly, starting the game with a 12-0 run and finishing the first half up 31-7.
I give Round Lake a lot of credit as they battled and played hard the whole game, Eagles coach Pete Schneider said. It was a hard game to get any flow going, and we lost our intensity in the third quarter a little. Round Lake continued to apply pressure and we became very complacent. We showed much better energy in the final quarter.
This is a great group of kids that are learning to play together, Schneider added. I have depth and feel comfortable putting any of them on the floor together. We have had many different starting lineups, and it does not bother the kids. They are supporting each other whether they are on the floor or off.
Round Lake was led by Morgin Evins with a game-high 13 points.
