Lakota attempts late-game comeback, fall to Warwick, 54-52

Lakota Guard Jaxon Baumgarn (Left, White) Goes For The Steal Against Warwick On Feb.  25.

DEVILS LAKE – A string of substitutions late in the fourth quarter did not dissuade the Lakota Raiders in the slightest. If anything, it encouraged them. With a thin bench, the Raiders were looking to lay down a trap against the Warwick Warriors in an attempt to go up late in the opening round of the Class B – District 7 Boys’ Basketball Tournament at Devils Lake Sportscenter Friday evening.

While the Raiders gave it a good crack, a costly miss from the line, coupled with a baseline turnover, inevitably proved to be their downfall as they faltered to Warwick, 54-52, on Feb. 25.

The loss snaps Lakota’s four-game winning streak, dating back to Feb. 10. The loss additionally places the Raiders on the consolation side of the district bracket. The Raiders will face off against Benson County to determine who moves over to the Region 4 placement round on Feb. 28.
