Junior varsity girls roll to 52-25 victory
Leavenworth Lansing High's ferocious full-court trap was too much for Immaculata as LHS rolled to a 52-25 victory in junior varsity girls basketball Tuesday night at Immac.
The Raiders hung around early and trailed 12-9 after the first quarter, but the Lions turned up the pressure defensively in the second quarter. They also executed their offense better and knocked down open shots. Katelyn Griffen hit a pair of three-pointers in the quarter as the Lions built a 22-13 lead by halftime.
As good as the Lions were in the second quarter, they were just getting started. They forced 15 turnovers in the third quarter and exploded on a 21-3 run. Abbey Lozenski scored seven points during that run, and Amy Briggs and Kari Kelly scored four apiece. Kelly added five more points in the fourth quarter as LHS extended its lead to 30 points and forced the mercy-rule continuous clock.
Griffen led all scorers with 14 points, Kelly had nine, Lozenski had eight and Cassandra Murphy added six for LHS.
Lansing now is 10-5 this season. It closes out its season at 4:30 p.m. today at home against Bonner Springs.
