Lakers improve but Lee leads Pembine to win
space
With a little over four minutes left in the third quarter, the White Lake girls basketball team may have given Pembine a bit of a scare, tying the game up at 36-all. But that’s when the Panthers’ Kaitlin Lee made her move, scoring more than half of her game high 28 points to help give her team the 55-36 win.

Sparked by Lee, the Northern Lakes Conference’s leading scorer, the win edged Pembine to 5-2 while the Lakers dropped to 0-6.

“The girls played a nice game,” Laker coach Joe Heistad said. “They’ve made some real progress over last week.”

Down 16-7 at the end of the first quarter, White Lake closed the gap in the second, out-scoring its hosts 11-8 to cut Pembine’s advantage to 24-18 at the half.

With tough defense, the Lakers held Lee to seven points the entire first half including only two the second quarter. But when push came to shove and the Lakers tied it up, the Panther elite came alive, tallying a quick 21 points and leading her team to a double-digit victory.

“She’s a very strong player, very aggressive,” Heistad said. “We did a good job handling her in the first half but she really started going to the basket and no one could stop her.”

Gina Seidl finished with 10 for the Panthers while Amanda Hanson and Krista Lebonbard both had eight.

Kaite Gallagher was high scorer for the Lakers with 13 points followed by Martha McCarthy with 10. Rachel Lambert had five points while Stef Wickersheim scored four. Ashley Blawat and Melanie Allen both had two.

Lambert led the team on boards, collecting 15 of the team’s 44 rebounds. She also had seven assists.

“She had a pretty nice game,” Heistad said.

Despite the loss, the coach suggested that although there is still plenty to work to do, he was pleased with the performance.

“I am really happy with our team’s play,” he said. “We got worn down in the end but we got some good looks at the basket and our timing was a little better on offense. The timing is starting to come around. The girls always play hard on defense but it looked a little better.

In junior varsity action, White Lake won 28-22.

Rachel Klement was high scorer with 14 points followed by Nicole Kegley with 10. Danielle Stegall and Becca Kemp both had two.

Shakeal Seidl paced Pembine with eight.

The Lakers will host Three Lakes (3-3) on Friday.
