Feb. 7, 2012 —
At 17-1, the Lady Falcons are currently riding a six-game winning streak following its win on the road Saturday against Trinity Christian Academy, 47-18.
The girls from Lakeside Christian Academy simply know how to win, and win big, defeating 15 of its 18 opponents by no fewer than 20-plus points.
Led by a balanced scoring effort, the Lady Falcons jumped out to an early 13-5 lead at the end of the first period, followed by a difficult second quarter in which they only managed eight points.
Once the third period began, Lakeside’s offensive strength flexed its muscles, scoring 21 points, serving as the separation point to make way for another dominant performance for the Lady Falcons.
To go along with its rejuvenated offensive play, Lakeside once again looked to its defense to help bring forth the victory, by holding TCA to a mere four points in the third quarter.
Behind sharp offensive play on the fast break, and a tough presence down low from senior center Morgan Ravenscraft, Lakeside’s girls built a significant lead of 38-11 heading into the final period.
While LCA did not light up the scoreboards in the final period, the strong third quarter, along with its smothering defensive prowess, proved to be enough to mark another win in the record books for the Lady Falcons.
Sharing the wealth was the template for Saturday’s success, with Whitlea Wall and Ally McGhee both reaching double-figures for LCA, scoring 13 and 11, respectively. Ravenscraft also provided a tough post presence for her team battling for eight, while Haley Skidmore also provided a helping hand with seven.
After press time Lakeside took on a visiting Blue Grass squad last night for one of its two home games remaining on the schedule, before it heads into postseason play on Feb. 23.
