Lake Region Squeaks By Northfield 44-40

ORLEANS-It wasn't easy, and at times the game looked to be doubt, but the Lady Rangers were able to strap on their work boots, dig deep and grind out a 44-40 win over the Northfield Marauders."Overall, we had a game plan, but our perimeter shooting wasn't what it was the last couple of outings, so we had to find some other places to get points," said LRU coach Mark Tinker. "It was by hook or by crook, but we got the offense when we needed it and our defense created some chances for us."Drew Neal led all scorers with 26 points, while McMullen had a team-high 20 for Northfield.The win moves Lake Region to 15-2, while Northfield moves to 5-13.Next up is a rematch with BFA Fairfax on Thursday in Fairfax at 7:30.For the Full Story, see Wednesday's Express on 2-20-12!
