Lake Forest Girls Basketball Out Last Polytech

The Lake Forest girls basketball team out lasted Polytech Monday night for a 44-41 win at home. The win improves the Spartans to 4-2, while the loss drops the Panthers to 1-4.

Both teams would exchange blow for blow the first quarter and go into the second tied at 6-6. The Spartans would grab the lead though in the second quarter and find themselves up 23-154 at half time. Polytech though would battle back in the third, and drill a three at the buzzer to cut the Spartans lead to 29-27 headed into the final period. There the Panthers kept up their hot shooting, and would eventually take a 4 point lead with a minute to go. But that’s when Mya Maddox would be the hero for the Spartans. She would score two lay ups to tie the game, and the get fouled going to the cup with 7 seconds left. After missing the first, she would make the second to give Lake Forest the lead. They would steal the inbounds and add one final lay up to seal the win.
