Lake Trumps Friendswood 68-51
In a hard fought victory that was more difficult to achieve than many expected, the Clear Lake Falcons led by 11 at the end of the first quarter but the Mustangs battled back to be down 30-28 at the half. It was 49-40 after three and the Falcons put it away in the fourth but it was not an easy victory.
There were more illegal (uncalled) screens by Friendswood than I have seen in years. Too many elbows, not too punishing, but certainly uncalled for, by a team that will not make the playoffs.
For Lake Ajare Sanni had 25, Jere Maldonado had 20, and Riley Abercrombie had 14.
In other action Creek was defeated by Dickinson 79-56 so the game Friday with Creek will have the Wildcats super pumped to whip the Falcons. You will not want to miss this game.
