A scrappy, but undersized, Grovetown High team couldn’t overcome Friday the big men of Lakeside.
The Panthers immediately took the lead from the Warriors on Grovetown’s home court and never surrendered it in the 60-52 contest.
It was the second lost this season Grovetown (2-4) suffered at the hands of Lakeside (4-2). They first met in the season opener last month in a 55-44 game.
The matchup was dominated by Panthers senior Chris Hall, who put up 17 points on the Warriors.
Six of those points came in the first period on a jumper, a lay-up following a steal and another he drove in through traffic.
Still, Grovetown managed to keep it close at the end of the first, down just by two.
The gap widened by the end of the half with Lakeside ahead 31-22.
Then that gap started to close early in the second half, helped by Grovetown sophomore Shalom Alvarez, who scored 12 in just the third period. But Alvarez’s 21-point game just wasn’t enough.
The Warriors rallied in the fourth period; scoring eight points in a row while keeping Lakeside away from the basket for about five minutes.
In the end though, it wasn’t enough as Hall capped the game with a final free throw with just a second left.
The Grovetown ladies fared better with a 41-36 win over the Panthers.
Like the boys, the girls first met in the season opener, where Grovetown (5-2) beat Lakeside (2-3) 57-41 in a non-region match.
Friday’s game might have been as equally an impressive win as the first contest for the Warriors had they managed to shoot well from the free-throw line. They put away just 10 points in 27 attempts.
The Panthers kept it close in the first half, down by just one before they headed to their locker room.
At the end of the third, Lakeside only had to make up six points.
Grovetown’s play got sloppy in the fourth period with multiple bad passes, including one from sophomore Heaven Garey that went out of bounds when she tried to dish the ball off to an umpire.
Lakeside took advantage, closing the gap to just three points with two minutes left on the clock.
But the Warriors regained their composure and played solid defense to stop Lakeside from again reaching the basket.
Oddly, it was a pair of hit free throws from Grovetown senior Tye Sewell that iced the game.
