Lake Shore girls top Iroquois in OT

OBSERVER Staff Report

ANGOLA — The Lake Shore Eagles girls basketball team won their home opener on Tuesday for their first win of the season, beating Iroquois in overtime by a score of 66-64.

The Lady Eagles were led by Sophie Snyder who scored a game high 25 points to go along with seven rebounds and six steals.

After coming out flat, the Eagles found themselves behind 15-3 after the first quarter. But a solid effort in the second got Lake Shore back into the game, and from there an even battle led to a thrilling overtime finish.

“We came out rusty,” said Lake Shore head coach Danielle Arnone. “We settled down in the second quarter and hit some shots and we were pretty even from there. I’m proud of the girls to come back in that situation they were resilient.”

Lani Cornfield scored 18 points while adding ten assists, eight steals and seven rebounds. Shawni Cornfield pitched in 16 points and nine rebounds of her own.

Lake Shore (1-0) will return to action Thursday when they face Pioneer.
