Lake Placid 52, Westport 21

Lake Placid 49, Wells 41
Lake Placid forwards Jacob Daniels and Evan Bickford combined for 23 points and controlled the backboards just enough to power the Blue Bombers to a hard-fought 49-41 win over Wells on Jan. 6.
The Bombers’ aggressive defense throughout the game was a mixed blessing: Lake Placid pressed effectively, but also went over the team foul limit early in the fourth quarter, had two starters foul out, and gave Wells 17 shots from the charity stripe in the final stanza. The Indians were able to connect on just seven of those attempts, however, allowing Lake Placid to hold on for the win.
The Indians’ Jake Earley led all scorers with 18 points in the game, including eight from the foul line. Logan Stephenson tallied 11 for the Bombers.
