On Jan. 21, the Freshman Boys Basketball team team took on cross town rivals, La Costa Canyon. The Lancers, led by coach Brian Fulk, fought hard but were unable to defeat the Mavericks.

LCC came out strong and took a quick lead. However, after a three pointer and two free shots by James Chambers, the Lancers took the lead.

Unfortunately, this did not last long after the Lancers fouled the Mavericks multiple times allowing LCC to catch up. The fouls, by both the Mavs and Lancers, throughout the game, led to many freethrows and added competition. To end the half, the Lancers trailed by four with a score of 22-26.

The entire game was back and forth; as LCC would score, the Lancers would come back. At one point, LCC had an immense lead over the Lancers. However, the Lancers rallied in the end and many players like Cameron Lawrence and Grant Yasukochi, sank a couple three pointers.

In the end, the Mavericks came out on top with a score of 42-49. Despite the loss, the Lancers are taking this game as a learning experience both offensively and defensively.

“We did alright but did not make our shots,” Chambers said. ” We need to work on playing better defense”

Other players also agreed that their shooting was not up to par in this game and this led to their defeat.

“We were okay but we need to work on shooting and winning” Lawrence said.

Overall, the Lancers fought hard against our rivals and never gave up. The boys frosh team will be playing again on Jan. 28 at Rancho Buena Vista, so go out and support!
