Lakeside advances to Invitational final with win over Bryant
The frustrations of the Bryant Lady Hornets freshman team began early. After Destiny Martin made a steal and drove for a layup to start the night’s scoring against the Hot Springs Lakeside Junior Lady Rams, the Lady Hornets forced seven more turnovers in the first quarter, including three more steals by Martin.
But they only managed to score 2 points in the period. Lakeside effectively utilized screens and back-cuts off the ball to get point-blank shots and the Lady Hornets struggled to stop them. Bryant head coach Nathan Castaldi used timeouts to explain what his team needed to do to counter and used substitutions as well but Lakeside ran out to a 16-2 lead on the way to a 36-20 victory.
