Lakers fall to Adair in 2A sectional matchup

The Russell County Laker Basketball team fell to Adair County in a Kentucky 2A sectional matchup last night at Laker Gym by a score of 70-56.

The Lakers trailed by just two points at the end of the first quarter, but the Indians were able to grow their lead in the second quarter, outscoring the Lakers 20-6 to build a 16-point halftime lead.

Russell County was really never able to get back into striking distance from there, as the Lakers fell to 8-6 on the season and the Indians improved to 12-1.

The Lakers will look to get back in the win column on Monday when they go on the road to play Southwestern. Tip-off is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. CT.
