Bowe Bytes: "I felt we played well. We executed both the offensive and defensive game plans and had pretty good energy for most of the game. It was a very good crowd for both games which really helped. This was just a really good feeling today and it fires you up to want more. We can not become complacent next week though. We need to come in locked and ready to take care of business."
Next up: The Lakers will travel to Piqua next Saturday (2/29) to take on the Edison State Chargers. This will be their final regular season game of the season. Game time is scheduled for 3pm.
