Warriors, L-Cats fall in nonconference games

December 2, 2018

LAKE MILLS — Cameron Paske scored 10 points, including two three-point plays in a two-minute span in the second half, but the Lakeside Lutheran boys basketball team fell to visiting Elkhorn 69-50 in a nonconference game on Friday.

Senior forward Jack Monis finished with 12 points and junior guard Carter Schneider scored 10 for Lakeside (1-1).

For Elkhorn (2-0), Nick Brown notched a game-high 14 points and Chance Larson finished with 12.

Lakeside played Elkhorn, a team that beat Verona on the road earlier in the week, a season ago and knew they had an experienced group.

“We played them last year and knew they had four starters returning,” Lakeside head coach Kirk DeNoyer said. “They have good guard play and made us shoot outside shots that we weren’t able to convert.”

Elkhorn kept Lakeside’s leader scorer from a season ago Will DeNoyer scoreless for the game.

“We got the ball inside in the second half and they were collapsing on our post players,” coach DeNoyer said. “We have to have everything going. We didn’t shoot the ball well tonight.”

Lakeside hosts Edgewood on Tuesday night.

Racine St. Catherine’s 72, Lake Mills 43

RACINE — Traveling to face a formidable team in the state early in the season is seldom an easy task.

The Lake Mills boys basketball team found this to be true as they fell to host Racine St. Catherine’s 72-43 in a nonconference game on Friday.

Lake Mills (1-1) was led in scoring by Matt Johnson who had 15 points, which included three 3-pointers, and J.T. Toepfer who tallied 13.

The L-Cats made a strong push late in the first half with a 7-0 run but St. Catherine’s came out of the gates strong after halftime to put the game nearly out of reach.

“We knew they were one of the best teams in the state,” Lake Mills head coach Steve Hicklin said. “They return quite a few players from last year. We wanted a challenge early on to see where we’re at and where we need to go.”

St. Catherine’s disrupted Lake Mills’ ball movement and forced 22 turnovers with in-your-face defense throughout the game.

“They are one of the best defensive teams I have seen,” Hicklin said. “Every time you catch the ball there is someone there in your stomach ... That’s a credit to the way they were able to take us out of our ball movement which is how we like to create shots.”

For St. Catherine’s (1-0), Kaman McGee poured 16 first-half points and finished with 25. Azarien Stephens and Tyrese Hunter scored 14 points apiece.

Lake Mills will host Fort Atkinson on Tuesday.
