Fourth-quarter comeback allows Lakers to clip Cougars

Precision and sharp execution was the recipe it took for Indian Lake’s boys basketball team to overcome a 10-point fourth-quarter deficit Tuesday to zap visiting Kenton Ridge 48-43 in a Central Buckeye Conference crossover game.

The Lakers trailed 41-31 after three periods, but were nearly flawless in the fourth quarter. They used a 17-2 run to rally for the win.

It was the first of two meetings this week between the Cougars and Lakers. They battle again Saturday night at Springfield High School in sectional tournament action.

“Any time you can get a win, it’s good,” said Indian Lake head coach David Starr. “I think we’ve earned some respect tonight by being able to fight back and play with them. We executed and played defense for four quarters.”
