Lakers’ dig hole against DMACC

By Staff | Feb 28, 2008

BOONE — The Iowa Lakes women’s basketball team nearly rallied all the way from a 19-point first half deficit before falling to Des Moines Area Community College 66-55 on Wednesday.

The Lakers trailed DMACC 41-22 after the first 20 minutes of play.

“They went on a run, the last 5-6 minutes of the first half and ended up ahead 21-22 early in the second half,” said Iowa Lakes coach Brian Radtke. “Then we started playing better. A couple girls played the whole second half and didn’t let them do what they did in the first half.”

The coach said his team went on a 12-0 run at one point to cut the lead to 55-43.

“We did get it down to six with about two minutes left, then it went back up when we fouled them and they made their free throws,” he said. “We just dug a hole we couldn’t get out of.”

The Lakers were led by Samantha Boje with 15 points while Karissa Kramer had 12 points and six steals. Shanda Novak chipped in 10 points along with six rebounds. All three players had two assists.

Iowa Lakes ends the season at 19-10 and 10-8.

The Lakers postseason begins Tuesday.
