Lorimer, who averages nearly 20 points per game, picked up two fouls in the game’s first two minutes. She went to the bench and never returned.

“Evie’s pretty beat up,” said coach Rich Hyde, whose team is now 12-1 overall and 7-1 in Lakes Eight Conference action. “She got beat up pretty good in the Fremont game on Friday, and she played through it. She was working hard, but she got in foul trouble early, and we just rested her.”

The Lakers also played without starting guard Morgan Gagnon, who was out sick.

Several players stepped up for the Lakers, including Molly Cooke, who came off the bench to score eight points.

“We got great help coming off the bench,” Hyde said. “Molly Cooke had a fantastic game. Molly Miedema is one of our defensive stoppers, and she did a great job, got a couple steals, then Jewel Wiersma and Megan VanDeWeg really played well in the first half as we had some foul trouble.”

PEKEL HELPS TROJANS NIP PACKERS

Debbie Pekel may have made only one field goal for Fruitport’s varsity girls basketball team on Tuesday, but there wasn’t a more important shot for the Trojans all evening.

Pekel scored with just 4 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter at Fruitport High School, helping the Trojans complete a season sweep of Fremont, 29-28.
