The Lawrence High Lady Lions continued their tough home schedule in 2018 hosting the #1 team in 6A Olathe East. It was a defensive struggle early with OE taking a 9-6 lead into the 2nd quarter.
Olathe extended that lead to 22 to 14 by the half. The 3rd quarter was closer to vintage Lady Lion Basketball as they battled back to cut the lead to 4 on two occasions but the top ranked Lady Hawks fought back with runs of their own to maintain control of the game.
In the 4th OE spread the floor to stall and ice the game and used their free throw skills to hold on to the victory.
