The North Tahoe boys and girls begin Northern Division III league play at Battle Mountain and West Wendover on Friday and Saturday. The Laker boys return home to host ROP on Jan. 2 and Yerington on Jan. 3.

The North Tahoe boys basketball team ran its win streak to six games with a 64-47 nonleague win over visiting Loyalton on Tuesday.

The Lakers got off to a slow start, falling behind 16-7 after one quarter. North Tahoe bounced back in the second quarter, however, and cut the deficit to three points, 31-28, by the half.

“We started out like we didn’t know what we were doing,” said North Tahoe coach Frank Wright. “But then we figured it out.”

North Tahoe took control after the half, outscoring the visitors 16-3 in the third quarter and 20-13 in the fourth to extend the lead to the final margin.

“We still have too many turnovers, but we’ll work on that,” Wright said.

Sophomore guard Trent Lingruen led the Lakers with 16 points. Senior forward Mitchell Myers scored 15, Juan Estrada had 14, Nick Joslin seven and Andy Morgan five.

Results and stats from the girls game were not available.
