Shorthanded Lakers fall short against Fernley

Staff reports

The North Tahoe High boys basketball team lost its first game of the new year, 65-60, at Fernley on Wednesday.

“They are much improved from the past few seasons,” Lakers head coach David Hansen said of the Vaqueros.

For various reasons North Tahoe (0-4, 4-10) had only six players suited out for the game, Hansen said.

“Fernley was very intelligent for the fact that they played all 12 of their guys,” Hansen said. “Our kids just kind of ran out of gas.”

Senior Michael Forte led the Lakers in scoring with 30 points, and Spencer Marple scored 18.

North Tahoe plays at Spring Creek on Friday before traveling to face Lowry on Saturday.
