Detroit Lakes handed the Pequot Lakes Patriots girls' basketball team is first loss in four Mid-State Conference games with a 59-43 win by the host Lakers on Thursday, Jan. 22.

Caitie Ryan had a career-high 18 points and Haley Wiebolt contributed 11 for Pequot Lakes, which dropped to 3-1 in the conference and 10-5 overall. The Patriots were scheduled to face Park Rapids on Tuesday, Jan. 27, before playing at Sebeka on Thursday, Jan. 29.

The hot-shooting Lakers were 23-50 (46 percent) from the floor while the Patriots shot a frigid 16 for 67 (24 percent). Detroit Lakes was also 5 of 11 from 3-point range while Pequot Lakes missed all eight of its attempts.

"We were outrebounded, and made too many turnovers," said Pequot Lakes coach Jon Dale. "You can't do that against a team as good as (Detroit Lakes)."

The Lakers jumped to a 7-2 lead before the Patriots cut the deficit to 9-8 after a layup by Ryan. Pequot Lakes later trailed 17-14 after a three-point play by Haley Wiebolt. But Kyra Vagle answered with a 3-point basket for Detroit Lakes, which led 29-21 at intermission.
