Jordan Schommer paced Pequot Lakes with 25 points as the Patriots defeated the Greenway Raiders 76-55 in a Section 7-2A matchup Friday, Feb. 8.

"The first six minutes were kind of rough," the senior guard said. "We didn't come out that strong. After that, we really picked it up on defense, and that turned into easy offense."

Despite the Patriots having a 20-point lead at the half, Greenway picked up momentum at the start of the second half, pulling to within six points. However, Pequot Lakes regained the upper hand in the final 10 minutes to cruise to a victory.

"We never stop trying," Schommer said. "We can be down for a little bit, but everyone picks each other back up and we all go do what we are supposed to."

Dylin Ackerman added 14 points for the Patriots and Vincent Miska contributed 10.
