Olivia Lane scored 30 points for the Pequot Lakes Patriots as they defeated the St. Cloud Cathedral Crusaders 66-57 Tuesday, Feb. 12.

The Patriots had a comfortable lead early in the second half, but that lead dwindled to just six points shortly after Lane took a hand to her face, sidelining her for several minutes. However, the team managed to hang on for the victory, hitting key free throws late in the game.

"All-around, the girls played well," coach Katrina Moody said. "It was about the nine-minute where we didn't realize what we still had to play - it's hard to drag out a game with nine-minutes left - but we took too many early shots and we put them on the foul line. We made it close, but we played the last three or four minutes the right way."

Maci Martini contributed 11 points and Erika Lane added nine for the 13-9 Patriots.

"I'm glad this went a good way at the end, because it could have gone the other way," Moody said. "Hopefully, when we get to tournament time and some of the conference games we have left, when we have that same situation, we act differently."
