LYMAN – Last Friday, the Lyman Eagles took a tough loss when they fell hard to the Lander Tigers.

Having pulled off an expected win against Kemmerer earlier in the week, the Lyman boys came into a larger challenge against Lander with several crucial players fighting illnesses. The Lander boys came out strong and took an early lead over the Eagles. Though the Eagles struggled hard in the fourth quarter, it simply wasn’t enough to breach the gap they had created in earlier quarters. The Eagles fell 46-62 to the Tigers.

Kyle Stokes led the team in scoring against Kemmerer with 18. Cisco Taylor trailed closely behind with 17, and Dalton Schofield added 15. Taylor also contributed eight assists and six steals in the game, and led the team in rebounding, with seven.

Taylor was a driving force for the Eagles in the game against Lander, tacking up a total of 20 points, nine steals and four assists. Tyson Gillies led the team at gathering up rebounds, grabbing a total of 12. He was followed by Schofield with six, and Skyler Walker with five.

“We started out slow,” Schofield said about the tough loss to Lander, “But during the fourth quarter, we showed some heart and teamwork and tried for a comeback.”
