LAUGHLIN — The Laughlin High School girls basketball team lost games to Needles, Indian Springs and Lake Mead Academy last week.

Needles overwhelmed the Lady Cougars 54-16, shooting out to a 22-0 lead in the first quarter and cruising the rest of the way.

Marie Mills led Needles with 14 points while Jordyn Breaux had 10.

The Cougars fell 27-25 to Indian Springs. The outcome was in doubt until the end as the teams stayed close throughout. 

The Cougars had another close game against Lake Mead Academy, rallying from an 11-point deficit to make it tight before coming up short in a 39-35 verdict.

Lake Mead Academy went up 39-28 on a basket by Jaida Harris midway through the fourth quarter but the Eagles didn’t score again.

Laughlin answered with seven points — all on free throws — to make it intersted. Alexis Rios made two, Terie Santos hit one, Rios hit two more and Savannah Santillano made two more but that was as close as the Cougars could get.
