CORTLAND OH- Everyone in the NE8 knows how hard it is to play in Lakeview. The small gym can get awfully hot and provide a massive home court advantage for the Bulldogs. The brand of defense Lakeview plays makes it even harder. Struthers learned that the hard way on Monday night as they had to use every ounce of energy to hold of the Bulldogs 42-32.
Adrionna Rudzik led the way for Struthers busting in to double figures with 14 points. Chloe Neider scored some key points down the stretch and finished with 8. The ever reliable Faith Stellato also dropped 8 points.
Struthes has a big stretch of games coming up. It all starts on Thursday as they host Girard who just one game behind Struthers and Poland in the hunt for first place. Lakeview will try to bounce back on Thursday as they travel to Hubbard.
