Vahey leads Lakeland to win over Sandpoint

Print Article

SANDPOINT — Dylan Vahey hit three 3-pointers en route to an 18-point, eight-rebound night, leading the Hawks past the Bulldogs 53-46 in a 4A Inland Empire League boys hoops clash Thursday night at Les Rogers Court.

The Hawks (8-13, 3-1 4A IEL) led 24-14 at half before the Bulldogs, who suited up only eight players, scrapped their way back into the game. Kaden Davis added 10 points and four assists and Josiah Halland blocked four shots for the Hawks, who will clinch the No. 1 seed if Sandpoint wins at Moscow on Saturday. If Moscow wins, the Bears will be the top seed.

“It was a good ball game. Sandpoint has no quit in them, they battled right to the end. It could have gone either way,” said Hawks head coach Dave Stockwell. “I’m pleased with Dylan, he handled himself well, got to the rim.”

Robbie Johnson had 16 points to lead the Bulldogs (3-16, 0-3 4A IEL).

Lakeland returns to action next week at the 4A Region 1 tournament at North Idaho College, on Tuesday if the Hawks are the No. 2 seed, on Thursday if they are the No. 1 seed.
