SIBLEY – The 23rd Annual Don Stahl Memorial Tournament wrapped up over the weekend, with a pair of Webster Parish teams taking runner-up finishes in both the boys and girls final.

The Lakeside Warriors entered the finals thanks to a 13-point win over the Doyline Panthers Friday night, but had less luck against Byrd in the finals, falling to the Yellow Jackets in a phenomenal basketball game, 71-63.

“It was a very, very good game,” Lakeside head coach Jason Gould said. “We went toe-to-toe with them.”

Lakeside used the 3-ball early on to get themselves and the crowd going, jumping out to a 19-16 first quarter lead. The Warriors got a pair of triples from point guard Tyreke Loftin, followed by a deep ball from Jason Gould to seize the early lead.

Byrd outscored Lakeside by four in the second quarter to take a 1-point halftime lead, and the two teams tied in the third quarter to keep the slim-margin in favor of the Yellow Jackets.

In the fourth quarter, with 3 minutes left in the game, Byrd made their move.

“We had some turnovers against their press and they made some big shots,” Gould said. “Probably for the last 3 minutes, we were just trying to play catch-up and couldn’t do it, but it was a great game and we had a great crowd.”

Chase Mitchell led the Warriors with 17 points, followed by Jalen Gould with 13 points on 3, 3-pointers. Damian Coleman and Michael Bradford each pitched in with 12 points for Lakeside.

The Warriors will be back on the court, Tuesday at home against North DeSoto, starting at 4:30 p.m. with the junior varsity games.

Lakeside’s Chase Mitchell and Jalen Gould each earned all-tournament honors for the Warriors.
