Another fast first half start (22 - 1) propelled the Lady Sachems to the victory over a Lakes Region opponent. Team basketball was again evident as Laconia shared the ball equally.
Coach Tautkus and his team are looking forward to the week, as they prepare to play Gilford and a very good Merrimack Valley team.
