LMS girls' A team dealt first loss of season

The Laconia Middle School girls' A basketball team earned a win and suffered its first loss of the season in recent games.
The win came on January 15 when Laconia traveled to Winnisquam where the score was 54-20 at the end of regulation. Leading scorers for Laconia were Amelia Clairmont, with 16 points, Jerra Kirk scored seven, while Heled Tautkus and Cierra LaGarde each scored six. Coach Chick Tautkus praised "a solid team effort" and "defensive pressure" in the victory.
Two days later, Laconia hosted Merrimack Valley. The visitors were victorious, playing Laconia to a 33 to 39 finish.
Laconia played Merrimack Valley closely, with offense again led by Amelia Clairmont and Jerra Kirk and a strong defensive effort. At the end of three quarters, Laconia trailed Merrimack Valley by only one point. However, according to Tautkus, "fourth quarter turnovers proved costly," and allowed the visitors to pull away.
The girls look to bounce back at 4 p.m. on Tuesday when Barnstead comes to LMS.
