The Des-Lacs-Burlington Lakers put down the Glenburn Panthers during their semi-final district tourament match last night with a final score of 3-0. The finalized set scores were 25-12, 25-12 and 25-20.

Before the game started, the Lakers were warming up on the court and the Panthers could be heard hyping themselves and each other up in the locker room. Their voices were still audible over the chatter of the crowd.

Tensions were high as the match began and it was almost as if it could have been cut with a knife. A lot of people in the crowd were sitting on the edges of their seats as the ball rallied from on team to the other.

The first two sets were dominated by the Lakers. However, that didn’t discourage the Panthers one bit. They kept fighting and gave the DLB girls a run for their money.

The third set went just about point for point in the beginning until DLB pulled away with a four point lead. Slowly but surely, Glenburn caught up.

With a showing score of 24-21, the Lakers were watching the ball like hawks, which earned them the final point and moved them to the District 12 finals to play against the Our Redeemer’s Christian School Knights.

The game between DLB and ORCS will be played on Monday night at 7 p.m. in Des Lacs.

Glenburn is scheduled to play against Berthold on Monday at 7 p.m. in Glenburn.
