ST. MARIES — After a sluggish start offensively, St. Maries coach Bryan Chase looked to his bench to ignite the Lumberjacks on Thursday night.

Sophomore guard Greyson Sands changed things in a hurry.

Sands scored nine of his game-high 20 points in the first quarter, finishing 8 of 9 shooting as the Lumberjacks beat the Lakeside Knights 51-40, ending the Knights’ 25-game win streak.

“Greyson came in and was just on fire tonight,” St. Maries coach Bryan Chase said. “Lakeside’s as fast as any other team we’ve seen, so we worked on our transition defense and getting back on defense all week, and it was definitely the key tonight.”

Kenyon Spotted Horse scored 15 points, Day Day Higgins 11 points for Lakeside (1-1). The Knights won the state 1A Division II championship in March, finishing with a 24-0 record.

“We knew how good they were and how fast they can get up and down the court,” Chase said. “We just wanted to slow them down and find a way. Our depth was really a key for us tonight.”

Tristan Gentry had six points and five rebounds and Colby Renner five rebounds for St. Maries (3-0), which travels to Priest River on Wednesday. The game, previously scheduled for Monday, was moved due to the Spartans being exposed to COVID during a game last Saturday.

Lakeside travels to Timberlake on Saturday.
