Game Summary






Lane Tech @ Payton

Payton Defeats Lane In Hard Fought Victory

Chicago, IL




WALTER PAYTON HS-  The Payton Grizzlies got their season off to a hot start in their first game of the year. Lane went on several runs late in the game, but were not able to pull out the victory and ultimately fell short 56-48.


The Grizzlies jumped out to an early lead and held on to that lead for the majority of the game. Lane’s many attempts at cutting that lead were unsuccessfully although they kept within a 15 point margin over the course of the game.  Lane went on a late fourth quarter run looking to even up the score, but time was not on their side and they fell short. When asked about the game Grizzlies Olivia Raemisch stated “We boxed out really well, which helped us get a lot of defensive rebounds and on the offensive end to be able to get second chance points.”


With this loss Lane starts the season 1-1 with a win over Westinghouse on Tuesday and Payton gets a win in their first game of the year. Payton’s next game is Monday March 1, when they play Ogden International at Payton and Lane looks to rebound off the loss next Tuesday March 3, where they take on Northside College Prep at home.
