The Lyle-Pacelli boys basketball team had its hands full with No. 4 ranked Spring Grove (1-0 overall, 1-0 SEC) as the Lions beat LP 71-30 in Spring Grove Monday.

The Athletics (2-1 overall, 2-1 SEC) struggled against SG’s defense as they had 17 first half turnovers.

“They just completely out-played us,” LP head coach Scott Koenigs said. “They play hard man-to-man defense and they put pressure on the ball. It’s a really good program over there and they have some huge goals.”

“It’s something to learn from,” Koenigs said. “If we want to compete with a team like that, we’ve got some work to do.”

LP scoring: Noah Jiskra, 12; Braden Kocer, 7; Lee Bauer, 5; Jordan Cotter, 6; free throws: 46 percent (6-for-13)
