RIVER FOREST — The Lake Land women’s basketball team defeated Triton College 82-69 Friday in a non-conference game.
Avery Jackson, a Mattoon graduate, led the Lakers with 24 points. Gabrielle Staub grabbed nine rebounds.
“We had a great first half,” said Lake Land coach Dave Johnson. “We didn’t quite have the same level of intensity in the second half and let them cut that margin.
"Avery Jackson had an outstanding game with 24 points, five rebounds and four assists.”
Lake Land is now 2-1 and plays Moraine Valley at 1 p.m. Saturday in River Forest.
