The Lake Roosevelt Raiders beat both Manson and Bridgeport last week to hold onto their top spot in the league, but then lost to Okanogan Tuesday night.

LR defeated Manson 55-29 in Coulee Dam Jan. 14.

Sam Wapato led the Raiders with 17 points, followed by Soarin' Marchand and Hunter Whitelaw, who scored 10 each.

The Raiders then traveled to Bridgeport Friday, where they won 84-35.

Tyler Jordan was LR's leading scorer there with 19 points, followed by Marchand with 15, and CJ Saxon with 11.

As of Monday, the Raiders boasted a win-loss record of  9-0 in the Central Washington 2B league, 11-1 overall. 

Brewster is right there with them at 9-1, 12-2. 

Yesterday, on Jan. 21, the Raiders played a neck-and-neck game against the Okanogan Bulldogs.

The game was tied 26-26 at the half.

With the lead going back and forth, the Raiders led 52-51 and took possession with 20 seconds left on the clock.

The Raiders called timeout, and the Bulldogs stole the ball back after the Raider inbound. The Bulldogs took the lead, and the Raiders were unable to answer in the final, tense seconds of the game for a final score of 53-52 Okanogan.

The Raiders are scheduled to host the Oroville Hornets Friday at 7:30 p.m., then Bridgeport on Monday, also at 7:30.

An away game against Tonasket is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 28.
