Cold shooting and turnovers cost the Locos in the second half against Park High on Friday as they fell to the Rangers 68–62.

After a close first quarter that ended with Laurel holding a slim 13–12 lead, Colter Bales followed his own tip to go three up to start the second quarter. Livingston went on a run to go up five before Bales threw down a big dunk to pull the Locos within three with 4:25 left in the half. Laurel couldn’t convert on their next two possessions and the Rangers went up 30–23 with two minutes left.

Park put on strong full court pressure and Laurel struggled to get the ball across before Wylee Schnetter drove the length of the floor to lay it in at the buzzer to pull within five at the half, 33–28.

Laurel came out strong in the second half and quickly erased the deficit and got up by five before the Locos went cold. A Ranger three with two minutes left in the quarter and they were up three again. The Locos couldn’t score again in the quarter and trailed 51–46.

Laurel went cold from the floor in the fourth and trailed 61–50 with four minutes left. Nick Pasquarello made four consecutive free throws to pull the Locos within five with 1:50 left in the game, but that was as close as they would get and dropped the contest 68–62.

Bales led the team in scoring with 20, Schnetter had 15 and Pasquarello added 10.

The boys hit the road for games against Sidney tomorrow and Miles City on Saturday.
