Mid-Buchanan 76 - Lafayette 87

On paper, Class 4 Lafayette should have handled Class 2 Mid-Buchanan easily. But the Dragons are long and athletic, and were able to hang in with the Fighting Irish for much of the night, falling 87-76 on Monday night at Lafayette High School.

The Irish put up 32 first quarter points and Mid-Buchanan trailed 76-53 heading into the fourth quarter, but never gave up.

With the loss, Mid-Buchanan falls to 4-1 on the season, while Lafayette improves to 4-2.

Temperatures will be in the middle to upper 30s tomorrow. Once the fog clears, we will get to see the sun briefly before the another round of clouds build in during the evening. Highs will continue to rise through the week but will stay in the 40s for most of us. By the weekend highs will be in the 50s.
