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.

This evening, a few spotty storms are moving through the area. Expect these to fizzle out after sunset as temperatures will be in the 70s and 80s. Tonight, skies should stay mostly cloudy with temperatures falling into the mid 60s.
