Two games, no problem for the Lafayette as the Irish pulled out the brooms and swept the Platte County Pirates in the boys and girls home opener on Friday night.

On the boys side, Lafayette won 77-65. D'Karee Gray led the Irish with 19 points, but Trey Washington (15), Diego Bernard (14) and Ike Book (14) also reached double figures in scoring.

On the girls side, it was a defensive struggle throughout, but the Lady Irish used a late run to ice the game, 48-36.

The Lady Irish will be back in action tomorrow at home against Rock Bridge.

We have had rain off and on this Saturday across northeast Kansas and northwest Missouri. Scattered showers will continue off and on through the evening and overnight hours but should start to clear up as we head towards the morning. Temperatures will slowly start to warm Sunday into Monday as sunshine returns and conditions start to dry out. Another cold front is headed our way Monday night and that will bring us a chance for rain and possibly some snow into Tuesday morning as the colder air surges into our area. Temperatures look to stay unseasonably cool through the rest of the next week.
