LAKE PLACID — The Saranac Lake girls basketball team scored 10 points in the third quarter Thursday night on the way to a 35-22 victory over Lake Placid.

“I thought we shared the basketball well tonight, with all but two of our players getting baskets,” Saranac Lake coach Chad LaDue said. “It was a good team win, and we need to keep getting better as we start league play (Friday) vs. Northern Adirondack at home.”

Kelsey Leeret led Saranac Lake in scoring with 10 points, six of which came on 3-pointers. Mecalyn Sousa made one 3-pointer and scored seven points, Stevens finished with six points and Alex LaDue hit for four.

Saranac Lake improved to 2-0 with the victory.
