T he Negaunee Miners (5-0) defeated the L’Anse Purple Hornets (3-2) 67-33 Tuesday night in Negaunee. The Miners were led by MacKenzie Karki with 13 points, along with three other players in double figures.
L’Anse was led by Josie Rice with 12 points.
L’Anse head coach Scott Lloyd was disappointed in his team’s effort, so much so, that he decided to read the newspaper on the bench during the second half. Lloyd was upset in the way his team played, and felt that he needed to send a message about his team not meeting its potential.
Negaunee travels to Ishpeming on Thursday, and L’Anse visits Calumet on the same night.
