Battling Lancers beaten


KENOSHA — Those not among the large and boisterous crowd at Madrigrano Gymnasium will simply dismiss Saturday night’s Metro Classic Conference showdown as a lopsided affair.

The final score doesn’t tell the whole story, however.

Exhibiting 32 minutes of toughness, hustle and heart, the undersized Lancers were dealt a 69-36 defeat by three-time defending WIAA Division-4 state champion Whitefish Bay Dominican in a battle between the league’s co-leaders. In eight conference games this season, Dominican has posted an average margin of victory of 36.3 points.
