It looked like visiting Lakes was ready to run away and hide from Vernon Hills in the third quarter of their North Suburban Prairie game Friday night. But the host Cougars wouldn't allow that to happen on their senior night. They fell behind the Eagles by 15 points only to put together a 13-1 run to cut the lead to 45-42 midway through the fourth quarter. It wasn't easy, but Lakes (20-6, 11-1) managed to regroup and hold on down the stretch to capture a 54-50 victory and clinch a share of the NSC Prairie Division title with North Chicago.
