Strong defense propels Lakers past Grimes

Fueled by this, Skaneateles took over late in the second quarter, closing the half on a 16-5 run, even though Roberts was on the bench with two fouls. Between Rice's drives to the basket and timely shots from Atkinson, the Lakers slowly buried the Cobras, providing the exclamation point when O'Donnell banked in a 3-pointer off the glass at the buzzer to make it 39-23 at the break.

Grimes would never threaten in the second half, Stone getting all of his four points from free throws and none of his Cobra teammates able to make up for his struggles.

Though it was the third time Skaneateles had beaten Grimes this season, it was sweeter here because it came on the same court, and in the same round, where the Cobras had beaten the Lakers in double overtime 12 months ago.
