The Gateway Legacy Christian Academy Lions were just a bucket shy of a victory on Monday and fell 64-63 to the Lovejoy Wildcats. Gateway Legacy was given a dose of their own medicine in this game as Lovejoy apparently hadn't forgotten their loss the last time these teams played, back in January of last year.
The Lions' defeat pushed them down to 12-8. The win -- their third in a row -- raised the Wildcats' record to 18-10.
The Lions are on the road again Friday and play against Granite City. If you head out to watch the game, expect to stay the whole 32 minutes: the MaxPreps rankings predict a close matchup. As for Lovejoy, they will face off against Cairo on Saturday. Lovejoy won't have the home-court advantage, but they do enjoy an advantage in the MaxPreps rankings.
