COEUR d’ALENE — Parker Childs led Sandpoint with 18 points as the Bulldogs fell to the Timberwolves at Lake City High Friday night.

Sandpoint kept Lake City within an 8 to 12 point reach for the majority of the game, but the Timberwolves got hot in the fourth quarter and took home the 23-point victory.

“Lake City is a pretty good team and I think everyone would acknowledge that,” head coach Brian Childs said. “What we wanted to do tonight was walk away feeling good about where we're at heading into the district tournament. Overall, I was pleased with our effort. We played Lake City pretty tough through three quarters. I feel pretty good about our competitiveness and I like where we are headed with districts coming up.”

Emerik Jones added 14 points, Derrick Chamberlain 12, for the Bulldogs.

Resse Strawn led the Timberwolves with 24 points.

Sandpoint (9-11) will travel to Lakeland for the 4A District 1-2 play-in game set to be held Monday, Feb. 19.
