POST FALLS — The 16U North Idaho Lakers fought hard at the fifth annual Premier Sports Invitational held June 7-9 at various Post Falls High fields, but fell in all four matchups against teams from Washington, Idaho and Montana.

The first game of the tournament against the 15U Missoula Eagles was the Lakers’ closest contest. Hayden Miller, who went 5-for-9 at the plate throughout the tourney, had an RBI single and a triple while Trevor Skon went 2-for-2 with two singles and two RBIs for North Idaho. The Eagles, however, used a fifth-run fourth inning to capture a slim 6-5 victory.

The Lakers would fall to the 16U Crew Black of Spokane (11-1), 16U Prairie Brown of Post Falls (11-3) and the Mt. Spokane Wild of Mead (10-0) during the next three games of the tournament.

The 16U North Idaho Lakers (0-6) will be back in action at home on Tuesday against Prairie.
