After a solid road victory over Fenton on Friday night, the Lapeer West girls’ basketball team parlayed the momentum into a huge win over a perennial Flint Metro League powerhouse.

From Mlive:

Clio’s 23-game Metro League winning streak has been snapped.

Lapeer West edged the Mustangs 55-51 in a battle of the conference’s only unbeaten girl’s basketball teams on Tuesday night.

“We have a lot of respect for Clio but we have confidence in ourselves too,” Lapeer West coach Bill Kinzer said. “We’re confident but we know that it’s a long road ahead but this is a step in the right direction and we’re just trying to play hard and get better every game.”

Clio dominated the Metro League last year with a perfect 16-0 record.

Keep it going girls!
