The Lakers fall to 5-8 overall and 4-6 in the CBC, while the Arrows move to 8-7, 5-5.

Indian Lake took the lead in the bottom of the second. Ashley Franks had a sacrifice bunt that scored Taylor Drake to put the Lakers up 1-0.

That score would hold up until the top of the seventh when Tecumseh piled up five runs to take a 5-1 lead.

The Lakers could only score one run in the bottom of the frame.

Offensively for Indian Lake, Drake had two hits and an RBI, Franks had an RBI and Kayla Thieman had a triple.
