WATERFORD — Three consecutive offensive sets that led to three layups — and eight points — helped Waterford Our Lady of the Lakes get some breathing room in the middle of the fourth quarter on the way to a 47-35 win over Morrice in a Michigan High School Athletic Association Class D girls basketball regional championship.

The win marks the second straight regional title for the Lakers, though this title was a little more expected than last year’s run to the Breslin Center when they finished the year in the state semifinals with a losing record.

“Last year was very unexpected,” Lakes head coach Steve Robak said. “This year we had our top six girls coming back plus we added a few pieces. This was more expected this year because of the confidence we’ve been playing with.”

In the fourth quarter Morrice, a team that prides itself on its zone defense, was forced to play man-to-man and the Lakers took advantage. Twice the Lakers found a cutting Tiffany Senerius who converted a pair of and-one layups and the third possession it was senior Alex Troy making a layup to extend the Laker lead to 42-29 with 3:20 to play.

“Against their zone, we were struggling to get shots every time,” Robak said. “We were able to make enough shots against the zone to have a lead, and they had to come out and guard us. We tend to do a little bit better against that.”

Senerius, a sophomore, led Lakes with 15 points while Troy scored all 10 of her points in the second half. Senior Allison Maiorana also scored 10 points for the Lakers.

Morrice (15-8) finishes the year with a loss in the regional final for the second straight year, but head coach Kristopher Smith said getting this far in the tournament in consecutive years raises the bar for the program.

The win advances Lakes (19-4) to the state quarterfinals where the Lakers will face Kingston at Davison at 7 p.m. on Tuesday. A year ago at this stage of the tournament Lakes beat Kingston 39-36.

“It’s one of our goals (to win a regional title) and continue going on,” Robak said. “But we have other goals, and I’m really proud of our girls.”
