Tucker Geiger paced Keene with 10 points and 14 rebounds. Taylor Geiger chipped in eight points.

Indian Lake/Long Lake held a 22-14 lead at the half and sealed the win from the foul line in the second half.

“Both teams played well defensively, and we were down by eight at the half,” Keene coach Brian La Vallee said. “We had to foul in the fourth quarter to try and get back in it.

“They had equal scoring and played a nice all-around game. We held Meg Smith, who made five free throws, without a field goal. She’s usually a high scorer for them. But they had other players who were able to score.”
