The Lakeland College women's basketball team had its six-game winning streak snapped on Monday night, losing 56-53 to visiting Northern Athletics Conference North division foe Maranatha Baptist Bible College.
The Muskies (9-5, 4-4 NAC) were sluggish from the start and never found a rhythm at either end of the court as they were outplayed by the Crusaders.
Maranatha (8-5, 3-5 NAC) led for much of the first half, taking their largest lead, 17-10, at the 10:24 mark. The Muskies were able to fight back and take a 25-24 lead into the break. In the half, the Crusaders outscored Lakeland 16-8 in the paint and out-rebounded the Muskies, 24-20.

Sophomore Jessica Genke (Kiel, Wis.) led the Muskies with six first-half points while junior Dana Henrichs (Fall Creek, Wis.) had a team-high seven rebounds.
Lakeland seemed to gain some control in the second half, stretching their lead to 11, 50-39, with 7:46 left in the game. However, the Crusaders got hot from behind the arc and went on a 12-0 run to take a 51-50 lead at the 3:06 mark. After trading baskets, an Autumn Peotter 3-pointer with 9.1 seconds left gave the Crusaders the 3-point victory.
