Girls basketball: Second-half rallies fall short against Lakers, Raiders


Farmington couldn't come all the way back after a pair of poor first halves last week.

The Tigers spotted fifth-ranked (Class 4A) Prior Lake eight points at halftime in an eventual six-point home loss last Tuesday. It was more of the same Friday at Northfield when the host Raiders built a 10-point advantage before the break and held on for a 12-point win.
