New head coach Rich Fortier could not have scripted a better start for his Lakeland Union High School boys' basketball team Tuesday night.
Lakeland hosted Ashland to open the season and came away with a 66-27 victory.
The Thunderbirds came out of the gate and took an early lead heading into the locker room with a 33-14 advantage.
In the second half, Lakeland continued to pull away as they pushed the ball up the floor.
Throughout the first three quarters, Dylan Lerdal sparked the Thunderbirds as he hit three three pointers and found success driving the ball to the lane. He finished with 21 points in a little over three quarters of play.
Inside, Ashland had trouble keeping Lakeland forward Tom Bruckner off the boards and from scoring in the paint. Bruckner finished with 15 points.
But the rest of the Lakeland team also did their part as every player in a Thunderbird uniform scored Tuesday night to help cap the 66-27 win.
