The opening to the 2012-13 girls basketball season was a thriller even if it did not go the way the Lakeland Union High School Thunderbirds wanted it to.
Lakeland traveled to the Wausau East and took on the Lumberjacks to open the campaign and the game came down to the wire with East earning a 34-33 victory on a free throw with less than 10 seconds to play in the game.
Wausau East led throughout the game jumping to an early lead and pushing that advantage to nine points at halftime.
But in the second half, Lakeland battled back as they trimmed the lead and eventually took the edge in the fourth on a Jamie Lee layup that made the score 34-32 with less than 30 seconds to play.
After a timeout, Wausau East brought the ball down, scored and was fouled with 1.7 seconds to play.
East hit the free throw to go up 35-34 and Lakeland's last second shot came up short, handing the Thunderbirds the tough loss to start the season.
