Horseshoe Bend took a 20-17 lead into the halftime in the defensive minded game, but fell on a crucial three point swing play that HBHS never made up the ground on.
Senior Jay Glenn led Horseshoe Bend in points with 19, while Cory Glenn added six in the loss.
“I thought the guys played a really good defensive game,” HBHS head coach Mike Boyd said.
“(Lafayette) knocked down some shots when they needed to in the second half and that became the difference.”
Horseshoe Bend will host Beulah tonight at Horseshoe Bend School following the girls game accordingly.
