Lincoln played at White Pine last week, and lost a double-header in straight sets of 2-0. No scores were available.
The Bobcats, returning to the Southern Division III after being in the Northern Division for a few years, moved into second place in the league (5-1) with the wins, and Lincoln County is now in third place (4-2). League leader is Calvary Chapel (4-0).
Lincoln coach Ken Thornock said the Lynx “did not show up and play with the ability we’re capable of playing. That was our fault.” The scores, he said, were not as close as he would have liked to have seen them.“We had a lot of unforced errors. When you give a team like White Pine, free ball opportunities all the time they are going to capitalize with hitting the ball at you. If they do that enough, you make a lot of errors.”
“Kayla Mathews and Chesnee Harding played well,” he said. “Most of the girls played pretty well. We just didn’t play consistent enough.”
Lincoln had an important match with fourth place The Meadows yesterday in Panaca. They have their last road game of the season next Friday at Laughlin.
