The Lincoln County High School girls basketball team took care of business at home with two big wins last weekend.

However, they lost a close one at White Pine 54-50 on Tuesday, snapping a 12-game winning streak.

Last Friday, the Lady Lynx defeated Needles 44-27. “It was a great team victory, in which we had balanced scoring and solid defense,” said Coach Ken Thornock. Hannah Hafen led the way with 12 points. She also had six rebounds and two steals. Easton Tingey had 11 rebounds and a steal. For Needles, Jane Antone led with 10 points.

On Saturday, Lincoln defeated Laughlin 52-21. “We worked on some defensive concepts and played all ten girls,” Thornock said. “And we had a solid 30-point lead.”

Kailey Kelly and Easton Tingey each had 11 points. Kelly had six rebounds and a steal. Tingey had three rebounds and two steals. For Laughlin, Teresa Chapa had seven points.

The Tuesday night matchup at White Pine saw LCHS come back from an eight-point halftime deficit, but the team fell a little short against the second place Lady Bobcats. This was despite a 22-point performance by senior Savannah Harr, who added six rebounds, six assists and four steals.

White Pine had three different players in double figures.

Lincoln’s final regular season game is tonight at 6 p.m. in Panaca against Agassi Prep. Agassi is 11-4 overall and in third place in the Division III Southern League with an 11-3 record.

The Lady Lynx remain in first place. The team is 22-3 overall and 14-1 in league play.
