The Lincoln County High School girls basketball team hosted Mountain View and The Meadows last weekend.
Neither opponent was much of a challenge for the Lady Lynx.
Mountain View was the first of Lincoln’s victims. In the first period, LCHS held them to one point. During the second period, they kept the pressure on and got out to a bigger lead by halftime.
The Lady Lynx weren’t scoring at as high of a pace as usual. In the third period, they only had 11, and in the first half they had 16. Against much more difficult opponents, they could score that regularly. But it was still enough, as Lincoln won 37-11. Junior guard Kailey Kelley really stood out with sixteen points and a few rebounds.
In Lincoln’s game against Lake Mead it was a whole different game offensively for the Lady Lynx then the one against Mountain View the night before. The team was killing it in the first period. They scored twenty points, and Mountain View only had one bucket. The girls picked up the offensive pace and was still able to play hard defense.
At halftime the game was pretty much over. Lincoln had 37 points and the other team had 9. Lincoln carried the hot streak on to the second half where they scored nineteen more points and won the game by 30, 56-26.
Kelley had 13 points. Senior Kia Phillips scored 16 points, and freshman Sadie Soderborg also got double digits with 12. The girls had a great defensive game. They had five players on their team get at least one block.
The Lady Lynx are gearing up for playoffs. Currently, they are third in the division with a 13-7 overall and 9-2 league record.
The team hosts Calvary (6-8, 4-6) today at 5 p.m. and The Meadows (5-10, 3-8) tomorrow at 1:30 p.m.
