The Lincoln County High School girls basketball team scored 57 points on both Friday and Saturday.
Their opponents scored much less, and the Lady Lynx cruised to two more wins to remain perfect in league play.
Lincoln did get off to a bit of rocky start during Friday’s game against Calvary Chapel.
There were turnovers all over for both teams early. Junior Kylee Cameron made the first points for Lincoln. A foul shot came after that, which she missed, but the Lady Lynx were able rebound to stay on offense and Cameron drove again for another two points.
Senior Brynlee Wadsworth ended the first quarter with a three-pointer, putting the Lady Lynx up, 7-5.
The Lady Lynx began scoring more consistently and quickly in the second quarter. They had good ball movement and Cameron was waiting down low to make the layups. Sophomore Sadie Soderborg kept them in the lead with her foul shots. Senior Brooklyn Hafen contributed with tough defense, and the scoring continued. The quarter ended with a score of 19-10, Lincoln.
The Lady Lynx kicked it into gear with a blistering 24-point third quarter, scoring over and over again, holding Calvary with good defense. They ended the quarter ahead, 43-16.
The fourth quarter continued the same way, so the Lady Lynx were able to relax a little from the stressful fight of the first half. They won 57-22.
Soderborg and Hafen both had 14 points. Wadsworth had 10.
The Lady Lynx played Meadows the next day and won easily, 57-12.
The girls played a good game. Lots of girls were able to get in and play for a few minutes. Hafen had 15 points, Soderborg had 11, and Macie Howard had 9.
Lincoln is 18-3 overall and 12-0 in league play. The team is at Needles )18-8, 10-3) tonight at 6 p.m. and at Laughlin (7-9, 6-5) tomorrow at 5 p.m. Next weekend marks the final regular season games of the season.
