The next day, the girls played another league game against Lake Mead.
Senior Kendra Mathews kicked off the first quarter with a few foul shots and a block. Lake Mead initially matched Lincoln point for point. In the second quarter, the Lady Lynx picked it up and built the lead. Soderborg hit two jump shots, one after another. Frehner came off the bench to get an offensive rebound and put it back for two points.
Lincoln came back after the half and gave up a few points to Lake Mead. Mathews then made two layups within the first few minutes of the fourth quarter. The girls followed suit and regained control of the game. Soderborg assisted to Gwen Lamb for a layup. Lamb did the same thing right after. Lincoln won the game, 45-28.
Mathews had 23 points, seven rebounds and four blocks.
Soderborg had 11 points, 19 rebounds, six steals and two blocks.
On Tuesday, Jan 15, Lincoln faced Adelson and won 58-6.
Soderborg had 19 points. Mathews and Alexis Long each had 10.
Mathews said, “We’re starting to learn to work together as a team. We’re learning each other’s tendencies and moving the ball a lot more. Basically, getting to know how each teammate plays. I’m really excited to play the games this weekend because when we played them at the beginning of the season, I knew we could’ve done better. I want to see how far we’ve come and to see how much better we do against them because of how we’ve been playing lately.”
On Jan. 18, Lincoln County plays Virgin Valley at 5 p.m. at home. On Jan. 19, the girls travel to Moapa to play at 3 p.m.
