The Lincoln County High School girls basketball team is almost guaranteed a spot in playoffs after last week’s wins. Calvary Chapel and The Meadows didn’t put up much of a fight for the Lynx. Lincoln beat each team by more than twenty points.
Senior center Kristal Jackson is back and put up some solid numbers against Cavalry. She had 14 points, four rebounds, six steals and a block.
The girls played aggressive defense that got them 11 team blocks and 23 steals. Their offense was just as dangerous. The team was hitting about every shot, and they shared the ball well. Four players scored in double digits. Junior guard Kailey Kelly had 14 points and freshman guard/forward Sadie Soderborg scored 13. Junior Brooklyn Hafen added 12.
Jackson was also a key player in the win against Meadows. She had 23 points, three assists, four steals and a monster block.
The girls played great defense, holding Meadows to ten points a quarter or less. Lincoln dominated the game on both sides of the court. They couldn’t miss. They scored 21 points in the first period. That’s almost as much as Meadows had all game.
Lincoln is sits third in the 2A Southern League at 15-7 overall and 11-2 in league play, with a chance to move up in its final regular season games. The team’s next three games are against the other top four teams in the league. The last home games are tonight against first-place Needles (19-4, 12-1) at 6 and tomorrow against fourth-place Laughlin (11-6, 8-4) at noon.
The Lynx final game will be at second-place Agassi Prep on Feb. 10.
