The Lincoln County High School girls basketball team faced the Lake Mead Lady Eagles at home last Friday. Protecting their 6-0 league record, the Lady Lynx dominated with a 29-point win.
Lincoln has a good habit of starting out strong in the first quarter. The team played good defense, keeping Lake Mead at only four points the whole first quarter. Lincoln scored 13 points.
The second quarter, the Lady Lynx dominated once again. Lake Mead scored eight points this quarter, while Lincoln pushed on offense to score another 18 points and took a 31-12 lead into halftime.
It was more of the same in the third and fourth quarters as Lincoln cruised. Every girl got to play in the game. The Lady Lynx didn’t let down and still fought for a win even with a team that wasn’t as competitive as they were.
Junior Kendra Mathews was a huge help to the team with 10 points, one of her highest scoring games. Sophomore Sadie Soderborg was right behind her with nine. Senior Brooklyn Hafen had eight. The final score was 52-23, Lincoln.
The team is 11-3 overall and 6-0 in league play. Today, the Lady Lynx will play another undefeated-in-league team Democracy Prep in Las Vegas at 6 p.m. The next day, they travel to Mesquite to play Virgin Valley at 2 p.m.
