Unfortunately for the Lady Lancers, the game was decided by a first-timer to the rivalry when freshman post Emily Bauer laid in a basket with 0.6 seconds to play to give Crestview a 42-41 win.
“They’re a good team,” Crestview coach Greg Rickard said of Linoclnview. They are like two possessions away from having one loss instead of four. We knew, especially coming over here, with all their seniors, that is was going to be a battle.”
Lancer coach Dan Williamson had similar thoughts to Rickard after the game. “We knew it was going to be a close game - and it was. We’re just so close. We’re six or seven points away from having one loss. It’s frustrating as a coach to see the girls put that much work in. They’ve played so hard and have not been rewarded for that. It’s frustrating.”
Aside from a loss to state No. 1 Ottoville, the other three Lincolnview (9-4, 2-2) losses, including Thursday, have come in the final seconds - including two at the buzzer.
