That continued Thursday at Lincolnview High School when the Lady Lancers (14-5, 5-2 Northwest Conference) bounced back from a loss to St. John’s on Tuesday with a 61-57 NWC win over Ada (11-8, 5-2).
“After all the adversity that we’ve gone through as a team in the last week, it was great to see (the girls) come back and play as well as they did tonight,” explained Linclnview coach Dan Williamson.”Everything we didn’t do Tuesday we did tonight. We made a ton of free throws and finished layups, so it was good to see (the girls) bounce back.”
Lincolnview held a 49-33 lead with less than six minutes left to play in the game but the Lady Bulldogs wouldn’t go away without a fight. Ada scored 10 straight points spurred by a pair of baskets by sophomore forward Tori Wyss. The Lady Bulldogs put the press on Lincolnview during the run but the Lady Lancers regained their composure, held onto the ball and knocked down most of their free throws to hold onto the narrow win.
