RURAL MIDDLE POINT — Once the Lincolnview girls cagers grabbed the lead with 2:14 left in the first period, they held on to it for dear life and knocked off St. John’s 46-41 in non-league action Saturday afternoon at The Lancerdome.
The game was postponed from Tuesday due to weather.
Leading the way for the host Lady Lancers (7-11) were sophomore Ashton Bowersock with 12 and nine each from senior Christine Stemen, junior Julia Thatcher and junior Hannah McCleery.
The Lady Blue Jays (5-13) received a varsity career-high 20 markers and 10 boards from freshman Jessica Geise and five from sophomore Sydney Fischbach.
The Jays won the 2-quarter junior varsity matchup 15-10.
Both teams return to the court Monday: St. John’s at Paulding and Lincolnview at Fort Jennings.
