VAN WERT – Lincolnview outscored visiting Wayne Trace 37-11 in the second half as the Lady Lancers pulled away for a 71-39 win over the Raiders in non-league girls basketball action last Monday night.
The host Lancers turned a 34-28 halftime advantage into a 58-32 lead after three quarters, forcing eight Raider turnovers in the stanza and limiting the Raiders to one of seven shooting.
“We dug ourselves a hole at the start of the game but then we did a good job of continuing to battle and work our way back into the game,” noted Raider head coach Greg Davis. “But, I am not sure if we were tired in the second half or what it was but you have to give Lincolnview a lot of credit. They played hard and they took advantage of our mistakes.”
