02/02/2017 - GIRLS BASKETBALL: East Withstands Lincoln High Fourth-Quarter Comeback

By Kellan Heavican

Lincoln East survived four separate scoring runs from Lincoln High on Friday night to hold on for a 56-49 win on Thursday night at Lincoln East.

The Spartans raced out to a 15-4 first-quarter lead, before the Links responded to close out the first frame on a 9-0 run capped by three pointers from Mariah Cates and Sirilia Herrera. 


Opening the second quarter, East responded with a 9-2 run themselves thanks to a pair of baskets from Rachel Weber and one from Allison Roh to take a 24-15 lead.  However, the Links (9-9) would respond, again, cutting a nine-point deficit to a 29-24 game at halftime.


Both squads went back and forth in the third period, but in the final quarter Lincoln High pulled within 3, 48-45.  Herrera used back-to-back three’s to cap an 8-2 run with 2:25 left.  Lincoln East responded by hitting 8 of 16 free throws down the stretch and forced missed shots.


Herrera finished with a  game-high 17 points for Lincoln High.  Weber and Roh led East (12-6) with 14.  Regan Sankey also aided 12 for the Spartans.
