01/14/2017 - GIRLS BASKETBALL: Cates Leads Links In Win Over Bears

By Kellan Heavican

Lincoln High’s Mariah Cates finished with 19 points, including five-first-half three’s that sparked the Links over Omaha Bryan 56-47 Saturday evening at the Earl Johnson Activities Building.


Cates’s performance was followed by 13 from Natayah Wilson and Lincoln High controlled it from the opening tip. The lead grew to as many as 14 before Omaha Bryan (0-11) started to chip away. 


 With 5:57 left, Sierra Leeper went one for two followed by two more shots that pulled the Bears within seven.  That jump-started a 10-0 run that cut it to 50-44 after Bijany Muon basket.


The Links (7-6) responded hitting a basket and three of four from the foul line to close out the game. Even though Cates had 15 points at the break, she converted 4 of 6 in the fourth quarter from the stripe.


Morgan Mace led Omaha Bryan with 18 and Madeline Nekola added 10.  Sirila Herrera also contributed with 8 for the Links.
