02/23/2017 - GIRLS DISTRICT BASKETBALL: Rockets Win A-1 Title, Earn No. 1 Seed At State


By Kellan Heavican

Lincoln Northeast’s strong fourth-quarter run lifted them to the District A-1 Championship on Thursday evening at the Ed Johnson Gym by defeating Papillion-LaVista 66-49.


After entering the fourth quarter up by eight, Azaiya Trainor sparked the Rockets behind seven points an assist to Nigeria Jones that capped a 9-0 run.  Papio had no answer and found themselves trailing 52-36.

 

However, things were much tighter in the first half.  LNE (24-2) started the game trailing 6-0, but responded with a 17-3 run to end the first and start the second quarter.  McKenna Minter helped ignite the Rockets by scoring four timely buckets.

 

The Monarchs responded by using a 12-4 run themselves behind back-to-back three-point plays from Josey Ryan and a basket from Hannah McCarville.  The run cut the Rocket lead to 23-21 at halftime.

 

The Rocket defense and their speed on offense were too much for the Monarchs (12-13) who only scored six field goals in the second half.  That difference led to a 43-28 scoring margin in the second half.

 

Minter finished with a game-high 21 points and Trainor added 11.  Ryan led the Monarchs with 15.  The Rockets return to the state tournament after a one-year hiatus.  Opening round of the 2017 state tournament begins on Thursday, March 2nd.
