Mountain Lions roar past Lincoln

by Mike Nutter

SPORTS WRITER

SHINNSTON -- It was quite simple really.

Tucker County pressured, Lincoln reeled and in a matter of minutes it was over.

The Mountain Lions (6-3) forced 10 first quarter turnovers and placed 10 players in the scoring column in an 86-26 win over Lincoln Friday.

"We kind of knew (Lincoln) was down this year," Tucker County coach David Kyle said. "We figured if we put pressure on them we could create a lot of problems.

"That's basically what we did. By the second quarter we pulled out of it and were playing a lot of kids."

By then, it had been over for a while.

Liz Arnett scored on an offensive rebound for the Cougars (0-8) to cut the lead to 8-2 with 5:30 to go in the first quarter. After that, Lincoln was blitzed with a press which forced 22 first-half turnovers, directly resulting in 34 points, as Tucker County led 49-12 at halftime.

Susan Beall led the Mountain Lions with 19 points and seven rebounds, while reserve Heather Lowther followed with 14 points on six of eight shooting. Guard Kelli Snyder added 13 points, all in the first half, for Tucker County which held a 41-29 rebounding advantage and forced 35 turnovers.

Megan Bolyard and Megan Kosanic chipped in eight points each for the Mountain Lions, who kept leads of more than 50 points for much of the second half.

"Most of the teams we've faced have pressured us," Lincoln coach Buddy Randolph said. "I thought we did a better job of handling it (last week) against South Harrison. Tonight, we were very sloppy."

Brandi Brown led Lincoln with 15 points.

"Actually, we got a lot accomplished," Kyle said. "We got to play a lot of kids and that's what we were anticipating. And after a tough loss at Grafton, we really needed this."
