    Lincoln 'Outruns' Bridgeport, 59-47


    BRIDGEPORT _ In the biggest intra-Harrison County girls basketball game of the season to date, Lincoln won the battle of runs as the Cougars defeated Bridgeport 59-47 Wednesday night.

    Lincoln (10-1, 5-0 in Harrison County) used two big runs to the Indians' one, to outduel the hosts (7-6, 3-1).

    Lincoln coach Jeff Osbourn spoke about the importance of the win.

    "Any time you can come in here and get a win against a team of their calibre, it is a big win," said Osbourn. "With our record, we aren't going to sneak up on anybody, so the girls showed their character by winning here tonight."

    The first run came with the Cougars trailing 7-6 with three minutes left in the first quarter when Chrissy Luchuck knocked down nine of her game-high 24 points. That sparked a 14-0 run that helped the Cougars jump out to a commanding 20-7 lead.

    Most of Luchuck's points came off backdoor cuts against the Indians' man-to-man defense. The strategy would be one that would haunt Bridgeport all night.

    A Katy Wilson jumpshot finally stopped the Indians' bleeding, but heading into the final three minutes of the half, Bridgeport still found itself down 27-14. It was at that moment that the Indians made their first serious run of the game, as they used their intimidating inside game to power their way back.

    Bridgeport outscored Lincoln 10-2 during those final three minutes to close its deficit to 29-22 heading into intermission.

    Halftime was just a 10 minute break in the Indians' resurgence as they continued their streak in the first minutes of the third quarter. Outhustling the Cougars on the offensive boards, Bridgeport was able to cut the deficit to one, 29-28, after a 6-0 run to start the quarter.

    That however would be as close as it would get on the night, as the experienced Cougars regained their rhythm and scored the next seven points to expand their lead back up to eight.

    Luchuck's five consecutive points keyed the run that gave Lincoln control of the game again with four minutes left in the third. The Cougars ended the quarter up 46-36, and didn't allow the lead to slip under six points the rest of the way.

    Lincoln finished off the game at the free throw line, as the Cougars nailed seven shots in the fourth quarter to snuff out any hopes of an Indian comeback.

    Bridgeport coach Dave Marshall spoke about the runs that beat his team.

    "You cannot give a team like Lincoln 14 straight points and expect to win," Marshall said. "They killed us with the backdoor cuts all night, even though our girls knew exactly what they were going to do.

    "This game really hurts, because the girls wanted it badly. I still think that they are not 12 points better than us."

    Supporting Luchuck's 24 points was Tabitha Hutson who finished with 15 and Jessica Barron who nailed down seven points.

    Peggy Scott led the Indians with 15 points, while Kristen Queen and Alisha Flesher finished with seven each.

    Lincoln (59)

    Medina 1 4-4 6; Luchuck 9 4-8 24; Morris 1 2-2 5; Barron 3 1-2 7; Hutson 4 7-11 15; Lambert 1 0-0 2; Totals 19 18-27 59.

    R.C. Byrd's Defense, Balance Too Much for LHS


    Robert C. Byrd used an aggressive man-to-man defense and a balanced scoring attack led by Heather Waugaman to down Liberty 61-32 in Big 10 girls basketball action.

    The Eagles set the tone early in the contest. With the score knotted up at 2-2, RCB utilized the timely outside shooting of Ashlee Secret, as she accounted for six points in a 12-0 run which sent the Mountaineers reeling and helped give the Eagles a 16-7 lead after one period of play.

    RCB kept the pressure on as it limited Liberty to just three field goals in the second quarter and in the process, put 16 more points on the board to take a 32-14 lead into the lockerroom at halftime.

    It was in this period that Waugaman made her presence felt as she scored eight of her game-high 16 points in that frame as the Mountaineers were unable to stop her post play.

    "She (Waugaman) played real well for us tonight," commented RCB head coach Bill Bennett. "Getting the ball inside to the post has been a point of emphasis for us and tonight she did a real good job for us."

    The Eagles put the game out of reach in the third quarter by holding the Mountaineers to four points and going inside to their post players to build a 48-18 lead after three periods of play.

    After Kelley Southern's jumper early in the third quarter made the score 32-16, Liberty was unable to muster another hoop until 1:22 remained in the quarter.

    "We just didn't mentally get involved in making good passes in that man-to-man press and that took us out of the game," said LHS head coach Gary Courtney. "RCB has made great strides and whatever we threw at them, they came right back and retaliated."

    The final quarter was played by reserves as the Eagles coasted through the frame.

    "I think we played pretty well tonight although defensively we still have to play a little better in some areas," said Bennett. "We got beat on dribble penetration and we can't afford to do that so there are still some things we have to work on."

    Following Waugaman in scoring for the Eagles (5-6, 5-3) was Katie Critchfield with 10.

    Liberty (0-12, 0-9) was led by Kellie Nichols' 7 points.

    Both teams return to action Friday night with RCB at South Harrison, while the Mountaineers host Grafton.

    Nichols 3 1-6 7; Bee 1 0-0 2; Robinson 1 0-0 3; Will 1 0-1 2; Fisher 2 0-0 4; Southern 3 0-0 6; Kopp 0 0-0 0; Goff 2 0-0 4; Bland 2 0-1 4; Allen 0 0-0 0; Totals 15 1-8 32.

    Colts Claim 68-46
    Victory over Hawks

    PHILIP BARBOUR 68, South Harrison 46:

    Amy Markley fired in 15 points and Cindy Poling added 13 as Philip Barbour avenged an earlier loss to South Harrison with a 68-46 victory Wednesday night in Philippi.

    The Colts (4-5 overall, 4-2 Big 10) led 40-21 by halftime and were never seriously threatened in the second half.

    "The last time we played (South Harrison) we didn't play hard in all four quarters," said Colts coach Tammy Martin. "Tonight, the girls played hard and did a good job. Plus we shot better at the foul line and that helped."

    PBHS was just 18 of 37 from the free-throw line Wednesday night but in the first game against the Hawks the Colts made just 8 of 32.

    Melissa Dawson scored 14 points to lead South Harrison while Amber Morrison added 12.
