Lexington used a stingy defense and a 19-point burst in the second quarter to defeat Cameron Tuesday night at the APK Center. The Lady Eagles were hot from the field in the first half. Lexington made 11 of 18 shots in the first half for a 29-16 advantage.

Rachel Clark and Deja Griffin led the charge as they both sank two three-point shots to aid the Mean Green cause in the first half. The long shots seem to multiply when the defense thinks about them. Angel Parks and Veronica Richardson made shots inside for the Lady Eagles.

The third quarter almost spelled doom for Lexington as they made only one of six shots from the field. The press Cameron put on Lexington caused turnover after turnover. Some were forced and some were just poor execution.

The fourth quarter brought back the Lexington sharp shooting. Lexington dropped in six of 11 tries including Clark’s third threepointer. Parks and Emily Bell made shots inside that kept the Lady Yoe guarding inside and out.

Griffin led Lexington in scoring with 11-points. Clark had 10 points with nine coming on treys. Bell and Parks added eight points each, all coming in high traffic areas.

Cameron took the JV girls game 36-26. Kristin Boettcher scored 10- points to lead Lexington in the game.
