Lady Eagles Fall to Lago Vista

by Mike Organ

Lexington had its best first quarter of the entire season when they scored 19 points against Lago Vista. Lexington dropped treys and made twisting drives as they put up more points in a quarter than they had in some games. Mackenzie Brown, Madison Bexley, and Christen Schneider made threes in that first quarter. The shots kept dropping for Lexington.

Bexley started the points’ barrage with a three. Brown made a free throw and then a deuce. Schneider dropped a three, after a pass from Brown. Brown then dropped a pair of treys on consecutive trips down the court. Kasey Smith grabbed a rebound and dropped a pair. The problem was, the 19 points would account for half of the game total for the Lady Eagles. Lexington would allow Lago Vista to close to 28- 21 at halftime.

The depleted squad could not bucket in the third quarter. They scored only a lonely free throw in the third quarter, for the second time this week.

Lexington rebounded and found the scoring touch in the fourth quarter. The two teams battled, with both missing free throws that would have won the game or made the game a lot easier. The much taller LV girls blocked a driving layup attempt by Brown as the clock ran out to preserve the win 39-38.

Lexington only had 13 turnovers in the game, which enabled them to be in the game, despite the singleton in the third period. Lexington made six of 16 shots from inside the arc and 5 of 15 from outside. Lexington made only 10 of 19 from the charity stripe.

Brown ended with 22 of the Lady Eagle points. Bexley and Schneider had five each in the closely fought game.

The Lady Eagle JV lost to Lago Vista 32-27.
