Lady Eagles Stung by Bees 33-30

by Mike Organ

Lexington squandered an eightpoint halftime lead by scoring only one point in the first 7:59 minutes of the third quarter in their game against Academy. Mackenzie Brown launched a mid-court shot at the buzzer for three points to add to the other points scored in the quarter.

The long three pointer inspired the Lady Eagles at the start of the fourth quarter. Kristen Boettcher and Madison Bexley dropped threes on the next two Lexington shots, as the Lady Eagles regained the lead with the long distance bombs, 27-22. Academy answered with a two-point shot and with a traditional three on a lay in and foul. After the two bombs, Lexington could only muster three more points, via free throws, as Academy added six more points, on a basket and free throws.

Brown and Boettcher had eight points, to lead Lexington’s scoring, with Bexley right behind with seven. Brown, Boettcher, Christen Schneider, Meghann Wrinkle, and Andrea Plummer all tied for the rebounding lead, with four caroms collected each. Schneider stole the ball five times from the Bees.
