Lady Eagles Drop Yoe 44-35
The Lady Eagles and the Cameron Lady Yoe engaged in an exciting game Friday night. Both teams had small leads until Lexington opened up a five-point lead in the third quarter. Cameron fought back to take a brief fourth quarter lead before Lexington pulled away to win the game. The third quarter advantage was keyed by Madison Bexley, who scored seven of the 13 points Lexington had in the quarter. A lay up, a threepointer, and two free throws comprised her output.
For the game, Mackenzie Brown led the Lady Eagles with 17 points. Brown continually drove the lane for either a basket or for a pair of free throws. Brown made six of 10 free throw opportunities. She had four lay ins and a three.
The Lady Eagles’ press break worked well against Cameron. Many times the Lady Eagles got the ball to a player wide open under the basket only to see the shot missed. This happened at least five times during the contest.
