LMS Basketball Season Ends
The Lexington Lady Middle School Eagles ended their basketball season in Rogers on Thursday February 7th. The B team Lady Eagles fought well all season long and, while the score did not always go in their favor, the pride of being an Eagle supporter was ever present. The B team Lady Eagles fell to the Rogers Eagles by a score of 11-2. The score was tied at the end of the first period 2-2, but the Lady Rogers Eagles gave Lexington all they wanted by the end of the game. #24 Andiah Yannis scored for Lexington.
The 7A Eagle match was a spirited game with a fast pace up and down the court. The first period was one of lots of movement, but little scoring. Rogers led 3-2 at the end of the first. In the second, Rogers opened up the scoring and poured in 12 points, while holding Lexington to 4, making a half time score of 15-6 Rogers. The 3rd and 4th periods were identical for both teams, with both sets of Eagles scoring 11 points. The final score was 37-28 Rogers. Scoring for Lexington were: 2 each by #20 Ma’Kayla Atkins and #40 Abbey Dillon, 4 by #42 Madison Iselt, 5 from #35 Rayghann Stewart and 12 by #34 Keanna Clemons.
The 8A game was the game of the night for Lexington. The two Eagle teams were as evenly matched as any they played all year. The Rogers Eagles went out in front first and outscored Lexington 6-4 in the first period. In the second, Rogers looked like they were heading to a half time lead, but with seconds left, Lexington’s #5 Courtney Strain inched her toes up to the three point line and shot. The ball slipped in for 3 points and the game was all tied up 10-10. Rogers re-grouped at halftime and came out strong. In the 3rd period, they outscored Lexington 8-2 and had what appeared to be a comfortable lead at the end of the 3rd, 18-12. The fourth period was owned by Lexington. Coach Horn had the players press Rogers, and Lexington was fast to the ball, creating lots of turnovers. Lexington held Rogers scoreless in the fourth and answered with 11 points of their own to win the game, the last of their 8th grade careers, by a score of 23-18. Scoring for Lexington were: 2 each by #22 Megan Walch and #11 Dessiny Turk, 4 each by #3 Kynslie Meyer and #25 Madison Stefek and 11 by #5 Courtney Strain.
