Led by 17 points from Josh Dix and 14 from Andrew Christensen, Abraham Lincoln cruised past Sioux City Heelan 69-40 in a battle of Missouri River Conference teams.

Ten A.L. players scored in the game, and the Lynx’s defense played well in building a 29-16 halftime lead.

“We actually weren’t great in the first half,” A.L. coach Jason Isaacson said. “We had a lead, but in the third we pulled away and secured it.

“Different guys stepped up tonight. Andrew Christensen gave us a spark the whole game with his energy and competitiveness. He’s starting to get some offense.”

The Lynx will be back in action Friday for a clash against city rival Lewis Central.

Treynor 70, Underwood 53

UNDERWOOD — Class 2-A No. 1 Treynor scored only six points in the first quarter Tuesday and found themselves trailing by seven points.

Jack Stogdill tallied a game-high 29 points for Treynor and Jack Tiarks added 19 in a 70-53 Western Iowa Conference victory over Underwood.

Treynor outscored Underwood 64-40 over the final three quarters and hit 10 3-pointers in the game.

“We were probably a little slow with our defensive rotations early in the game,” Treynor coach Scott Rucker said. “After that first quarter, offensively, I thought we were really good. We moved the basketball really well.”

Blake Hall led Underwood Tuesday with 11 points.

Girls Basketball

Lewis Central 65, Omaha Skutt 51

Lewis Central jumped out to a 24-10 lead after the first quarter Tuesday and cruised from there with a 65-51 victory over Omaha Skutt.

“We came out real strong, getting up by 14,” L.C. coach Derek Archer said. “That was what we were hoping for. We were lacking some depth tonight with sickness. We were hoping to get a little bit of a lead and play some zone defense to conserve some energy.”

Megan Witte and Delaney Esterling led the Titans with 19 and 18 points, respectively.

L.C. will play at Clarinda Thursday before concluding the regular season Friday at Abraham Lincoln.

AHSTW 49, Tri-Center 27

NELOA — Class 2-A No. 12 AHSTW won the Western Iowa Conference with Tuesday’s 49-27 win over Tri-Center.

“This was our second night without our leading scorer Kailey Jones, so we were really happy with our kids that came off the bench that hadn’t been getting much playing time,” AHSTW head coach Steve Sauvain said. “I thought Claire Harris, again, had an outstanding night on the defensive end of the court. And Kinsey Scheffler was a force inside for us again tonight.”

Scheffler and Harris led the Vikings in scoring with 19 and 18 points, respectively.

“When we talk about the WIC championship, that conference has had so much success at the next level, in the postseason,” Sauvain said. “And it really means a lot to the girls; it’s been 20 years since the district has won the WIC, so it’s a big deal to all five of our communities.

“This is going to prepare us for tournament time. The battles of the WIC will definitely make us stronger.”

The Vikings begin postseason play next Tuesday and will play the winner of Saturday’s tilt between Underwood and MVAOCOU.

Macy Vanfossan led Underwood with 11 points.

Treynor was paced by Kennedy Elwood’s nine points.

“We just didn’t execute on either side of the ball throughout the whole night,” Treynor coach Joe Chapman said. “Not our best effort of the year. Hopefully we can wash that away and focus on Nodaway Valley.”

Glenwood 65, Shenandoah 46

SHENANDOAH — Class 4-A No. 3 Glenwood improved to 21-0 on the season following a 65-46 road win over Shenandoah Tuesday night.

“Every game gets a little bit tougher and has a little more pressure and I think we played like that tonight,” Glenwood head coach Brian Rasmussen said. “Shenandoah did a nice job, they kept us off the offensive boards and didn’t allow us to get a lot of second chance opportunities.”

Glenwood’s Madison Camden led all scorers with 20 points in the win. Jenna Hopp and Abby Hughes chipped in 10 points apiece for the Rams.

The undefeated Rams conclude their regular season on Friday when they host Denison-Schleswig.
