SIOUX CITY — Class 5-A No. 14 Abraham Lincoln held on to beat 15th-ranked Sioux City East 49-47 Tuesday night.

“Our defense was just solid tonight,” A.L. head coach Chad Schaa said. “We were able to get a lot of stops. Give credit to East — they came out in the fourth quarter and started dropping some things on us and we had to respond. It was such a team effort. Everybody was all-in for the team.”

Although the Lynx hung their hat on the defensive end, they had three players finish in double-figures including Jillian Shanks and Julia Wagoner, who finished with 15 points a piece to go along with Lucy Turner’s 13 points.

We got after them defensively in the second half and hit some big shots.”

“We’re becoming more balanced,” Peterson continued. “We’re getting good minutes from everybody. Everybody is starting to contribute and that’s what I’ve been wanting to see since the beginning of the season. We’re finally starting to come together as a team and it’s paying off dividends now.”
