MIDDLE POINT - Host Lincolnview outscored Ada by a combined 20 points over the middle quarters to post a 45-31 win in the Northwest Conference girls basketball regular season finale Thursday evening.

The Lady Bulldogs led 8-5 after the first period. But the Lancer girls seized a 24-11 halftime lead with a momentum-changing 19-3 second quarter.

Lancer sophomore guard Kendall Bollenbacher scored 10 of her team-high 15 points in the decisive second period.

Lincolnview padded its margin to 37-20 heading to the fourth quarter with a 13-9 third stanza.

The Bulldogs won the final period 11-8 as freshman guard Courtney Sumner scored seven points, but it was not enough to overcome a big deficit.

Ada fell to 7-15 overall and finished 0-8 in the NWC with the defeat. Meanwhile, Lincolnview improved to 4-18 and finished 2-6 in NWC play with the victory, good for seventh place.

“We did some good things,” said Ada second-year head coach Morgan Bass. “We won the first quarter, but then they went on about a 24-4 run, which killed us.

“Our (lack of) depth hurt us yet again, but overall I was proud of our efforts,” she added.

Sumner tallied a game-high 16 points. Bulldog junior post Miranda Wills added nine markers.

Lancer senior Lana Carey scored nine points, while junior Annie Mendenhall added seven.

Ada canned 11 two-point baskets and a pair of triples, both by Sumner. The Bulldogs girls converted three of 11 foul shots (27 percent).

The Lancer girls made 17 field goals, all from inside the arc. Lincolnview also converted 11 of 17 free throws (65 percent).

Ada was playing its third game in four days with a roster shortened by the loss of two starters to season-ending injuries.

“It was exhausting,” admitted Bass of the tough week. The Bulldogs went 1-2 in those games, beating Waynesfield on the road.

The Lancer girls ended their season with wins this week over Ridgemont (63-25) and Ada.
