Another night, another win. Thursday, February 14, 2008

A mess of Cardinals and Trojans scramble for a rebound Feb. 14 in Lincoln's 53-42 win over Wilson.

Lincoln started tonight a little flat. To be fair, they have several sick players right now. But they did fall behind in the first quarter by as many as seven points to Wilson, and didn't catch the Trojans until just before the end of the second quarter.

Leading by three at halftime, they pulled away with a 23-6 third quarter. In the fourth period Wilson scored as many as they did in the previous three. It was, however, too little, too late. The Cardinals hung on for a 53-42 win to stay unbeaten in conference play with just one game remaining.

Kelsey Goodell has started every game for the Cardinals so far, and is normally one of their top three scorers. However, I've found that it's not easy to get a good picture of her in action. The first photo here, is a pretty typical example—one of the taller girls on the team, Kelsey usually plays on the post, bumping and grinding among a pack of knees and elbows.

Tonight, my goal was to get a good picture of her, doing what she does best. The opportunity came in the third quarter (below).

Kelsey Goodell scored 5 points for the Cardinals Feb. 14 against Wilson.

Makenzie Blythe led the Cardinals with 15 points. For the second time this season, all but one of the players made it onto the scoreboard. Free throw shooting for Lincoln was pretty weak tonight—7 for 15 overall.
