Lincoln bounces back Friday, March 07, 2008

Tresa Palmer drives in on North Medford's McKenzie Smith in the first quarter of the Cardinals' 47-40 win Mar. 7.

Lincoln bounced back from yesterday's loss in the quarterfinals to beat North Medford 47-40 in the consolation round. With the win, the Cardinals put themselves into Saturday's 4th place/6th place match against South Eugene.

The Cardinals started off flat, shooting only 3-20 in the first half. At the break, they were down 23-17.

They came back strong with a 15-6 third quarter, and held tough in the fourth to secure the win.

Knowing that it would be her last game if they lost, Palmer said she wanted to "leave it all on the court." She played one of her most aggressive games of the season. She only scored two points, but led the Cardinals defensively with five boards and four steals.

Iris Lerch also played much better than yesterday, scoring eight points and grabbing three boards and two steals of her own.
