WILLIAMSBURG — The Lynn Camp Lady Wildcats won their second straight game Tuesday, knocking off Williamsburg on the road, 39-37.
Heather Wilson and Brandy Smith carried the load for the Lady Wildcats, pouring in 15 and 13 points, respectively.
Despite falling behind 10-9 as the first quarter came to a close, Lynn Camp was able to pick up the pace and grab a 24-18 lead at the half.
After the win, Lynn Camp assistant coach Mike Hensley said the staff was pleased with the way the Lady Wildcats were able to grind it out for a win.
“This was not a great shooting night, but we hung in there defensively and pulled out a tough victory,” Hensley said. “Kayla Smith and Heather Wilson really stepped up for us and carried most of the load.”
After holding a six-point lead at halftime, Lynn Camp slowed down a bit as the Lady Yellow Jackets played them to a stand still as the teams scored nine points each in the quarter, making it a 33-27 game with one quarter left to play.
Williamsburg was able to trim the gap in the closing minutes of the game, but Lynn Camp managed to hold on for the win.
“We just have to continue to take it one game at a time and keep better,” Hensley said. “If we do that, I think some good things are going to happen for this team.”
