Easy does it

Lynn Camp eases past OBI with 54-22 victory

CORBIN — By Chris Parsons / Sports Editor

LYNN CAMP — It may not have been the prettiest game of the season, but Tuesday’s 54-22 win over Oneida Baptist Institute came at a good time for the Lynn Camp Lady Wildcats.

Head coach Richard Jones said he wanted to see how his team would respond coming off Saturday’s 64-33 pounding at the hands of Bell County. When all was said and done, Jones praised his team for Tuesday’s effort.

“Oneida Baptist is probably the most improved team in the 13th Region and they’ve done a great job this year,” Jones said. “They beat Berea and they played Pineville within four points, so I was just hoping we could come out here and take care of business.

“The girls bounced back from our butt-kicking at Bell County, so I was really happy to see them respond this way,” he added. “It may not have been the best game we have played all season, but we needed to come out and get a win and I’ll give my kids credit for that.”

Lynn Camp took an early lead, jumping out to a 14-0 lead to start the game, and never looked back. The Lady Mountaineers got on the scoreboard with :15 to play in the first quarter when Lauren Nichols made good on a 3-pointer, cutting the deficit to 14-3 to close the opening period.

The Lady Wildcat offense slowed somewhat in the second quarter, but still managed to outscore OBI 9-7, stretching the lead to 23-10 at halftime.

Lynn Camp’s Heather Wilson reached a milestone midway through the second quarter when she scored her 1,000th point as a Lady Wildcat. Wilson was recognized after a made free throw completed an old-fashioned three-point play and presented with a game ball.

Jones’ squad picked up the pace to start the second half, opening the third quarter with an 8-0 run that pushed the gap to 31-10 with just under six minutes to play in the period.

OBI was able to stop the bleeding, but only temporarily, as the Lady Wildcats went on another 8-0 run before closing out the period with a 45-16 lead.

Lynn Camp closed out the game by outscoring its opponent 9-6 in the final eight minutes to seal the 54-22 win. Wilson and Brooklyn Bryant each had nine points to lead the Lady Wildcats, while Jessica May chipped in seven and Merita Burke scored six.
