The Lynn Camp Wildcats quickly erased last week’s home loss to Williamsburg by picking up a 75-68 win over Oneida Baptist Tuesday on the road.

Jonah Mitchell led the Wildcats (2-1) with a 23-point effort and five three-pointers, while Brad Bargo added 16 and Brandon Siler chipped in 11.

“This was a very good win for us,” Lynn Camp coach Anthony Pennington said. “We really needed to get this win after our loss to Williamsburg. We actually had some quality time in the gym since the loss and we practiced well.”

Pennington decided to change things up a bit against the Mountaineers by using a new line-up and it seemed to work.

Lynn Camp led 22-15 after the first quarter and 46-35 at halftime.

“Like I said, I thought we played a good game,” Pennington said. “We had a new line-up out there and we really had a balanced attack. A lot of guys got opportunities to play and they took advantage of it.”

The Wildcats continued their impressive play in the third quarter by outscoring Oneida Baptist, 17-12, but the Mountaineers went on a 21-12 run during the game’s final eight minutes before losing by seven points.

“We played a lot of different people in the end and they were able to get back into the game,” Pennington said. “We do need to learn how to put teams away. But the good thing is that we got a win and now we’ll get ready for Thursday’s game.”

Lynn Camp will host Rockcastle County Thursday before getting ready for next week’s Bowman Invitational.
