[February 07, 2017]  Junior Kaelyn Froebe just keeps outdoing herself. With her team trailing Southeast 28-25 at the half Monday night, Froebe put up 20 points in the third quarter to ignite the Lady Railers to victory.

Froebe had scored just six points in the first quarter and was shut down by the Spartans in the second quarter. Froebeís nine points in the fourth quarter sealed the victory for Lincoln, 75-60 the final.

While Froebe was responsible for over half of the teamís points, it was definitely a victory in which several Lady Railers came to play from tip-off. Lincolnís first quarter was just short of spectacular. The ladies showed-off quick ball movement and shot the ball really well. They played very good defense, forcing turnovers and frustrating the Spartans.

The game started with a layup by Froebe, nothing new there, but the junior was back and forth scoring to start the game with fellow junior Grace Bossingham. Bossingham stepped up and made some nice moves in the paint and quickly Lincoln was up 10-3.

A three from Hailie Williams made the score 13-5, but Bossingham kept wanting the ball and she poured in another basket, from the baseline this time, and the score was 15-7 in favor of Lincoln.

Pretty soon it was Morgan Lolling camping out by the basket and Froebe spotted her and threw a full-court bullet pass that Morgan dumped in for two points.

Then Kennedy Lolling would steal the ball and spot her sister hanging out by the basket and again Morgan was good for two points. Not that Morgan wasnít running up and down the court, itís just that she does it so quickly.

A bonus being those Lolling girls are so good at anticipating whatís going to happen, especially with each other. It must be a twin thing. Morgan would return the favor to her sister a minute later, finding Kennedy open beyond the arc and her three put Lincoln up 22-11.

The Lady Railers would see the first quarter come to a close with a 22-13 lead.

Good thing that first quarter was nearly flawless. The second quarter there was a lid on the basket for Lincoln. With 4:06 showing on the clock the Lady Railers were still scoreless in the second quarter, so Coach Richmond changed things up a bit and brought in Leah Schneider and Emma Konczyk.

Schneider quickly drove the lane and drew a foul. She managed to sink one of the free throws to finally put Lincoln on the board, just holding on to a 23-20 lead.

The lead disappeared when Nora Duffy made a basket for Southeast with 2:47 on the clock. With the Spartans now up 24-23, it was Lincoln getting a little rattled.

The Lady Railers never made a field goal in the second quarter and the only other points in the quarter would come from two free throws from Konczyk.

Meanwhile Arryl Barbee would drive the lane and toss up a floater with 24.2 seconds on the clock and the Spartans would have a 28-25 halftime lead over Lincoln.

In the third quarter the crowd saw the old Lady Railers back on the hardwood. Driving the lane, forcing turnovers, creating steals, hitting the three, you know those are the kinds of things the fans enjoy.

Froebe led the way with the first bucket, then it was Kennedy hitting a couple baskets and in a matter of 35 seconds the Lady Railers had scored three field goals and regained the lead, 31-28. Froebe was feeling it when she called for the ball, ready and set to shoot the three. Her trey gave Lincoln a 36-28 lead with 6:03 on the clock.

Froebe would go on to make a couple more threes in the quarter and Kennedy Lolling would also score again from long range. Bossingham chipped in five more points herself here. When it was all said and done the ladies had put up a 32-point third quarter and held a 57-46 lead over Southeast.

Froebe also sank four free throws in that third quarter under pressure when a technical foul was called on Southeast. There was a little confusion among the officials as Froebe first went to the line shooting one and one and after making both of those she made two more free throws on the actual technical foul. Nonetheless, four free points for Lincoln that added cushion to the lead.


Lauren Block fights for the ball and wins vs. Southeast. Block scored four points in the paint in the fourth quarter for the Lady Railers.

Williams padded the lead for Lincoln when she opened the final quarter with a three and then her senior counterpart, Lauren Block also poured in two key baskets during the quarter as Lincoln started to run away with the game.
