Lady Coyotes head into final weekend at 14-1


With two more games in the books, the Pawnee Lady Coyote’s are showing no signs of slowing down. On Thursday, they posted a 65-53 win over host Briggsdale. The team improved to 14-1 overall with a Friday victory over Weldon Valley. The winning tally was a 71-37 blow out.

“This was one of the girl’s best games all year at both ends of the floor,” Coach Dean Smock said of the win over Briggsdale. “They moved better and got after it and played good team basketball and had one of their better scoring nights. Lyndee’ Johnston’s 25 points and zero fouls were, well, it speaks for itself.”

Seven of Pawnees’ Ladies put points on the board with three in double numbers. Lyndee Johnston led with 25 points that included two treys. Katie Klinginsmith tacked on 12 points, while Morgan Sanders put 10 points on the board. Afton Zitek added six to the tally and Emily Ellis, Lena Haun and Kerby Anderson connected for four.

Pawnee had a led Weldon Valley 22-10 after the first quarter and increased the lead in every quarter.

“Again our defense sets the tone, and the girls made it work,” Smock said. “We got a lot of good shots for a rather easy win. It puts us one win away from winning the league.”

The team is 8-1 in league play.

The Coyotes were 100 percent at the charity stripe hitting 14 of 14 attempts.

Eight Lady Coyotes put points on the board. Sanders led the scoring with 20 points. Johnston found the net for 17 points, and Zitek joined in double numbers with 10 points. Ellis tacked on eight, and Klinginsmith and Anderson each put up six. Haun and Kyndra Konig each made a pair.

A busy week awaits the Lady Coyotes with three games on tap. On Tuesday, the squad will hit the road and head to Fleming for a make-up game set for 4 p.m. On Thursday, they will travel to Boulder to face off with Shining Mountain at 6 p.m. After a day of rest, the team will host Caliche Saturday at 2 p.m.
