But after a 1-8 start the Lady Cats have now posted two wins in a row.

The Lady Cats jumped out to a 17-9 first quarter lead over Lincoln County in last night’s game and never looked back.
Cline keyed Logan’s first quarter by netting three 3-pointers. The first trey gave Logan a 7-2 lead on the Lady Panthers.
Cline’s third 3 swelled the lead to 15-5. Then it was Gore’s baseline move and score which put the Lady Cats ahead 17-5. Lincoln County then scored the last two buckets to pull to within nine after one quarter.
In the second, Logan turned it on and pretty much put the game out of reach.
The Lady Cats went on a 13-5 run to begin the stanza, taking a 30-14 lead on Lincoln County. Gore finished off the run with an old fashioned three-point play at the 4:59 mark. Gore had fed Kelsey Kirk on a bucket in the paint at the 5:07 mark to make it 27-14.
