Lynx scratch back, beat Trojans to retake district lead


LINCOLN – As the days of the 2024 District 13C schedule draw to a close, the race for the coveted No. 1 & No. 2 seeds is intensifying.

Drummond won the first match with Lincoln 79-59 February 2 at home, but the Lynx battled back to best the Trojans 51-47 Tuesday night. It was just the third opponent this year that the Lynx defeated that had a winning record.

Both teams stand at 7-1 with two games left to play this coming weekend and those games will be important ones. Lincoln will face the third-place Blackhawks Friday night at Seeley Lake. Should the hosts win that match up and Drummond win its final two games (against Granite & Victor), the Lynx would slip into the No. 2 seed for the postseason tournament that begins next week in Frenchtown.

If Lincoln beats Seeley and follows it Saturday with win over Granite, they would claim the No. 1 spot.

Despite their best efforts, the Trojans could not break through against Lincoln for very long. Drummond would gain momentary leads, but would eventually relinquish them before a period’s end.

“Tonight was a good loss for us,” said DHS Boys Head Coach Levi Parsons when reflecting on the game. “We need to realize that we have a target on our backs and we have to show up and compete. We had our good moments to, but all in all it just wasn't our night. There are some things we need to get better with and some places I need to improve as well.”

Point Guard Brody Rasor led Drummond with 16 points, while Andrew Brown had 18 for Lincoln.

The Trojans final home game of the ’23-’24 season will be Friday night against the Granite Prospectors. Drummond will also celebrate its seniors that night from both basketball programs.

The Lady Trojans came out fast and then cooled off before coasting to a 48-27 win at Lincoln.

Lexi Nelson hit three 3-point baskets in the opening period, leading Drummond to a 19-5 advantage. Remi Cline took over in the second, scoring seven of her team-high 13 points as the locals took a 36-7 lead at halftime.

“The girls played very well in the first half and moved the ball well,” said DHS Girls Head Coach Logan Wilson. “They were on the attack the entire time offensively and defensively. The second half we came out with little energy.”

Nelson finished right behind Cline with 12 points. Makenna Copenhaver led Lincon with nine points.

The girls District 13C standings are a little more complicated. The Lady Trojan-Lady Prospector game Friday night in Drummond is bog for both clubs. Drummond is currently in first at 7-1 and wins in their final two games (Granite on Friday, Victor on Saturday) would secure the title and the No. 1 seed.

However, a loss would throw them into a tie with the Lady Prospectors and Granite holds the tiebreaker. A loss to their cross-county rivals could slide the Lady Trojans all the way down to third, requiring them to play in the opening round of the District 13C tournament beginning Thursday.
