Sunday, February 5, 2012

Fouls, turnovers hurt the Warriors as they fall to 0-2.
The Lincoln-Sudbury girls basketball team will have to wait a few more days for a chance to earn its first victory of the season, as the Warriors fell to the Newton North on Tuesday, 53-40. “I didn’t really say anything (after the game concluded),” said Lincoln-Sudbury coach Liza Feldman, when asked about her overall thoughts on her team’s performance. “We’ll talk about it tomorrow (because) I’ve got to process it a little bit.” As for Newton North, this particular contest was a tad bit more enjoyable to digest, as the Tigers not only earned their first victory of the season, but first-year head coach Linda Martindale earned her first official win with the Tigers as well. “It feels great,” she said. “It feels great to win a game on defense…

The Warriors fall 68-56 to Westford Academy.
Two offensive spurts starting both halves faded, and with it, the Lincoln-Sudbury girls basketball team's hope of beginning the new season on a winning note. But despite the Warriors' 68-56 loss to Dual County League-foe Westford Academy Friday night, coach Liza Feldman was pleased with how her youthful squad performed. “With a fairly new team against a very strong team, I thought we held our own and it’s good for our kids to know that that was a winnable game,” she said. “It’s a great starting point.” The Warriors, who graduated six seniors last year and have three freshmen on this season’s squad, blazed out to a 10-3 advantage to start the contest. During that stretch, junior Ashley Lutz scored five of her game-high 20 points. But L-S …

Acton-Boxborough advances to the final of the Division 1 North Sectional Tournament.
WESTFORD — The Lincoln-Sudbury girls' basketball team's postseason run came to a heart-breaking end in overtime of the Division 1 North semifinals on Tuesday. After upsetting tournament favorite Revere on Saturday, the eighth-seeded Warriors were eliminated following a 44-41 loss to Dual County League Large rival Acton-Boxborough at Westford Academy. “Down the line for us it was execution,” said L-S coach Liza Feldman. “We spent a lot of time on the perimeter, but towards the end we got a little more aggressive and attacked the basket. We just had to weather the storm and be the last team to make a run, but that did not happen tonight.” With the teams entering overtime tied 37-37, A-B junior Elizabeth Belanger scored five points to help …

No. 8 Warriors soar into quarterfinals of the North Division 1 Tournament.
Teammates Iliana Quadri and Ashley Lutz helped the Lincoln-Sudbury girls' basketball team make a bold statement in its postseason opener with double-digit scoring performances on Tuesday. Scoring a season-high 26 points, Quadri helped the eighth-seeded Warriors pull ahead early and hold a game-long lead on their way to a 74-44 home victory over No. 9 Medford in a first-round game of the MIAA North Division 1 Tournament. “Iliana is a smart player who takes good shots and she came ready to knock them down,” said L-S coach Liza Feldman. “If we are patient, we can get our good shooter good looks. We just had to get the team functioning and patient.” L-S advances to play either undefeated No. 1 Revere or No. 16 Lynn English (4-9) in the …

Warriors now wait for seeding in MIAA tournament.
Sometimes the shots are just not falling. That’s what happened to the Mansfield High girls’ basketball team during the first quarter of the Mansfield Roundball Classic championship game against Lincoln-Sudbury Tuesday night at the James Albertini Memorial Gymnasium.

Strong first quarter enough to hold off Red Raiders.
The Lincoln-Sudbury girls basketball team chalked up an impressive 58-38 victory over sixth-ranked Wellesley Friday night at home, sending their senior squad home happy on Senior Night. A 9-0 run to open the game was just the start for the Warriors, who led the Red Raiders (15-2) by 18 after one quarter, by 16 at the half and by 18 after the third quarter. Wellesley showed a lot grit, cutting its deficit to within 11 in the fourth quarter, but key free throws down the stretch by L-S (13-5) thwarted any hopes of a stunning comeback.

Warriors clinch playoff berth with win over Waltham.
The depth of the Lincoln-Sudbury girls basketball team has been one of its strengths all season long. It’s fitting, then, that the team clinched a spot in the playoffs Friday night with a win over Waltham when two of its top players were sidelined with injuries. “It was a really good team win,” said senior Katelyn Wright, who didn’t play after injuring her foot in Tuesday’s win over Acton-Boxborough. “We have two starters out, so that means we need a lot of people to step up, and I think everyone did a really good job stepping up tonight and showing us that everyone is a threat in our lineup.” “I think [the injuries] would kill some teams,” added coach Liza Feldman. “It’s a credit to all the kids on the team who’ve been working hard and …

Despite leading by 10 points with four minutes left in the fourth quarter, the Warriors fall 67-56 to the undefeated Lions.
Up 10 points entering the final four minutes, the Lincoln-Sudbury girls basketball team had maintained a lead for the length of an entire quarter. A pair of 3s by Newton South teammates Kayla Burton and Sophie Bikofsky would change everything. Outscoring the Warriors 14-2 in the final 3 1/2 minutes of regulation, the undefeated Lions would force overtime on their way to a 67-56 victory over host L-S on Friday. “I am really proud of the way our team played and I thought we played with great intensity,” said L-S coach Liza Feldman. “We know we had a lot of chances, but you have got to hand it to Newton South. They turned it on when they needed to” Tied 56-56 with 1:30 remaining in overtime, Bikofsky, a senior, stepped 3 feet back from the 3-…
