CLEARVIEW -- 
The Lutheran West Lady Longhorns took on the Clearview Clippers on a Wednesday evening. After winning their previous game by one with a buzzer beater on Saturday to beat Fairview and losing to the Clippers earlier in the season at home by 17, the Longhorns were determined to come out with a win. Knowing that the Clippers like to block shots and push the ball, Lutheran West knew they would have to not force shots if they were going to win.

During the first quarter the Longhorns stayed even with the Clippers and found themselves down one, 18-17. However in the second quarter the Longhorns succumbed to Clearview’s fast paced tempo as the Clippers lengthened their lead.
Down 34-27 at the half, the Lady Longhorns tried to keep their positive attitude, however in the third quarter Clearview continued to beat West up and down the court. The Longhorns slowly lost their grip of a close game as they forced up shots and rushed the offense.

Down by 14 at the end of the third, the Lutheran West could have given up, but they fought through with determination and outscored the Clippers 26-13 in the fourth.  Their efforts were not enough even as junior Lindsey Tomola hit a three at the buzzer to lose to the Clippers by one point, 66-65.

The high scorer was Tomola with the game-high 25 points, followed by juniors Lindsay Thomas with 16 and Marissa Spelich with 7.
