FAIRVIEW -- 
Lutheran West picked up another big win on the road Wednesday when they traveled across town to face rival Fairview. Crisp free throw shooting won the game, as Lutheran West hit 11 of 12 free throws in the fourth quarter to ice the game and pick up their third road win in as many conference road games. The Longhorns have now beaten perennial Stars powerhouse Keystone, Buckeye, and Fairview on the road to start the season. LW is 3-1 in conference play and currently sits one game behind conference leader Clearview. They play at Clearview on Saturday afternoon.
 
While Lutheran West edged their lead out to eight points thanks to four points from senior Lindsay Thomas and senior Ari Tomasula, the game was won at the free throw line in the fourth. “We’ve been spending a lot of time in practice shooting free throws all year,” said Coach Josh Campbell after the game. “You want to know how to win games? That’s how to win games.”
 
Campbell’s trust in his team’s free throw shooting prowess was apparent when he, for the majority of the final six minutes, pulled the ball out and tried to burn the clock. Fairview was forced to foul, and put Thomas and senior Lindsey Tomola on the line 12 times in the quarter. Tomola was seven for eight in the quarter and Thomas hit all four of her free throws. 
 
After struggling offensively early in the game, Lutheran West posted 17 points in the second quarter behind a pair of three pointers from senior Bre Coreno and six points from Lindsay Thomas and took a 26-22 lead into halftime.
