Lady ‘Cats keep winning

BY Mark McCoy

LINCOLN — The Ellsworth Lady Bearcats easily defeated Lincoln, 49-14, Friday in Lincoln. The Lady Leopards, normally one of the most competitive teams in the Northern Plains League, has had to contend with an epidemic of bad luck this season.

“Injuries are never an excuse,” said Lincoln head coach Steve Crist. “But this season we’ve suffered a season-ending knee injury, a hyperextended knee, a broken wrist and some major ankle sprains along with the normal minor injuries. I’ve never had such a season.”
