GAME RECAP.
Things didn’t start out very smoothly for the Linn girls’ final home game on Tuesday against Onaga. While Onaga is second from the bottom of the Twin Valley League with a 1-8 league record, the Buffaloes were on fire in the first half of the game, making almost every shot they took from the inside and outside. They went up 14-9 on the Bulldogs after the first quarter. Linn suffered from foul trouble, but were able to inch back and tie the game at 20-20 for the first time with 3:13 left in the first half and finished with a 25-27 deficit by halftime. Linn fell behind in the third again, but then took off after tying the game 36-36 with 2:14 to go in the quarter. They finished on a nine point run to end the quarter up 45-36. Onaga challenged in the fourth quarter, but after going up by 13 at one point, Linn won 57-48.
