Falcon 61, Pueblo South 53

“We struggled a little bit in the first half, basically offensively with turnovers,” Falcon coach Greg Cox said. “We had to put it together in the second half.”
Chances Matlock led the way with 20 points for the Falcons, who were without post player Daniel Synder (hip flexor).
“Chances Matlock had another big night for us,” Cox said.
Falcon’s Shaun Livecchi added 14 points and Nick Lenhard scored 10.

Doherty fell to 5-4 after falling behind 14-2 in the first quarter of this one. Lincoln only outscored the Spartans 36-34 over the final three quarters, but the Lancers’ strong first quarter was too much for Doherty to overcome.
