The charity stripe in a basketball game is often time the deciding factor in a game. It may be a last-second foul shot or just solid shooting from the line. Friday night Lynnville-Sully gave the Warhawks of North Mahaska plenty of opportunities and the result was 52-43 win for the Warhawks.

North Mahaska went to the line 26 times hitting 65 percent of the free shots. Lynnville-Sully was just 39 percent from the line hitting just 9 of their 23 attempts. More than four-dozen foul shots were taken as the umpire crew called a fairly close game. The result was two starters, one from each team, found the bench with five fouls. Several others had four fouls each.

“We were able to get to the line and hit the free throws,” said LE Moore, coach of the No. 4 ranked Warhawks. “I thought our seniors came off the bench and gave us some great minutes with starters on the bench.”
