GAME STORY: Jim Ned rallies past Bishop Lynch for PKC title, Wylie finishes third

Trailing Dallas Bishop Lynch 24-17 at the end of three quarters Saturday at Hardin-Simmons University’s Mabee Complex, the Jim Ned Lady Indians needed a spark to keep the Friars from claiming their second Polk-Key City Classic title in as many years.

And as so many Jim Ned teams have done in the past, they found it on the defensive end of the floor.

Stifling Bishop Lynch’s halfcourt sets with their effort and aggression, the Lady Indians turned several steals into a game-tying  7-0 run and they outlasted the Friars from there for a hard-fought 28-26 win.

The victory capped a strong day for local and area teams as Wylie topped Seminole 49-35 in the third-place game, Cooper claimed fifth place with a 45-35 win over Burleson and Abilene High narrowly missed a win in the consolation championship, falling 48-45 to Lubbock Coronado.
