The Bear River girls basketball team dropped the hammer on Lincoln, topping the Lady Zebras, 39-21, Wednesday in a showing of the Lady Bruins' defensive prowess.

Leading the charge for Bear River was senior team captain Kaitlyn Reina with a double-double. Reina scored 18 points, nearly matching Lincoln's game total, and pulled down 11 rebounds to go with four steals.

Jennifer Alberts added eight points for the Lady Bruins, Lauren Runte scored six points, Maddi Dunn chipped in four points, and Teryn Rath grabbed eight rebounds in the win.

The win pushes Bear River's winning streak to eight games and is its second straight Pioneer Valley League win.

The Lady Bruins (15-2, 2-0) hit the court again Friday when they host Colfax.
