Angelina Clay scored 19 points, fought for eight rebounds and had five assists as the Lowell girls’ basketball team beat Lincoln 53-43 in an Academic Athletic Association game Wednesday.

Though Clay’s stats are impressive, it was the Cardinals’ ability to attack from multiple angles that gave them the edge. Two Lowell players joined Clay in double-digit scoring — Anna Bukareva contributed 11 points and Kristina Lum added 10.

“To be perfectly honest, I thought we had a little more depth,” coach Aki Kuwada said after Lowell improved to 20-1 overall, 6-0 in the AAA. “Our post can score better than their post. That will continue to be the difference.”

Lincoln (11-8, 2-2) stayed within reach the entire game, trailing 30-22 at halftime. The Mustangs opened the second half with an effective full-court press led by Hallie Meneses, who snagged four steals in the third quarter. Lincoln outscored Lowell 14-11 in the third and only trailed by five entering the final period.
