Hasal sisters light up scoreboard as Raiders top Mossdale

Lincoln's Jessica Hasal drives the baseline Friday night at Manteca High where the Raiders knocked off Mossdale, 38-29 to claim the MUST girls championship.

Mikayala Hasal hit two 3-pointers and finished with a game-high 14 points Friday night at Manteca High where the Lincoln 8th grade girls basketball team topped Mossdale, 38-29, to claim the Manteca Unified Student Trust basketball championship.

Hasal’s sister, Jessica, wasn’t too bad herself, as the younger sibling drained another triple and finished with nine.

Manveer Hundal was pivotal in the post, collecting a number of rebounds and finishing with seven points.

“We knew Mossdale was going to come out strong, (head coach) Kirsten Thompson does an excellent job,” Lincoln head coach Erik Hasal said. “I’m happy that they’re a first-year school and they came out. Defensively, we did an excellent job. Everybody finished when they needed to finish.

“We stepped it up, I’m proud of the girls. It’s been a long season, but they improved from beginning to end, which is beautiful.”

Jazlyn Simon was outstanding for the Jaguars, turning in a number of pretty plays and finished with 13 points.

Chanel Johnson racked up a number of boards and dropped seven, while scrappy Marissa Elliott was lights out on the defensive end and finished with four.

Jessica Hasal’s first three made it 5-2, Lincoln, early on, and Mikayla’s three moments later made it 13-5.

Lincoln took a 26-14 lead into the break and looked to be on cruise control.

But the Jaguars refused to fold in the second half and pulled to as close as seven before the Raiders wrapped it up down the stretch.

Lincoln finished the season 21-1 and 10-0 in divisional play, while Mossdale finished 21-2, and 9-0 in the Southern Division.
