Pioneer’s Jennifer Fichera had nine points.
Chelsea's Riley Singleton led all scorers with 16 points and Grace Sauers scored 10 points as Chelsea outscored Lincoln 29-22 in the second half.
"It was a very physical game," Chelsea (13-6, 9-3 SEC White) coach Todd Blomquist said. "We executed pretty well, we were able to get the ball inside to Riley."
Arie Cargor led Lincoln (12-7, 6-6 SEC White) with 14 points and Jaslynn Rollins scored 10 points for the Railsplitters.

Dexter (17-2, 11-1 SEC White) coach Mike Bavineau said his team's passion on senior night got the better of them early, but their defensive pressure later helped them secure the victory.
"Senior night is always an emotional time, so once we got through that we settled down and played well in the second and third quarters," Bavineau said. "Our intensity was good and we were able to get some steals ... We had some solid scoring so it helped ease the emotion of the game."
Ypsilanti led just 7-6 ater one quarter, but gave up just two baskets in the next two quarters for a 24-10 lead, then finished off the win with a 14-6 fourth quarter advantage.
Jasmine Jones led Ypsilanti (13-6, 7-5 SEC White) with 10 points, while Megan Spagnoli had five points for Adrian.
"We came out sluggish. It was a slow start and a lack of energy for us," Ypsilanti coach Chris Slater. "We weren't knocking down shots, we didn't execute offensively and took a lot of bad shots."
Manchester senior Jesse Coltre led her team with 22 points, including a school-record six 3-pointers, as the Flying Dutchmen stayed undefeated in Cascades Conference play at 13-0, 18-1 overall.
"Jesse has been our main scorer, and I don't know if Senior Night inspired her, but she got into a rhythm," Manchester coach Cori Castel said. "She had at least one every quarter, and it was nice to see her maintain that confidence. It was her night to shine."
Three Manchester seniors led the team in scoring, with Taylor Manders recording 17 points, eight rebounds, seven assists and five steals, and McKenna Erkfritz adding 12 points and six rebounds.
Nastassja Chambers finished with a season-high 20 points to help Arbor Prep finish their regular season with a 16-4 record. Amaka Chikwe scored 16, and Zakiya Wells added 14 as Ypsilanti Arbor Prep (16-4) built a 49-14 halftime lead.
"Chambers set the tone in the first quarter," said Arbor Prep coach Rod Wells. "She was making good decisions with the ball, and she was making her jumpers tonight."
Abby Salata scored 10 points to lead Whitmore Lake (2-17, 2-12 Tri-County).
Ypsilanti Willow Run's Shamaria Canada scored a team-high 10 points.
"We were only down 12 at halftime, and then we had just a ton of turnovers," Willow Run (8-10) coach Cliff Russell said. "We thought we could make a run in the third, but Ferndale turned up the pressure and was more aggressive in the second half. We didn't respond, and in the fourth we turned to our bench to get them some minutes.
Washtenaw Christian’s Jurnee Tipton scored a game-high 12 points, grabbed 16 rebounds and had nine steals, leading the Wildcats past Westland Huron Valley Lutheran.
“We wanted to come out and maintain a good game,” Washtenaw Christian coach Bob Trevino said. “They are one of those teams we enjoy playing, because it gives us an idea of where we are.”
Washtenaw Christian (10-6) outscored Huron Valley Lutheran 12-8 in the third quarter and 9-3 in the fourth.
