CUSHING, Okla. —

Ripley 55, Wellston 44

WELLSTON — It wasn’t easy, but the Ripley High School girls got a hard-fought win with a 55-44 victory over Wellston Tuesday.

Jaclyn McKnight scored 23 points and Kylie Ladd added 19 for the Lady Warriors (8-1), who will face Carney Friday.

“The second half we kind of slowed it down a little bit,” Ripley coach Doug Scott said. “It was a good win for us on the road in a tough environment.”

Boys

Cushing 55, Glenpool 36


CUSHING — Cushing won their third straight game, defeating Glenpool by 19 points.

Nick Tanner was the leading scorer for Cushing with 22 points. Drew Wilson and Bingham Hightower also contributed 12 points each.

After losing their first three games, the Tigers have improved their record to 3-3. Cushing head coach Bobby Tanner said they were missing three starters at the beginning of the season because the Cushing football team was still in the playoffs.

“We kind of struggled a little bit out of the gates, but we are getting stride right now,” Tanner said.

Cushing will play against Mannford on Friday. Tanner said he expects it to be a tough game.

“It’s going to be really close,” Tanner said. “We are two evenly matched teams.”

Yale 80, Oilton 44

YALE — The Yale Bulldogs put up the baskets to secure a strong win against Oilton.

Juniors Brady Eberhart and Braxton Wade scored a combined 28 points to lead the team. Sophomore Charles Combs also had 10 points.

The Bulldogs led Oilton by 20 points after the first quarter and continued to increase the gap. Yale head coach Rocky Kennedy said the team played well together.

“We shared the ball pretty well, and they passed pretty well,” Kennedy said.

The Bulldogs (3-1) will play on Saturday against Drumright.

Pawnee 65, Hominy 21

PAWNEE — For the second time in less than a week the Pawnee High School boys basketball took down Hominy, defeating the Bucks 65-21 Tuesday.

Nathan Brock led the Black Bears (4-0) with 11 points and Gideon Gardner scored 9, but it was Pawnee’s defense that led to the rout.

The Black Bears outscored Hominy 22-1 in the first quarter before taking a 41-8 lead at the half.

“It went just about the same way as the first game,” Pawnee coach David Page said. “We worked a lot on our half-court offense in the second half. Basically, we played really well and they didn’t have their best player so that hurt them.”

Ripley 59, Wellston 30

WELLSTON — It’s rare that a single player can outscore an entire team, but that’s exactly what Ripley High School’s Caulden Greenfield did in the Warriors’ 59-30 win over Wellston.

Greenfield scored 31 points — most coming from the post — as the Warriors (7-2) jumped out to a 22-5 lead after the first quarter.

In other area games, the Frontier girls lost to Tonkawa 44-35.
