Ripley girls win Walking F. Ranch Classic

YALE, Okla. — YALE — The Ripley Lady Warriors started fast and held off the Preston Lady Pirates in a 54-43 victory in the championship of the Walking F. Ranch Classic.

"We played well. We handled their press," coach Doug Scott said. "They like to full-court you to death but we handled it well."

The Lady Warriors led 16-8 after the first quarter and 30-18 at halftime. Preston was unable to cut into Ripley's lead in the second half. Kylie Ladd led the Lady Warriors in scoring with 18. Wisper Lefthand followed with 16 and Naomi Eslinger followed with 10.

Ripley visits Coyle on Tuesday.

Davenport 61, Agra 46

DAVENPORT — Agra knocked down 8 3-pointers but it was not enough to beat Davenport for third place in the Davenport Tournament, as the Lady Bearcats fell 61-46 Saturday.

“We did a really good job,” Agra coach John Peveler said. “It was up and down a little and they just had too many offensive rebounds in the second half. They only shot 45 percent from the field but they were able to score 12 points off offensive rebounds.”

Taylor Roe led the Lady Bearcats (6-8) with 11 points. Hannah Thompson also tallied 10 points for Agra, which went into halftime tied with Davenport at 24-24.

Agra went 8 of 19 from beyond the arc, but the game slowly slipped away late in the second half.

“It really was a 3-point contest for most of the game,” Peveler said. “We’d hit one and they’d come right back and answer. At the end we tried to foul them and to their credit they made their free throws.”

The Lady Bearcats will get their shot at revenge when they return to Davenport to face Lady Bulldogs Tuesday.

Yale 46, Liberty 32

YALE — The Lady Bulldogs hit timely shots to claim seventh place in the Walking F. Ranch Classic with a 46-32 victory over the Lady Tigers.

“(Brett) Thomas hit a 3-pointer at the end of the first half to put us up by three,” coach Kevin Shellhorse said. “It was a big shot.”

From there, Yale’s lead was cut to two after the third quarter. In the fourth the Lady Bulldogs outscored the Lady Tigers 17-5. Lexi Huff led the team in scoring with 16. Thomas followed with 14.

Yale visits Oilton on Monday.
