Perkins-Tryon, Cushing girls teams advance to state tournament

SAND SPRINGS, Okla. — An undefeated season and 56-27 win over Sequoyah earns the Lady Demons a spot in the state tournament.

Perkins-Tryon (25-0) led the game from the start and only allowed 3 points to Sequoyah in the second quarter. The Lady Demons were up by 15 points going into the second half and continued to increase their lead.

McKenzie Stanford scored the team high of 17 points. Jordan Gorham and Lacey Shipp combined for 24 points.

The Lady Demons will find out early next week who they will face in the state tournament.

Girls

Pawnee 45, Wellston 39


ENID — A slow start didn’t stop the Lady Black Bears from defeating Wellston 45-39 in the area consolation bracket.

Pawnee coach Jeff Tatum said it was a tough game. Wellston jumped out 16-5 in the first quarter and Pawnee was still trailing at halftime. However, the Lady Black Bears took the lead in the second half, scoring double digits in both quarters.

“We played a little better defense and only gave up six points total in the second and third,” Tatum said.

Shayla Brien scored 22 points for the Lady Black Bears. Pawnee will advance to play Ripley at 1:30 p.m. Saturday.

The Cushing Lady Tigers also won Friday, clinching a trip to the Class 4A state tournament with a 62-52 win over Cascia Hall.

Ripley 50, Mooreland 38

ENID — The Lady Warriors secured a 50-38 victory over Mooreland in the area consolation bracket after being down by two points going into the second half.

Ripley had a low scoring first half but made its shots in the third and fourth quarters. The Lady Warriors put up 36 points in the second half and held Mooreland to 22.

Whisper Lefthand led the team with 15 points. Naomi Eslinger and Kylie Ladd each had 13.

Boys

Chouteau-Mazie 55, Yale 39


CLAREMORE — Too many fouls for the Bulldogs and free throw opportunities for Chouteau-Mazie led to Yale’s 55-39 season ending loss in the area consolation.

Yale (24-6) played an even first half and was down by six going into the fourth quarter but couldn’t keep up with the Wildcats at the end.

“We didn’t do a good job scoring at the other end,” Yale coach Rocky Kennedy said. “They just did a good job defending us.”

This was the second loss for Yale in the playoffs, the first also being to Chouteau-Mazie in the district championships.

Konner Fowler led the Bulldogs offensively with 18 points and Jake Winterbottom added 13.

The season also ended for Pawnee and Perkins-Tryon boys teams.

The Black Bears fell to Merritt in the area consolation bracket at the Chisholm Trail Expo in Enid, 53-41.

In Sand Springs, the Demons lost to Oklahoma Christian School 48-35.
