Cushing Lady Tigers roll past Glenpool; Morrison girls hold off Cashion

Cushing's boys squad also gets big victory.

CUSHING, Okla. — The Cushing Lady Tigers showed up to play Tuesday night, defeating Glenpool 61-15.

Cushing started out strong and scored big, while holding their opponents to single digits in each quarter. In the second quarter Cushing only allowed Glenpool to score one point.

Senior Che’Ron Lewis led the team with 19 points. Mattea Jackson also went into double digits with 11 points.

Cushing coach Brad Crace said the win was a collective team effort.

“We’re just sharing the ball and playing really good defense,” Crace said. “Our post game is really good. Those guys have really stepped up for us.”

The Lady Tigers (7-0) will try to continue their winning streak when they travel to play Mannford on Friday.

Morrison 54, Cashion 50

MORRISON — Morrison had a close win against Cashion on the Wildcat’s home court.

Andi Will led the Wildcats with 13 points, followed closely by Jaybree Wood with 12. This win evened up Morrison’s record, 2-2.

Morrison head coach Luke Kruse said this has been the teams best game so far.

“We played very well,” Kruse said. “ Our press was working very well and that got Cashion off balance.”

Morrison will play at home again on Friday against Waukomis.

Pawnee 43, Hominy 20

PAWNEE — The Pawnee Black Bears came away with another win against Hominy Tuesday night, improving to 3-1.

Pawnee head coach Jeff Tatum said he is pleased that his team is improving.

“We’ve got young kids contributing, and we’re still waiting on our seniors to pick up where they left off,” Tatum said.

Tatum said it will take time in games and practice.

“Fortunately we still have some time before playoffs,” Tatum said.

The Black Bears will face Woodland on Monday. Woodland is Pawnee’s one loss for the season. Woodland beat Pawnee in the championship game if last weekend’s Oilton Tournament.

“Hopefully we can learn from some mistakes and avenge a loss,” Tatum said.
