AGRA, Okla. — The Agra boys basketball team will get a chance to avenge last weekend’s loss to Wetumka in the consolation finals of Class A regional tournament thanks to an 84-64 blowout of Oaks Friday.

The Bearcats (21-5) got off to a quick start, outscoring the Warriors 22-7 in the first quarter to set up the blowout.

“We opened up well and just ran with it after that,” Agra coach Chad Dickerson said.

Helping the rout of Oaks was a balanced attack by the Agra offense. The Wildcats had five players score in double figures and another two nearly reach that plateau. Garrett Jones led way with 16 points, followed by Dalton James with 15, Matt Reedy with 14, Blake Beard with 13 and Tyler Rossiter with 10. Jordan Walters added 9 for Agra, while Drake McEntire chipped in with 7 points.

“We played well this evening,” Dickerson said. “The boys have been working real hard every day.”

Agra will face Wetumka at 3 p.m. Saturday in the consolation finals for an opportunity to advance to the area tournament next weekend.

“It’s want-to right now,” Dickerson said. “We want to head to area, we want to have one more week at least.”

Yale boys beat Colcord

CHOUTEAU — The Yale High School boys basketball team overcame a slow start to beat Colcord 77-51 Friday in the Class 2A Distirct 2 semifinal.

Yale (20-4) will face Chouteau-Mazie in the district championship at 8 p.m. Saturday in Chouteau.
