Glencoe boys top Frontier in regional semifinal

KELLYVILLE, Okla — The Glencoe Panthers were only up by one point going into the second half but pulled away to an 80-63 win over Frontier.

The fourth quarter sealed the deal for Glencoe. The Panthers held the Mustangs to only four points and put up 29 of their own.

Glencoe coach John Lazenby gave Frontier credit.

“That Norman kid had 20 points at halftime and (Talon) Harris finished the game with 26,” Lazenby said. “Those were two outstanding performances. We’re tickled to get out with a win.”

Lazenby said his team was more selective with their shot selection in the second half.

“We weren’t sharing the ball well in the first half,” Lazenby said. “We had an eight- or nine-point lead in the first half but we took some bad shots and let them back in it.”

Glencoe advances in the Class A regionals to play the winner of Drummond and Strother at 8 p.m. Saturday in Kellyville. Frontier will play in the consolation game against Stonewall at 3 p.m. Friday in Kellyville.
