Not this time. After two straight one point wins over the Scott City Lady Beavers the past two seasons, Liberal could not do it again. Scott City (2-10) beat Liberal 58-51 Friday night in Scott City.
Scott City led Liberal 18-9 after one quarter but the Lady Skins rallied rallied in the second quarter to take a 25-23 lead while Scott's best player Janessa Lowenthal sat on the bench in foul trouble. LHS led briefly 27-23 at the beginning of the third quarter. Scott led 44-37 after three quarters. Liberal would cut that lead to 44-43 but missed too many shots in close and were too sloppy to mount another comeback.
The Lady Skins committed 21 turnovers. Jai Chapman scored 21 and Marisol Regalado added 17 in the loss.
Liberal is 4-9 and plays at Dodge City Tuesday night at 6 on Talkradio 1270 and kscbnews.net. Coverage begins at 5:45.
