Perryton (9-6) used a 21-2 run to begin the second half and 25 free throws compared to Liberal's seven to beat Liberal 59-43 in Perryton Friday night. Liberal led most of the first half and held the Rangerettes to just three field goals. LHS led by five twice (8-3 and 14-9). The Lady Skins (2-3) got off to a slow start offensively and led just 16-15 at halftime. But the Rettes would lead 36-18 and 40-25 at the end of three quarters. LHS head coach Shane Stout received a double technical and was ejected just before the end of the third quarter. That may have sparked a furious Lady Skin rally. The Lady Red got back to within five (43-38) after a four point play by Lauren Sumner. But Perryton made enough plays in the fourth quarter to win it. LHS head coach Shane Stout says his team had a chance to build a big early lead but he credits the comeback. "Credit to the young ladies for battling back and staying composed," Stout said. "I though defensively we were great in the first half. They only hit three field goals in the first half and a ton of free throws. If we get a few more shots in the first half, I really think we would have had about a 10 point lead. We were getting the shots we wanted."
After a slow start, Justice Norah scored 22 including 17 in the second half. Lauren Sumner added 10 including three three pointers. Perryton's Lisa Rinker scored 18.
