Ryan Petty’s first victory as LHS head coach will be a memorable one.  It certainly wasn’t easy.  The Liberal Redskins trailed by 12 in the first half and the second half but out scored Guymon 15-4 in the fourth quarter for a 46-43 win at Guymon.  It’s Liberal’s seventh consecutive win ove rthe Tigers.

Guymon bolted to a 17-7 lead and 19-7 early in the second quarter.  LHS rallied to tie the game at 22-22 and trailed 24-22 at halftime.  The Tigers came out ready for the second half taking a 36-24 lead.  LHS trimmed the lead to 39-31 after three.  Liberal went on a 7-0 run to cut the GHS lead to 39-38.  LHS finally took the lead with a Lee Hatcher jumper to lead 42-41 with 2:20 to play  and a Lee Hatcher steal and lay up made it 44-41 Skins with 1:53 to play.  The Redskins got 12 from Hatcher and 11 from Cameron Riley.  Tristan Bigham added nine.  The Redskins won despite going 10-25 from the foul line.  Guymon was only 2-6 from the line.  Grayson Wallace led Guymon with 14.
