Redskins Run Past Indians

Brock Kappelmann - January 8, 2017 10:19 am

Scott Hinkle remembers.  During his first season back as LHS head coach, a mercy rule was offered his way.  At the time officials asked if the LHS coach wanted to use a running clock in a game at Hays.  Hinkle bristled at the possibility before this was a WAC rule as it is now.  So with LHS up thirty over #2 Hays in the fourth quarter, the game used a running clock in the fourth quarter of Liberal’s 70-42 win in the Big House.

Hays jumped out to leads of 11-5 and 14-7 before the Redskins rallied to tie the score at 16-16 after one.  Liberal took off in the second quarter taking a 39-21 lead on the way to a 39-25 halftime lead.  LHS led 62-32 after three.  Kaiden Bigham pumped in a career high 15 and made five three pointers.  Markalyn Eatmon, Kylan Thomas, and Deladris Green scored 11 a piece.

Seventh ranked 5A Liberal is 7-0 for the first time since 2005 as they open with a WAC win.  Second ranked 4A Hays is 5-1 and 0-1 in the WAC.  The Redskins host Garden City Tuesday night at about 7:45 in the Big House airing on 1270 and kscbnews.net.
