Deja Vu for Redskins in Salina

Brock Kappelmann - January 20, 2019 10:12 am

For the second consecutive season, the Liberal Redskins went 1-2 at the Salina Invitational and lost their final game to Abilene.  This became a reality on Saturday afternoon as the Abilene Cowboys beat Liberal 60-50 at Salina South High School.

The Redskins jumped out to a 10-3 lead and led 12-6.  But the Cowboys used runs of 14-0 and 17-2 to lead 20-12.  Liberal pulled to within three at the half and trailed 21-18.  In the fourth quarter, the Redskins were fouled with two free throws coming and trailing by three.  They made one but Abilene would score on the next three possessions and Liberal did not.

Jordan Mendoza scored 16 in the loss while Hunter Hatcher and Braxton Hyde pitched in 13 a piece.

Liberal is 6-5 and Abilene is 8-3.  A note on Abilene head coach Terry Taylor.  He was the head coach at Parsons which finished as runner up to the 1986 state champion Liberal Redskins.  Taylor has won 593 game in 40 years including state titles at Parsons and Augusta.

The Redskins play at Hugoton Friday night at about 8 on 1270 and kscbnews.net.
