First Place Hays Holds Off Redskins

Brock Kappelmann - February 10, 2018 5:58 am

The Redskins came out firing on homecoming.  But it wasn’t enough as the first place Hays Indians beat the Liberal Redskins 68-57 Friday night on homecoming in the Big House.  The Indians remain undefeated in the WAC while the Redskins are without a WAC win.

Liberal jumped out to an 18-17 lead after one quarter.  LHS led 30-25  in the second quarter before the Indians used a 7-0 run to lead 32-30 at halftime breaking a string of six straight games the Redskins had led at half.  Hays led only 42-40 with 3:49 to play in the third quarter.  The Indians led 48-42 after three.  Hays quickly made three straight three’s early in the fourth quarter to pull away.  The Indians were 11-29 from three point range while the Redskins were 6-21.

Kace Vongsakda scored 23 while Cameron Riley had 6.  Jordan Mendoza added eight.

Hays sweeps the season series for the first time since 2014.  The Redskins are 6-10 and 0-5 in the WAC while Hays is 11-5 and 5-0.  Liberal plays at Cimarron at about 8 Tuesday night on 1270 and kscbnews.net.
