Gut Wrenching Loss in Garden

KSCB News - February 23, 2011 7:34 am

Liberal and Garden City stayed true to the recent trend between the two schools of the game coming down to the final possession. Liberal’s Jade Cathey had the ball stripped at the buzzer in Garden City’s 47-45 win over Liberal after Liberal’s 49-48 win at home January 11. Cathey scored 26 in the loss. It was a game of runs. LHS jumped out 9-0 before GCHS called timeout and went on a 14-0 run. The game was tied 18-18 at halftime. Liberal trailed 32-25 in the third quarter but went on a 13-2 run to lead 38-34. LHS head coach Drew Gruver says it’s a frustrating point of the season for the Redskins who lose for the fourth time in their past five tries. "I can’t figure out why we can’t get a win and that’s my fault because I can’t get us over the hump," Gruver said. "We’ve just got to get better. We’ve got a game left here in the regular season and then sub state. We’ve got to figure out what we’ve got to do to get better here at the end of the year."

Liberal is 9-10 overall and 3-4 in the WAC. Garden is 8-12 overall and finishes 2-6 in the WAC. The Redskins fall into a three was tie for third, fourth, and fifth with Kapaun and Andover. The Crusaders beat North and the Trojans topped Ark City last night. The Redskins host Dodge City Friday night at 7:45 on Talkradio 1270 and kscbnews.net. National Beef bought out the game so admission is free.
