Lawton Holds On Against Redskins
KSCB News - December 13, 2010 12:00 am
Class 6A Oklahoma Lawton led by one at halftime (23-22), built an early second half lead and then pulled the ball out in a 53-43 win over Liberal. The stategy worked the day before in a win over Garden City and worked again Saturday night in the Big House. The Wolverines (4-0) led 36-30 after three. Liberal cut the lead to four but after the physical and athletic Wolverines stripped Liberal of the ball for a layup to make it 38-32 and took a rebound away from a Liberal player for a layup of their own to make it 40-32, Lawton pulled the ball out and shot free throws the rest of the way. Liberal’s Jade Cathey scored 22 in the loss as the Redskins (2-2) lose both games of their Conestoga Classic. Liberal travels to Perryton to play Friday night on Talkradio 1270.
