Liberal Girls Overcome Cold Shooting Night in Hooker

Brock Kappelmann - January 4, 2020 5:51 am

The Liberal girls leaned on old reliable again Friday night.  They needed their defense to save them from an off night offensively. The Lady Red went 3-24 from three point range.  Liberal played for the first time in 15 days and showed some rust in a 40-23 win over a scrappy Hooker team Friday night in Hooker.

Hooker jumped to a 6-0 advantage in front of a big crowd as Liberal played in Hooker’s gym, constructed in 1996, for a first time.  Liberal grabbed a 12-7 lead after one quarter but led just 16-13 at halftime.  The Lady Redskin took a 25-14 lead in the third quarter and led 29-21 after three quarters.  Liberal took a 36-22 lead with 4:13 remaining after a Machia Mullen “and 1”, a subsequent Liberal rebound of the missed Mullens free throw, and a Reece Hay three pointer for a five point possession.  The Lady Red out scored Hooker 24-10 in the second half.

Machia Mullens led LHS with 11.  Aubrey Warden chipped in eight.  Hollie Stalder had 15 to lead Hooker.  Liberal was 3-24 from three point range and 5-6 from the foul line.  The Lady Bulldogs were 1-8 from three point range and 8-16 from the foul line.

Liberal is 6-0 and Hooker is 4-4.  The Lady Redskins play at Hays Friday while Hooker plays at Turpin Tuesday.
