Olathe Northwest Outpaces Lady Red

Brock Kappelmann - March 8, 2019 7:25 am

Turnovers and three pointers.  Those were two of the key statistics that sent the top seeded Liberal Lady Redskins back to school on Friday.  Olathe Northwest, fresh off a sub state win over Kansas City area powerhouse Blue Valley North, kept the ball rolling leading wire to wire against Liberal and winning 57-46 Thursday afternoon at 6A state at Koch Arena at Wichita State University.

The Lady Ravens led by future Drake Bulldog Sarah Gueldner, led 15-6 after one and 29-19 at the half.  ONW hit 6-10 three pointers in the first half.  The lead ballooned to 18 41-23 in the third quarter.  The Lady Redskins did make some noise.  Behind a large and loud following dressed in red and black, the Lady Red used a 14-0 run culminated with a Katie Horyna step back three pointer to trail just 41-37.  But that was it.  The faucet turned off from that point.  Olathe Northwest scored the next four points to lead 45-37.  Liberal was at arms length the rest of the afternoon.

Olathe Northwest only committed four turnovers compared to Liberal’s 14.  The Lady Ravens led the points off turnovers category 21-7.  Olathe Northwest buried 8-16 three pointers and Liberal was just 2-12.  ONW shot 44 percent from the field and Liberal was at 38 percent from the field.

Machia Mullens had a monster game with 29 points and 17 rebounds.  Katie Horyna had 11 points and five rebounds.  Gueldner had 31 for the Lady Ravens.

Liberal finishes 22-1.  They lose seniors Whitney Hay and Kim Alarcon but return the rest of the team next season.
