Redskin Rally Falls Short in Hays

Brock Kappelmann - February 9, 2019 7:38 am

Liberal head basketball coach Ryan Petty warned his team of this.  He watched the JV and freshman get off to lethargic starts and struggle with Hays pressure.  Unfortunately for the Redskins, the same thing happened in the varsity game.  And Hays was buoyed by their homecoming crowd to come out clicking.  Hays held off the Redskins 59-54 Friday night in Hays.

The Indians, after struggling offensively in their past two game vs. Dodge City and Garden City, came out clicking Friday night.  Hays nailed four of their first six three pointers and five of their first eight.  Hays also got the foul line far more than Liberal as the Indians were 24-35 at the foul line and Liberal was 9-11.  LHS was 11-30 from three and Hays was 6-15.

Brody Sumner scored 19 to lead Liberal.  Jayden Mendoza had 13 and Braxton Hyde added eight.  Both Hyde and Syris Dunlap fouled out.

The Redskins lose their fourth straight to the Indians and lose for a second straight year in Hays.  The Indians snap Liberal’s three game win streak.  LHS falls to 9-6 and 1-3 in the WAC while Hays is 9-7 and 4-2 in the conference.  The Redskins host Dodge City (8-7, 1-2) Saturday at about 5:45 on 1270 and kscbnews.net.
