Redskins Limp Into Break with Loss at Perryton

Brock Kappelmann - December 16, 2017 7:39 am

As Liberal head coach Ryan Petty put it, this was a tough loss.  Perryton beat the Liberal Redskins 41-39 Friday night a Ranger Gym in Perryton.  Petty says Liberal’s trouble taking care of the ball led to their downfall.

Perryton led 9-7 after one quarter and the Redskins rallied for a 17-15 halftime lead.  The Angry Red led 21-18 early in the third quarter before the
Rangers went on a 17-4 run to lead 35-25.  LHS fought back to make it 35-33 and 39-37.  But when Syris Dunlaps half court shot at the buzzer sailed left of the target, Perryton had their first win over the Redskins since 2014.

Cameron Riley scored 15 while Lee Hatcher and Dunlap scored eight a piece.  Liberal was 12-20 at the foul line while Perryton was 10-22.  LHS was 3-16 from three point range while PHS was 5-16.

The loss snaps Liberal’s six game winning streak against Perryton.  The Redskins are 2-3 at Christmas break.  They play this same team January 2 in the Big House.  Perryton is 5-4.
