Redskins Press for Success

Brock Kappelmann - December 18, 2019 7:21 am

One game after playing a slowed down deliberate style with a zone on defense at Olathe West, the Liberal Redskins switched things up Tuesday night.  Liberal employed a full court press and aggressive defense forcing the visiting Guymon Tigers into 18 turnovers in Liberal’s 44-32 win in the Big House.  Liberal only shot 23 percent from the field but made 18-23 free throws.

It was a slow offensive start for the Redskins and the Tigers as Liberal led 7-4 after one quarter and 15-11 at halftime.  Liberal led 17-12 and 20-14 in the third quarter before the Tigers rallied to lead 21-20.  Alex Lopez buried a timely three pointer for a 23-21 Redskin lead.  LHS would never trail again.  The Angry Red led 26-25 after three and led 41-26 in the fourth.

Liberal was 6-25 from three point range but Lopez made three of them and scored 13.  Hunter Hatcher and Syris Dunlap had nine a piece and Fabian Lopez had eight.  For Guymon, Brett Fields and David Enriquez had eight a piece.

The Redskins are 2-2 and win their 11th straight against Guymon.  Guymon is 2-5.  Liberal plays at Dodge City Thursday night at 7:45 on 1270 and
