Third Ranked Buhler Too Much for Redskins

Brock Kappelmann - January 24, 2021 8:38 am

Liberal has lost six of their last seven after a 66-52 loss to the third ranked Buhler Crusaders Saturday afternoon at the Brick House at Salina Central.  But consider who they have played in the span.  Two losses to #1 5A Hays, a loss at #3 5A Salina South, and now a loss to #3 4A Buhler.  Throw in road losses at Garden City and Dodge City, and it has been a challenging slate for the Redskins.

The Crusaders jumped out to a 19-9 lead and led 31-17 and 33-19 before a 33-21 halftime score.  The Crusaders led 49-32 at the half.  The feisty Redskins would cut Buhler’s lead to 11 twice in the closing minutes and 56-45 with 3:30 to play and 58-47.

A.J. Ramirez led the Angry Red with 13 and scored in double digits in all three games in Salina.  Embry Williams added 11.  Izzy Garcia-Rotolo had nine for a second straight game.  Alex Lopez added seven.

Liberal falls to 3-8 and Buhler is 6-2.

The Redskins play at Gruver Tuesday night at about 8 on 1270 and kscbnews.net.
