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.
