Twice as Nice for Lady Redskins in Colby

KSCB News - January 17, 2013 8:33 pm

After maybe their most miserable start of the season, the Liberal Lady Redskins pulled off one of their most unlikely comebacks in recent memory winning a 59-58 double overtime heart stopper over Scott City. Liberal wins their opening round game of the Colby Orange and Black Classic for the first time since 2010 and plays Friday at 3 p.m. against Hugoton or Palmer Ridge.

Liberal dug a 19-2 hole against at Lady Beaver team who is now 1-7. LHS trailed 29-15 at the half. But the Lady Redskins used a full court press in the second half to pull back into striking distance. The Lady Skins trailed 35-29 after three. Jai Chapman’s buzzer beating bank shot from the left of the lane tied the game at the end of regulation. Liberal led 50-47 in OT after a Megan Besecker three pointer. But after LHS went 0-3 at the foul line, Scott City’s Shanaya Hoeme sunk two charities to send the game to double OT. LHS trailed twice by six in double OT including 58-52. But a Besecker three from the right corner pulled Liberal to within one. After Scott missed two free throws, Chapman got the rebound and raced to the other end for a shot on the high lane which resulted in a two shot foul. After missing the previous four foul shots, Chapman sunk both free throws to give LHS the lead with 2.2 seconds remaining.

Liberal is 4-6. Chapman scored a career high 29 and Besecker added 17.
