Ryan Petty was afraid of this. The Liberal head coach watched his team rally to shock Dalhart at the buzzer in front of a frenzied Big House crowd on Thursday night. One day later on a neutral court in Garden City, the Redskins were unable to summon the same energy in a loss. Third ranked class 4A Wichita Trinity defeated Liberal 55-38 at Conestoga Energy Arena at Garden City Community College. The game was part of Garden City’s Clarion Roundball Classic.
The game was tied 10-10 after one quarter. Trinity led 18-13 at the half as both defenses clamped down. The Knights built a 31-20 lead after three. Trinity led 39-22.
Braxton Hyde led the Redskins with 18 points. Lee Hatcher added 12.
The Redskins are 3-1 and play the Scott City Beavers Saturday night at 6 on 1270 and kscbnews.net.
