SaberCats cruise in first round

Moore boys earn spot in semifinals of JNIT

(Continued)

MOORE —

Dottie Henning and Monique Jackson paced Lawton with 10 points each.

Southmoore will face No. 15 Choctaw at 7 p.m. in today’s semifinals of the JNIT. With a victory, it will make it's third consecutive tournament championship game this season. But it has yet to claim a title.

"We been to the championship each tournament we have been in," Tucker said. "We just have to keep playing well, get the win tomorrow and get the win Saturday."

 

Muskogee 71, Moore 38: The Lions held a 7-4 lead in the first quarter. The Roughers ran off 20 unanswered points to end the period and take a 27-7 advantage, MHS was unable to recover.

Moore tried to make Muskogee work, but Kelsey McClure was too much for them. The Oral Roberts University commit scored 15 points in the win.

Amanda Patterson posted 14 points, all in the first half, for the Lions.

"I think we played good as a team," Patterson said. "We worked the ball around. We got open looks. We didn't always hit the shot, but we are getting there."

 

Eisenhower 42, Ponca City 32: The Lady Cats had no answers for the Eagles’ Crystal Polk. The sophomore forward had her way in the paint from the opening minute. She racked up 19 points in the process. Briana Underwood added 6 for the Eagles.

Kendall Dunn led Ponca City with 12 points.

Choctaw 65, Tahlequah 60: Tahlequah trailed 17-4 early in the contest. It looked like Choctaw was on its way to a blowout.

However, the Lady Tigers stormed back in the second quarter with hot 3-point shooting and defense. Choctaw led 31-28 at halftime.

With five seconds left and the game tied, Choctaw turned the ball over, giving the Tigers the final shot. However, they couldn’t get a shot off and the contest went into a second overtime.
