Eagles advance past Ryan

Season ends for Waurika girls

STERLING — Waurika’s boys had been waiting since opening night to make amends, but the Eagles gained some revenge when it counted — and just by the skin of their teeth.

Austin Masoner put the Eagles ahead to stay and Mason Johnson added some insurance in the final 10 seconds Friday, as the Eagles nipped Jefferson County rival Ryan, 54-52, in an overtime game at the Class A Area II District 2 Tournament at Sterling.

When the teams had opened the season on Nov. 20, Waurika’s top seven players had performed so poorly that frustrated head coach Joe Masoner pulled his regulars in the third quarter of what became a 47-25 loss.

Two and a half months later, the Eagles rallied in the fourth quarter and then outscored the Cowboys, 9-7, in overtime to rise to 10-14 and set up a meeting with host Sterling in Saturday’s district final.

After Ryan had led 15-9 at the end of the first quarter and 25-23 at halftime, the Cowboys had a 36-31 lead going into the fourth quarter. That’s where things changed.

Getting seven points from Leo Roberts and six from Garrett Bachand, Waurika closed the gap and had a 45-42 lead, before Ryan’s G.W. Seay hit a 3-pointer with 3.7 seconds left to send the game into the extra session.

In overtime, Austin Masoner scored six of his game-high 21 points, including a drive with 10 seconds left that gave WHS a 53-51 lead. Ryan’s Lucas Ninman had a chance to tie the game with six seconds remaining, but missed the first of two free throw attempts, leaving the Pokes behind, 53-52.

One second later, Johnson sealed the deal by making the front end of a one-and-one.

The Eagles also got 15 points from Roberts and eight from Bachand. Although limited to four points, senior standing out Mason Wilkerson had a game-high 17 rebounds.

Seay led RHS with 19 points, while Ninman had a double-double, with 13 points and 13 rebounds.

Should the date for The World's Largest Garage Sale be changed from the third weekend in July to sometime in October to take advantage of cooler weather like we had this past weekend?

No. It's better in the summer cause kids are out of school.
Yes. More shoppers would come during nice fall weather.
Either time is fine.
