Lady Redskins beat Central High, 59-54

CENTRAL HIGH — With Christmas just a week away, the Central High Lady Bronchos were in the mood to give their fans a nice present heading into the holiday break.

Unfortunately, the Rush Springs Lady Redskins soured the mood at Broncho Gymnasium with a stifling 18-14 fourth quarter run to walk away with a 59-54 victory.

“Missed free throws and missed easy shots were what got us,” Central coach Chad Weldon said. “Rush Springs is a good team, and we didn’t do bad either. We just didn’t play good defense for about three or four possessions and they were able to capitalize on it.”

With one minute left in regulation, the Lady Bronchos put themselves in position to force overtime, being down just 53-50. But, as was the theme all night long, the Lady Redskins cashed in from the free throw line, leaving CHHS with no chance of winning.

With six seconds left, the Lady Redskins managed to seal the game with two more free throws.  

For the night, Rush Springs shot 21-of-26 from the free throw line, with the Lady Bronchos finishing 16-of-30.

“We shot 54 percent from the field and Rush Springs shot 70 percent from the field,” Weldon said. “If we make our free throws and don’t have all of those turnovers, then maybe things turn out different.”

Early on, it looked as though Central High was finally going to break the code that is the Lady Redskins defense, as CHHS held an 11-3 lead before going into the second up 19-10.

“They just started zoning us and we didn’t look good,” Weldon said. “We had 16 turnovers in the first half. That should never happen for us, and we need to see the floor better.”

With points few and far between for both teams, it was RSHS who took advantage and the lead into the locker room with a 30-28 lead at the half.

Throughout the second half it was back and forth as neither team could build a lead bigger than two points.

Leading the scoring on the evening for Central High (8-2) was Lora Lynn Loomis with 17 points, followed by Faith Harris with 15 points. Aleia Daniels scored eight on the night with Caitlyn White scoring six.

Rush Springs was paced by Jacy Cullins who led all scorers with 27 points with Taylor Jackson scoring nine points.

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.
