Boys BB: Indians rally past Bulldogs in 4th

It took a bit to get going on offense, but the Wichita County boys basketball squad managed to do something that hasn't happened a lot this season - go into Herndon Gym and beat Syracuse.

The Indians, however, overcame an early deficit and outscored the Bulldogs, 16-9, in the fourth quarter to win, 49-46, and hand Syracuse its first home loss of the season.

Syracuse (14-6) had won its first eight games at Herndon Gym this season, and jumped out to a 13-7 edge at the end of the opening eight minutes on Thursday, but the boys from Leoti (13-7) used the spurt in the fourth quarter to pull out the win.

The Bulldogs were paced by Damian Ramirez, who scored 18 points, while Austin Plunkett added 12 points and 11 rebounds.

In other boys basketball action on Thursday:

Meade 70, Satanta 39

In a Class 1A Rolla Regional semifinal, the Buffaloes used a 50-13 spurt over the second and third quarters to pull away from the Indians and advance to Saturday's regional title game.

After a 13-all tie following the first eight minutes, Meade (17-4) used an 18-10 second-quarter edge to open up a 31-23 lead at the half, and put the game away with a 32-3 third-quarter run.

The Buffaloes will now get another shot at South Gray (18-2) for the region championship on Saturday. The Rebels advanced with a 69-32 win over Moscow in the first semifinal. South Gray won the first matchup, 62-51, in Montezuma on February 18.

Goodland 57, Scott Community 52 (OT)

The host Cowboys outscored the Beavers, 11-6, in the extra period and overcame multiple double-figure deficits to pull out a win in the regular season finale for both teams.

Goodland (3-17) also won for just the fourth time over the boys from Scott City (10-10) since 2000.

Brennan Brumbaugh scored 25 points, while Henry Cole added 13 for the Cowboys.

Parker Gooden and Hunter Yager each had 11 points for the Beavers.

Colby 57, Holcomb 44

The Eagles had three players in double figures while keeping one of the top scorers in the region under wraps as Colby closed out the regular season with a solid win at Holcomb.

Jackson Stoppell, who is no stranger to 20-plus-point games, was held to just 13 on Thursday night by the Colby defense. The Eagles (13-7) countered by placing three players in double figures - Ryan Myers had 15 points, Peyton Wahlmeier 13 and Calvin Stapp 11 for Colby.

Holcomb ends the regular season at 12-8.
