Thursday BB: Liberal sweeps pair at Dodge City

We was due to be a clash of two Top 10 teams in Class 6A Girls Basketball, and in the end, the No. 2 Liberal Lady Redskins managed to show why they're a state title contender.

Machia Mullens scored 15 points to lead three Lady Redskins in double figures as No. 2 Liberal used a 10-0 run to pull away from No. 10 Dodge City, 54-41.

Katie Horyna added 14 points and Aubrey Warden 10 for Liberal (5-0), who have passed all of their 2019 tests and will be off now until the calendar turns to January.

Chidera Okoro led Dodge City with 15 points, while Kisa Unruh added 14 for the Red Demons, who fell to 4-1 on the season.

Other Score:

Moscow 64, Deerfield 17


Liberal 55, Dodge City 52

The Redskin boys used a 30-22 scoring edge in the middle two quarters to help withstand a hot hooting second half by the homestanding Red Demons to pick up a road win in the WAC opener for both teams.

AJ Ramirez had 12 points and six rebounds for Liberal (3-2), while Braxton Hyde added 11 points, four rebounds and four assists for the Redskins. The game featured four ties and four lead changes.

Liberal expanded on a 12-11 first-quarter edge to expand their lead to 42-33 at the end of the third quarter. Late in the 3rd and into the fourth quarter, Dodge City (0-5) used a 15-2 run to get back into the game, but Liberal managed to hold on to get the win.

Cooper Scheck had a game-high 19 points for Dodge City, while John Johnson added 13 points and 11 rebounds.

Both teams shot 38 percent for the game, and around 50 percent in the second half, but the Red Demons turned the ball over 23 times in the setback.
