Zebras fall twice in Port City Classic

CATOOSA — Claremore senior guard Brett Russell scored the Zebras’ first 18 points Friday afternoon, but it wasn’t enough in a 73-44 loss to Skiatook in the consolation semifinals of the Port City Classic.

Earlier in the tournament, the Zebras lost 71-29 to Class 5A No. 1 Tulsa Memorial.

On Friday, though, Russell kept the Zebras close in the first quarter with eight points as Claremore trailed Skiatook, 18-8.

During that span, Russell converted three field goals, including a three-pointer, and was 1-of-2 at the free throw.

Skiatook, however, outscored Claremore, 27-15 in the second quarter to lead 45-23 at halftime.

Russell had 19 of Claremore’s 23 points in the first half.

Daniel Lauer also contributed with three points and Hunter Garroutte knocked down a free throw.

The Bulldogs took control inside as Jesse Haynes scored 11 of his 14 points in the opening quarter.

A.J. Surritte also countered with 17 points, while Tyson Lester drained four wide-open treys for 12 points.

The loss to the Bulldogs was the 15th in a row for the Zebras. Claremore (0-15) played Rogers County rival Catoosa in the seventh-place game early Saturday morning.

In the third quarter, Claremore only had two players score as Russell and Garroutte tallied all eight points and the Zebras trailed 55-31.

Russell finished with a game-high 25 points to lead the Zebras.

Darrius Murphy tallied seven points — all in the fourth quarter — and Garroutte chipped in six.

Lauer continued with three points, while Reid Joyner added two and Randy Williams had one to round out the Claremore scoring.
