Berryhill sweeps Sequoyah in opener

SEQUOYAH — The Berryhill Chiefs boys’ basketball team spoiled the Claremore Sequoyah Eagles’ season opener with a dominant 69-44 road win Tuesday night at Olan Graham field house.

The Chiefs rained down with 10 3-pointers against the Eagles (0-1, 0-0).

Chandler Moczygemba nailed four of those 3-pointers for Berryhill (1-1, 0-0). Moczygemba also led the team with 26 points and was 9-of-15 from the floor.

Berryhill only led 20-18 after the first quarter, but opened the flood gates and extend their lead during the game to down Claremore Sequoyah.

The Eagles’ sophomore forward George Longhorn showed promise against Berryhill with three blocks, one assist, four rebounds, while also leading the team with 11 points.

CSHS made just 17-of-48 shots from the floor, and were only 8-for-27 shooting from 3-point range.

The Eagles will be back in action on Friday at home against Dewey.


Despite a hard-fought battle, the Lady Eagles’ first home game of the season was spoiled by the Maidens of Berryhill in a 44-35 loss Tuesday night at Olan Graham Field House.

“I thought we played hard, but the girls had a lot of jitters in their first game,” Lady Eagles head coach Russell Morgan said. “We did a good job in our zone press, but struggled in our man press. We’ve got to do a better job of executing our offense at the beginning.”

Berryhill (1-0, 0-0) ended the first half with a three-point lead, 21-18, holding Claremore Sequoyah (0-1, 0-0) to eight points in the second quarter.

The Maidens’ were led by junior forward Victoria Regalado, who had a game-high 18 points.

The Lady Eagles were able to tie the game up late early in the third quarter on the shoulders of junior guard Aubryana Matussak led the team with 10-points, but Berryhill proved to be too much.

Berryhill finished on 10-0 run late in the fourth to seal their win.

Claremore Sequoyah failed to capitalize and missed 10 free throws in the game.

“Our game plan is the same every week,” Morgan said. “Every day at practice our goal is to get better, work hard and there’s no doubt that we will battle back and be fine.”
