‘Runner-Up Finishes’

Inola teams finish 2nd in Oologah Tournament

OOLOGAH — In a game of streaks, Fort Gibson had the best and last. The sixth-ranked Tigers outscored Inola 22-1 over the last five minutes and bolted to an 80-63 victory Saturday night in the championship game of the Oologah Tournament.

Down 14-10 in the first quarter, Fort Gibson scored 15 straight points to lead 25-14 after one period. Inola trailed 42-27 with 2:29 left in the first half, then rallied to lead 54-53 with 3:07 remaining in the third quarter.

The Tigers (9-1) again took the lead at 58-54 starting the final period before an 8-0 spree put the Longhorns on top 62-58 with 5:02 left. Ninth-ranked Inola (7-3) scored just one more point the rest of the way.

Fort Gibson atoned for a 64-54 loss to the Longhorns in the semifinals of the Inola Tournament last month.

Coach Clyde Barkley’s team appeared on the verge of a successful rally when Aaron Davis swished consecutive three-point shots, sending the Longhorns into a 62-58 lead. Fort Gibson scored the next 12 points in constructing a 70-62 edge.  

Stephen Edwards, a 6-5 senior, collected 27 points for the Tigers on 10-of-19 shooting. Tournament most valuable player Jordan London got 18 points and Chris Simpson 17.

Garrett Glass scored 15 points for Inola, Travis Hall 13, Davis 12 and Casey Gill grabbed 12 rebounds for the Longhorns. Hall and Davis were named all-tourney.

Meanwhile, No. 1 Fort Gibson raced to a 14-0 lead against foul and turnover prone Inola, streaking to a 63-39 victory in the girls championship game.

The Lady Tigers (9-0) took advantage of the Longhorns’ early foul problems to shoot 21 free throws in the first half and made 13 compared to Inola’s 2-of-8.

Coach Donnie Martin saw his team turn the ball over 13 times in the first and second periods against Fort Gibson’s pressing defense with three starters fouling three times or more.

Jayme Hill scored 16 points for the Tigers, Allie Glover got 15 and Desiree Phipps 14.

Junior guard Lindsey Byfield led Inola with 10 points.
