Lady ‘Horns advance to 4A Regional Finals

Hall, Davis keep Inola boys alive with win over Poteau

WAGONER — Inola’s Stevie Rutherford isn’t quite ready to end her high school basketball career.

Rutherford had 11 points to spark the Lady Longhorns past Muldrow, 55-48 in the opening round of the Class 4A Regional Tournament Thursday night in Wagoner.

Senior guard Kaylee Peterson tallied a game-high 13 points and junior wing Kristen Mootry had 13 to keep the Lady Longhorns alive in the postseason.

Both teams battled back and forth in the third quarter, scoring 10 points each.

The Lady Longhorns carried a 37-28 lead into the final eight minutes.

The Inola Longhorns came up short Thursday night, and had to play through the loser’s bracket in order to remain alive in the 4A playoffs.

After falling to Muldrow, 70-58 in the opening round, the Longhorns returned to the win column with a nail-biting finish over Poteau.

Travis Hall led the Longhorns with 15 points and Aaron Davis added 12 to advance Inola into Saturday’s game against Fort Gibson.

Poteau led 10-9 in the first quarter, but Inola rallied with 13 points in the second quarter to trail 23-22 at halftime.

Poteau continued to maintain the third quarter lead at 37-36, but in the end, Inola pulled off the 48-46 victory.

Jay Powers scored five points, while Casey Gill and Taylor Mootry had four each to round out the scoring for the Inola starting five.

    Claremore sophomore forward Brylee Brasher may have felt a little out of position Monday night during the junior varsity game against Verdigris.
    Normally, starting in the goal for the Lady Zebras varsity team, Brasher came out of her comfort zone to start at forward for the Claremore JV.
    The position switch proved to be a great decision for head coach Robin Sutherland, as Brasher showed a tenacity on offense that led to Claremore’s 2-1 win over Verdigris.
