Inola boys advance to Ft. Gibson Tourney Championship

FORT GIBSON — The third time proved to be the charm for the Inola Longhorns Thursday night in the semifinals of the Old Fort Gibson Tournament.

Behind 18 points each from Casey Gill and Travis Hall, the Longhorns rolled into the championship with a 66-57 win over arch-rival Fort Gibson.

The Longhorns built a 19-10 lead in the first quarter and maintained a five-point margin at 31-26 going into halftime.

Gill and Hall got offensive help from Garrett Glass, who finished with 17 points, and Aaron Davis with eight.

The explosive Longhorns looked prime to put away the Tigers, outscoring the host team 16-9 in the third quarter and carrying a 47-35 lead into the fourth quarter.

Ft. Gibson, however, rallied behind Jordan London’s 18 points and Coleman Crawley’s 12 to score 22 points in the final eight minutes.

The third quarter scoring spree by the Longhorns, though, was enough to seal the hard-fought victory.

The Longhorns will face Bishop Kelley in the championship.

In other Ft. Gibson Tournament games, the Oologah Mustangs cruised past Muldrow, 64-44 and Bishop Kelley dropped Keys,  69-46.

On the girls side, the Oologah Lady Mustangs held off Stilwell, 48-45; and the Inola Lady Longhorns beat Bishop Kelley, 50-43.
