Lady 'Cats edge NWOSU for Homecoming victory

CLAREMORE — The Rogers State women’s basketball team registered a 62-59 homecoming victory over Northwestern Oklahoma State on Saturday afternoon at the Claremore Expo.

The Hillcats started slow, missing their first three shots of the game and fell behind 6-0 before Logan Froese hit a layup to put RSU on the board. However, the Rangers followed with a 6-2 run to take a 10-point lead. With 15 minutes to play in the half, the Hillcats found a rhythm as they put together a 12-2 run to even the score at 16 apiece. With just under two minutes to play in the first half, Leah Smith hit a jumper to give RSU its first lead of the game. She went on to score three more points at the charity stripe to give the Cats a 32-28 lead at the break.

The Hillcats couldn’t hold onto the lead to start the second half as the Rangers used a 7-0 run capped off by a conventional three-point play by Kierra Gilmore to take a one-point lead. The game was tied three times before RSU would take over the lead for good, building their largest lead of nine with a three pointer by Leah Smith with 3:30 to play. The Rangers battled to the end as they managed a 10-4 run to end the game but the Hillcats held on for the win as Kelby Fritz converted a pair of free throws to seal the victory.

Smith led the Cats with 14 points while Fritz and Froese tallied 12 points apiece to round out the double digit scorers for RSU. The Hillcats shot 38 percent from the field and 77 percent from the free throw stripe.

Renee Golliday led the Rangers with 15 points. NWOSU won the battle on the boards 41-38.

Rogers State (2-0) travels to Springdale, Ark. on Monday as the Cats take on Ecclesia College at 6 p.m. Audio will be streamed live on the Hillcat Network at www.rsuhillcats.com/live.

  • DSC_0114web.jpg SOCCER: JV Lady Zebras edge Verdigris, 2-1

    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.
