Split Decision

Sequoyah boys, Chelsea girls pick up season-opening wins

SEQUOYAH — Claremore Sequoyah head coach Nathan Smith is thankful that Blake Mills has three more years in the Eagles’ basketball program.

On Tuesday, in the season opener, Mills drained his first seven treys and tallied a game-high 26 points as Sequoyah soared past Chelsea, 75-39 at Olan Graham Fieldhouse.

Inside 30-feet, Mills was a perfect 7-for-7 from the perimeter. The 5-foot-6 guard had six treys in the first half — including four in the opening quarter — as Sequoyah built a 36-15 halftime lead.

Mills, who played 3 1/2 quarters against Chelsea, missed his first trey with 5:01 remaining in the third quarter.

Sequoyah converted 11 treys against Chelsea’s 2-3 zone defense.

Alex McGoffin joined Mills in double figures with 16 points.  Logan Moody also contributed with nine points.

All 10 Sequoyah players scored in the opener.

Sequoyah led Chelsea, 60-19 after the third quarter.

Drew Tyler led the Chelsea offense with 10 points and Dalton Feathers added eight.

Girls

Chelsea 53, Sequoyah 45

Chelsea senior guard Faith Wooten scored a game-high 15 points and senior point guard Danielle Wolf had 12 to lead the Lady Dragons past Sequoyah, 53-45.

Chelsea led 15-11 at the end of the first quarter and clung to a 27-23 lead at halftime.

The Lady Dragons tallied four treys in the first half and five for the game.

A three-pointer by Callie Wangsgard in the opening stages of the third quarter pulled Sequoyah within a point at 27-26.

Chelsea, however, rode the senior leadership of Wooten and Wolf for 12 second-half points to pull off the season-opening win.

Abby Shoate also scored in double figures with 11 points for Chelsea.

Aubyana Matussak led Sequoyah with 14 points and Courtney Nugent had 13.

  • 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.
