Kiowa regionals

The Kiowa Cowgirls advanced to the regional finals after a runaway win against Maysville. They join the Crowder Lady Demons and Pittsburg Lady Panthers on getting opening wins to advance to their respective regional finals.

The Kiowa Cowgirls overcame a late scoring start to rumble out to a 68-19 victory over Maysville in the opening round of the Class B regional tournament on Saturday.

In the opening minutes of the game, both teams’ defenses didn’t allow a single bucket for either side. It wasn’t until Brasen Hackler stole an inbounds pass from underneath the Maysville bucket and popped it in three minutes into the first quarter that the Cowgirls broke the ice.

But once the ice was broken, the Cowgirls became red-hot on offense. They scored 31 points in the first half, while the Kiowa defense held the Lady Warriors to just six points.

That momentum carried the Cowgirls to the win, setting up a regional finals battle on Tuesday at 6 p.m. in Stringtown — and an automatic qualification for the area tournament.

CROWDER 54, WRIGHT CITY 44

Crowder is heading to the regional title game after pulling ahead in a heated battle with Wright City to take a 54-44 win at Rattan.

After the Lady Demons opened up to a 13-2 lead, Wright City rumbled back to make it a slim deficit at the half.

In the second half, both teams began trading buckets and vying for the lead. But the Lady Demons used their experience and determination to hold strong, and pushed themselves to create a small cushion between them and their opponents.

But Crowder never stopped battling, and firmly swung the pendulum its way to take the win and advance to the regional final game on Tuesday at 6 p.m. in Tushka.
