Chiefs girls, Dover boys post wins

(Continued)

WAUKOMIS, Okla. — Dover 43, Waukomis 39 (B)

Trevor Howard hit two free throws to give the Chiefs a 36-34 lead in the fourth quarter, but visiting Dover would outscore Waukomis 9-3 in the final 3:31 to beat its hosts, 43-39.

“We turned the ball over, and we couldn’t stop penetration,” said Waukomis coach Dale Bledsoe. “At crunch time, they made plays and we didn’t.”

The Chiefs had turnovers on three straight possessions after taking the final-frame lead, and shifty Dover guards Bryan Pacheco and D’Vante Randle took advantage, weaving through a desperate Waukomis press to create easy Longhorn looks that would seal the game.

Randle hit a wide-open Jesus Gomez for an easy layup to give Dover a 38-36 lead, and Pacheco would hit three free throws to seal the Longhorns’ (2-6) second win.

“My two kids up top, they can drive well, and they can find the open guy,” said Dover coach Brett Holmes. “We didn’t always make the shot, but they’re pretty good at finding the open guy.”

Waukomis led 20-15 at intermission, but Dover opened the third quarter with full-court pressure that limited the Chiefs to six points against nine turnovers in the frame.

“We got a few turnovers, and we kept them from scoring,” Holmes said. “We did good with our press. We got a turnover almost every time out of it, we just didn’t do a good job of getting to it.”

Meanwhile, Dover took advantage of a Waukomis defense that was on its heels, outscoring the Chiefs 28-18 in the second half.

“Even in our half-court defense, we couldn’t stop penetration,” Bledsoe said. “They just kept getting to the hole, and we couldn’t get a stop … Tonight, they were more aggressive than we were. They made plays, and we didn’t. That’s what it came down to.”

Tyler Terrel scored a game-high 11, and Jess Click added 10 for Waukomis (4-4), which plays Friday in Morrison.

  • Jeff Mullin mug 2012.jpg Rory McIlroy: There's a new tiger in town

    His father introduced him to the game when he was small, putting a golf club in his hand when he was barely past the toddler stage.
    He fell in love with it and worked hard, improving steadily. He became a terrific junior player and quickly improved.
    He was touted as the next big thing and didn’t disappoint.
    Now, at the tender age of 25, he is a multiple major champion.
    Tiger Woods? Yes, once upon a tee time. But now those words are being spoken about Rory McIlroy.
