Pacers held off, Plainsmen held down vs. Ike


ENID, Okla. —


The Plainsmen might have taken a step back from any momentum gained from a 56-38 win over Ponca City Friday.

Enid was only 14 of 38 from the field for 36.8 percent and the Plainsmen committed 21 turnovers. Braden Rogers was the lone EHS player in double figures with 10.

Lawton Ike was dominant inside and outside with Jamey Woods leading the way with 18 points, followed by Douglas Moore with 15, Robert Chapman with 12 and Keyshawn Perkins with 10.

The Plainsmen were within respectability at halftime when a trey by Marcus Moore cut the Eagles lead to 30-22. Lawton Ike, though, opened the second half with a 12-3 run and never looked back.

“As long as we’re competitive and the guys keep fighting, I can live with score,’’ said Enid coach Ryan Wilkinson. “They’re a really good team and when the shots are falling you can’t do anything about it.

“But toward the middle of the third period, we had some guys giving up on us and they’re started not playing with the same intensity, which we hadn’t seen too many times this year. I’m really disappointed in that aspect.’’

Wilkinson went to his bench “trying to find guys wanting to play hard.’’

“This is not a game that we can use as a learning tool,’’ Wilkinson said. “We might have done some good things in the first half, but toward the third period, we had guys starting to doubt themselves and give up on the process, which is taking things backward.’’

Wikinson did praise Lawton Ike’s athleticism, which he said “was causing us to alter out shots ... they blocked some shots which might have gotten in our head and made us a little passive. We still had battled until the middle of the third period.’’

EHS will be off until Jan. 28 when it hosts Woodward. Wilkinson vowed to go back to work Monday “and fix this stuff.’’

The Plainsmen will go to the TCU-Oklahoma game Wednesday in Norman.
