Third quarter nightmare results in loss

Bookmark and Share

It appeared as if the Lady Jays basketball team was headed to back-to-back wins and a tournament finals, but a third quarter nightmare erased those thoughts.

Guthrie led the tournament host, Duncan Demons, 30-23 at the break, but the Lady Demons erupted for 17 third quarter points while holding the Lady Jays to just 2-points in the Duncan Chisholm Trail Holiday Shoot Out semifinal game.

Duncan held on for a 53-48 win to advance to the championship game against Norman North. Guthrie and Tahlequah will battle in the third place game beginning at 4:00.

In the decisive third quarter, Duncan hit 6-of-8 free throws while Guthrie never found the foul line. Overall, Guthrie was 6-11 from the charity line while Duncan finished 11-15.

Junior Melinda Murillo led Guthrie in the scoring column with 14 points, but got a sparked from freshmen guard Kamber Smedley and her 13 points. Mikaela Murillo chipped in with 9 and Gracynn Smith finished with seven.

Guthrie Scorers: Melinda Murillo 14, Kamber Smedley 13, Mikaela 9, Gracynn Smith 7, Page Stevenson 3, Sojo Love 2
