Sulphur eliminates Lady Warriors

OKLAHOMA CITY — Despite 24 points from Kylie Looney, the Adair girls couldn’t stop a balanced Sulphur attack, succumbing to the Lady Bulldogs 59-46 in a state semifinal matchup between unbeaten teams Friday at the State Fair Arena in Oklahoma City.

After falling behind by nine in the opening quarter, the Lady Warriors closed the gap to 20-14 heading into the second period. Looney closed the first half on a 5-0 run of her own in the final minute to tie the contest at 29 at the break.

Looney hit a spot-up triple to cut the lead to two, then dropped in a layup with 2.3 seconds on the clock.

Another 5-0 run to start the second half gave Adair its biggest lead of the game (34-29) just under two minutes in.

After a Sulphur timeout, the Lady Bulldogs went on a 15-0 run to pull away.

The Lady Bulldogs were led by Ashley Hughes, who finished with a game-high 29 points – 12 of which came in the third quarter.

Adair made one last push in the fourth quarter, capped by a Rendi Rogers steal off of Hughes. Rogers finished with a layup to bring the Lady Warriors within eight (51-43) with 3:05 to play.

That was as close as Adair would get, as Sulphur converted 13 of their 18 foul shots in the fourth quarter, and 21 of their 30 for the game.

Adair attempted just eight free throws on the night, making five.

Looney was 6-13 from 3-point range. Molly Kerr added nine points and eight rebounds.

Senior Raven Campos, in her last game as a Lady Warrior, finished with six points and four boards. Fellow senior Anna Crawford grabbed four boards.

Lindsey Wengerd was Adair’s only other senior.

Both squads stood at 28-0 heading into the contest.

In Thursday’s opener, the Lady Warriors coasted to a 61-39 win over Tahlequah Sequoyah.

Kerr recorded a double-double, picking up a game-high 20 points and 11 boards. Bailey Stephens also had a double-double (11 points, 13 rebounds) and dished out a game-high four assists.

The Lady Warriors led by at least 19 the entire second half.

Kylie Looney knocked down two of her six 3-point attempts on her way to a dozen points.

Thursday

Adair Scorers – Kerr 20, Looney 12, B. Stephens 11, Crawford 6, Campos 6, Rogers 3, M. Wengerd 3.
