LG cages Bulldogs, eyes rival

LOCUST GROVE, OK — Locust Grove keeps on “Rowland” after a 78-42 road victory over Wagoner Friday night to improve to 14-2.

Pirate Tyler Rowland stuffed the stat sheet, leading the Class 4A No. 9 Pirates with a game-high 21 points. He wrangled in six steals on the defensive end, pulled in four rebounds and dished out four assists.

“He passed the ball, saw the floor, attacked the rim, shot the ball. I thought he did an extremely good job. I was really proud of his effort, I was proud of the effort all the way,” LG Head Coach Ronnie Maple said.

Rowland scored 15 of his points in the first half to help his team go into the locker room with a 47-17 lead at the break. Locust Grove big man Colton Pike did most of the damage in the second half by putting up 10 points, ending the night with 14 total. Junior Kevin Wadlow came off the bench and scored 10 for the Pirates.

Locust will continue its road trip at Salina Monday night. The Pirates outlasted the Wildcats, 51-39, in their match-up early in the season at Pirate Arena. The Battle of Highway 82 will tip-off with the girls at 6:30 p.m.

Lady Pirates roll

WAGONER — The Lady Pirates thumped fellow 4A foe Wagoner Friday night on the road, 72-44, to improve to 13-3.

Bailey Holman was deadly from 3-point range, draining five treys to lead all scorers with 20 points. Madison Davis posted a double-double with 12 points and 12 rebounds and also had four steals on the defensive end.

Either Holman or Davis has led No. 9 Locust Grove in scoring in all games but four this season.

Sydnie Pierce and Kennedy Sokoloski each put up 10 points for the Lady Pirates Fiday. Wagoner’s Kallie Smith scored 13 for the Lady Bulldogs (3-13) and Kristen Robbins added 11.
