A dominant fourth quarter pulled Cashion within two wins of the state tournament.

The Lady Wildcats on Thursday outscored Chouteau- Mazie 14-3 down the stretch in a 47-36 victory at Cleveland.

Lauren Jenkins scored 23 points in the win, which came in the Class 2A area consolation quarterfinals.

It moved Cashion into Friday’s semifinal against Wewoka (after press time). Wewoka defeated Fairland in Thursday’s other elimination game. The Cashion-Wewoka winner advanced to Saturday’s area consolation championship and the right to play for a spot in the state tournament.

Cashion (13-14) trailed by three at halftime, but tied it up entering the fourth quarter.

Megan Shafer and Reese Williams scored 11 points apiece for Cashion.

Wildcats’ run ends

Nathan Nabav i ’ s last- second attempt couldn’t find its mark as Cashion saw its season come to a close.

The Wildcats fell 38-35 to Warner on Thursday in a 2A area consolation quarterfinal.

“We didn’t shoot it well all playoffs and it finally caught up to us,” coach John Hardaway said. “We did everything else pretty well.”

Cashion (13-14) shot just 28 percent overall, which included that same percentage from 3-point range (4 of 14).

Still, the Wildcats were able to close most of a 10-point deficit it had entering the fourth quarter.

Nabavi, who led Cashion with 11 points, got the final shot.

“It was a decent look,” Hardaway said. “It was just a night we didn’t hit much and they had some guys hit shots they don’t normally make.”

Chance Acord added nine points for Cashion while Kamden Miller added eight.
