Lions top 7th boys

Late rally not enough for KMS

The Lions led 25-16 after three quarters before Kingfisher made its fourth-quarter charge. That charge was led by Cade Covalt. He had just two points entering the fourth, but scored 12 in the fi nal quarter. However, Kingfisher couldn’t fully close the gap. Covalt led the team with 14 points. Dallen Barton scored fi ve, Coleman Gilles four and Ethan Karcher and Jake Reagan had three apiece. The squad is now 3-3, which includes a third-place finish at the Canadian Valley Conference Tournament.
