Roberts helps lift Lomega past Garber
Senior drops 30 after Swart injury; Raiders fall in OT at Skordle Festival
Lomega needed someone to pick up some scoring slack.
Darcy Roberts stepped up.
Lomega defeated Class A’s fifth-ranked Garber 58-55 Saturday at the Skordle Festival in Enid’s Stride Center.
Roberts scored 30 points - including 20 in the second half - to lift Class B’s second- ranked Lady Raiders to a 20-1 mark.
The production was needed when junior Abby Swart took what coach Kevin Lewallen called “a nasty fall” about four minutes into the game.
The fall injured Swart’s eye and the guard was unable to return.
Lomega was still able to lead 32-25 at halftime.
Roberts had just one field goal at the break, but made 8 of 9 free throws in the second quarter.
She heated up in the third with four field goals, including a 3-pointer as Lomega outscored Garber (20-2) 20-14.
The senior helped ice the game by making all six free throws and scoring 11 points in the fourth quarter.
Hadley Ott added 11 points and Sydni Walker eight for the Lady Raiders.
Garber was led by Kayleigh Eiland’s 14 points. Alyssa Johnson and Kamilah Gray scored 13 points apiece.
Raiders fall in OT
Owen Duffy got Lomega into overtime.
Garber had too much for the Raiders once it got there.
The Wolverines held off Lomega 60-55 on Saturday in the Skordle Festival in Enid’s Stride Center.
The Raiders trailed by four points with less than a minute remaining in regulation.
Duffy made two free throws for the Raiders with 33 seconds to play and - after a Garber missed free throw - the senior tied the game.
Duffy’s putback on Lomega’s end with 13 seconds to play knotted up the game.
Kade Shaloy’s steal as Garber tried to win it ensured overtime. Once there, the Wolverines got two big 3-pointers from Colton Steinert as they outsored Lomega 10-5.
That capped a game that was even throughout.
Garber led by six at halftime, but it was trimmed to two points by the end of the third quarter as Ben Marsh heated up with three 3-pointers.
Duffy scored six points in the fourth quarter and three of Lomega’s overtime points. He finished with 12.
Marsh led the Raiders (15-6) with 17 points.
Senior Brooks Uhlenhake scored 15 and Lance Yost 10.
