    Lomega Raiders vs. Pond Creek-Hunter Panthers

Last Friday had the potential to be a banner night for Lomega’s Adysen Wilson.

The junior was sitting 16 points shy of 1,000 career points, an attainable number since she averages around 20.

However, Wilson realized on the way to Drummond that she’d taken the wrong jersey.

She eventually got the right one delivered, had to do a quick wardrobe change after the national anthem and played limited minutes in another blowout victory for the Lady Raiders.

And she scored 15 points.

With the proper uniform ready to go on Tuesday, it didn’t take Wilson long to reach her milestone.

Wilson drained a 3-pointer 35 seconds into the game to get Lomega started on a 72-42 home win over Pond Creek-Hunter.

She eventually scored 18 points as Lomega ended its regular season at 23-2. The top-ranked Lady Raiders have won 20 straight games entering the Class B playoffs.

While Wilson got her mark out of the way, fellow junior Emma Duffy continued to prove her knee injury isn’t slowing her down.

Duffy scored a game-high 24 points, which included four 3-pointers.

She had 10 points in the first quarter as the Lady Raiders got out to an eight-point lead.

She added five more in the second as the lead swelled to 43-25.

Duffy scored at least four points in every quarter.

Hensley Eaton poured in another 11 points while Sydni Walker scored eight and Darcy Roberts seven.

Raiders end regular season on win streak

It’s not quite the length of the girls’ basketball team’s, but the Lomega boys are officially riding a win streak into the playoffs.

The Raiders won their second straight game Tuesday by handing visiting Pond Creek-Hunter a 63-41 defeat to end their regular season.

Lomega, 17-8, has won two games in a row and three of the last four entering this weekend’s Class B district tournament (played after press time).

The Raiders had a tough time slowing down Pond Creek’s Corbin Burnham in the first half and it allowed the Panthers to keep close.

Burnham knocked down a trio of first-quarter treys and had 19 points at the half as Lomega led 33-28.

But Burnham had just two points in the second half and the Raiders’ runaway began immediately with a 23-7 burst in the third quarter.

Tate Ott scored eight of his 11 points in the third while Noah Snowden scored six and Blake Snowden five.

The visitors never recovered.

Riley Lumpkin helped Lomega out to the early lead and scored 10 of his team-high 14 points in the first half.

He led five Raiders in double figures.

Blake Snowden finished with 13, Noah Snowden scored 12, Ott ended his night with 11 and Dilon Fisher chipped in 10 points.
