L&T staff report

The Redskins discovered their best chance to beat the Cimarron Blue Jays was with the long ball.

Five Redskins scored from three-point range, and the Redskins were able to overcome a slow first quarter for a 59-46 road win.

Liberal fell behind late in the first quarter, 16-11, but erupted for 27 points in the second quarter, including four three-pointers to take a 10-point lead at half, 38-28.

The scoring slowed down in the second half, and Cimarron cut the Redskins lead down to six. But Collin Ware added another three, and Deladrius Green contributed a long ball to keep the Blue Jays out of reach.

Liberal was able to maintain a 10-point lead at the end of three quarter, but when Cimarron made one final run midway through the fourth, it was a long ball from Blake Stout that pushed the lead back to nine, and the Redskins were able to make free throws down the stretch to preserve the 59-46 win.

Stout led the Redskins with 13 points including two three-pointers and was three-for-three from the free throw line.

Freshman Deladrius Green scored 12 points including a three.

Ware scored seven with two threes and a free throw, and Hayden Coker also scored seven.

In addition to Stout’s two threes, Green’s three and two threes from Ware, Jared Hasik also drained a three pointer along with Cade Hinkle. Liberal was 7-for-11 from long range.

Liberal (6-11, 1-4) will travel to Great Bend (5-9, 0-4) Saturday.
