Last year, the Liberal Redskins had 10 seniors on the team, and when they graduated and Scott Hinkle moved into administration, Ryan Petty had the task of rebuilding the team with a new squad.

And for a quarter and a half, the Redskins were able to compete toe-to-toe with a talented Holcomb Longhorn team, but the length of the Longhorns started to wear down the Redskin late, and Liberal fell 59-45.

The Redskins used the long ball early with Cameron Riley, Ethan Hatcher and Trystan Bigham connecting on threes in the first quarter, and the Redskins were able to keep pace with the Longhorns in a 13-13 draw after the first period.

The Redskins took a lead in the second quarter, and late in the second quarter the Redskins had a 25-23 lead.

But the Longhorns were able to end the quarter on an 8-1 run, and the Redskins trailed 31-26 at half.

The Redskins couldn’t narrow the gap in the third quarter, and Holcomb was able to extend the lead to 44-36.

Liberal had to foul to try to cut into the Holcomb lead in the fourth quarter, but the Longhorns were able to make their shots at the line and extend the lead in a 59-45 win.

Riley led the Redskins with 12 points. Ethan Hatcher scored nine.

Liberal will look to even up the record Tuesday when the Redskins travel to Guymon to face the Tigers.
