L&T staff report
ENID, Okla. — What a ride the 2010-2011 season has been for the Beaver Dusters.
Unfortunately, the ride has come to an end for Beaver as the Dusters fell to Okeene 40-33 on Friday evening in Enid’s Chisholm Trail Expo Center.
Beaver got off to a quick start as Cole Trippet opened the contest with a monster 3-pointer to give the Dusters (19-10) and early advantage.
But Okeene’s athleticism was hard to overcome.
The Dusters got down 9-4 and coach Brian Stalder called a time out after Beaver had turned the ball over, setting up a monster trey by the Whippets.
But the Dusters surged back and Samuel Becker hit a 3-pointer to tie it at nine after Kalen Gable had cut it to 9-6.
Beaver jumped up 13-9, but the Dusters had a pair of shots blocked by the Whippet defense, which gave the Dusters a hard time all night.
Okeene tied it at 13, but Beaver got two free throws by Samuel Becker to give Beaver a 15-13 lead before the Whippets hit a 3-pointer to give them the lead 16-15 at the half.
The Whippets started to assert themselves in the third quarter, but Beaver went on a 7-0 run that stretched from the third into the fourth and cut it to two points before the Whippets were able to pull away.
Cole Trippet led Beaver with 15 points, Becker 12 and Kalen Gabel four.
