Written for www.mcpherson-county-ks.com
WHITE CITY – The Little River boys and girls basketball teams earned a split in a pair of games on the road Friday at White City when they tangled with Rural Vista.
The Redskin boys scored a tough fought 45-38 victory, while the Lady Redskins suffered a humbling 52-28 loss.
REDSKINS USE STRONG SECOND HALF TO SCORE WIN
The Little River boys held a slim one-point, 10-9 lead after the first quarter of play before host Rural Vista doubled up the Redskin scoring, 12-6, in the second eight minutes of action and bounced out to a 21-16 advantage as they headed to the halftime break.
After Rural Vista tacked another point onto their lead in the third quarter, 14-13, and taking a 35-29 lead into the final quarter, the Redskins offense and defense came alive as they held Rural Vista to just three fourth quarter points while dropping down 16 of their own to earn the come-from-behind, seven-point, 45-38 victory.
Jayden Garrison led the Redskins by getting 15 points and seven rebounds while freshman Braxton Lafferty hit for 13 points and made five steals. Rylan Konen had a solid game as well with five points, seven rebounds plus four steals.
LADY REDSKINS SUFFER HUMBLING LOSS
The final game before the holiday break did not go so well for the Little River Lady Redskins as they were humbled by Rural Vista 52-28.
