In a matchup between two of the better middle school girls basketball programs, the Garden City Abe Hubert 7th graders took a 3-game sweep of Liberal West, but not without a fight. The night began with the West C-team falling in a 12-8 nail-biter, followed by the B-team falling 16-15. The Abe Hubert A-team jumped to a big 23-7 lead at halftime and withstood a furious West rally before posting a 37-23 win over the Lady Warriors.

The Lady Warriors scored the game’s initial basket — a shot by Brittany Granger — and trailed just 7-5 at the end of the first.
West’s Megan Larkin tied it at 7 early in the second period. But the Lady Hawks went on a 16-0 run the remainder of the second quarter to take a 23-7 halftime lead, and led 31-11 at the end of the third.
A stifling defense, especially by Jayme Flowers, gave the Lady Hawks the advantage.
But with Flowers in foul trouble, West took control in the fourth, out-scoring Abe Hubert 12-6. Larkin led West with eight points, Cennedee Burns added six, Granger five, Sidney Shiflet and Jessica Cisneros two.

Mitzi Mesinas scored to cut it to 15-14 and Alexis Peterson hit the game-winner for the Lady Hawks.
