L&T staff report
GREAT BEND — It might not have been the prettiest game of the season, but it was a win for the Liberal Redskins on Friday night.
The 57-47 victory lifted Liberal to an 8-6 record.
Jade Cathey led Liberal with 15 points, Tyson Deaton 14 and Bryan Morris 13 for the Redskins, who found itself down by nine points in the third quarter.
But a 14-1 fourth quarter run helped push Liberal over the top.
Not only did Cathey lead in scoring, but his assists and blocked shots helped Liberal’s cause.
Down 41-38, Slader McVay hit a 3-pointer to tie it, then hit a jumper to give Liberal a 47-46 lead. Morris hit four straight free throws down the stretch.
The Redskins were to take on Dodge City on Saturday in a game that was originally planned for Tuesday, but postponed due to the weather.
Great Bend .................................. 56
Liberal girls ................................. 50

In Friday’s girls’ contest, Marisol Regalado led the Lady Redskins with 12 hard-fought points in the paint, and Justice Norah added 19 for Liberal, but the Lady Red were unable to take care of the Great Bend Lady Panthers.
Missed shots and un-forced turnovers were the name of the game for Liberal, who trailed 31-28 at the half. The Lady Red (8-6 overall, 1-2 in the Western Athletic Conference) led 44-39 in the third quarter but gave the game away with those turnovers and missed shots in the fourth.
