Fort Gibson squads punch championship tickets at Oologah

For the Fort Gibson Tigers and head coach Gary Hendrix, Friday night’s 66-58 semifinal victory over Dewey in the Oologah Tournament was all about “surviving.”

The Tigers were up by a mere two  points with 30 seconds to play.

Enter Jordan London, who stole the ball from his man and found Austin Gassaway on a fast-break for a wide open lay-up.

London wasn’t done.

He then stole the inbounds pass and was intentionally fouled. London iced the game knocking down a pair from the stripe putting the Tigers up 6 and ending Dewey’s hopes.

“We didn’t start off great,” said FGHS Gary Hendrix. “But we survived.”

London finished up the game with 20 points. Coleman Crawley had the hottest hand pouring in 24 and Rayne Cox had 12 of his own.

Fort Gibson (7-1) looks to redeem their lone loss on the season against Inola in the championship game today at 7:30 p.m.

Fort Gibson Lady Tigers used a very balanced scoring attack to down Sequoyah Claremore 68-28 in the semifinals of the Oologah Tournament on Friday.

Jayme Hill led the way for Class 4A No. 1 Fort Gibson (8-0) with 18 points while Grace Parker and Susan Kilpatrick rounded out the double-figure scorers  with 13 and 10 points, respectively.

The Lady Tigers took control of the game early and raced out to a 42-14 lead at intermission.

“We made a lot of good scoring passes today,” said Fort Gibson coach Jerry Walker. “I thought our defensive pressure was tough and our offensive rebounding was better today.

The Lady Tigers advance to the championship at 6 p.m. today and will play the winner of Inola and Oologah at Oologah High School.
