Good, bad for MHS girls: Muskogee beats Union, loses two to injuries



Union 72, MHS 57

Muskogee led 6-2 before the Redskins answered with a 14-2 run and led 19-13 after one. They would never trail from that point, sending four Muskogee seniors off the floor for the final time with a loss.

The Roughers will take an 11-10 mark into next Friday’s regional at Union against Sapulpa in a 6:30 p.m. tipoff. Union (21-2) and Enid are on the other side with the winners playing on Saturday.

Shawn Olden, who torched the Roughers for 33 in the 69-52 win at Union in January, led the Redskins again with 17 points, but 10 of those came in the fourth quarter. His team was two points away from having six players in double figures - Abel Rodriguez had 14, Ethan Chargois 11, Carson Meier 10 and Jeff Mead and Bain Wannemacher each finished with 9.

Mead, Rodriguez and Meier each ended the game with four fouls each. Muskogee was 14-of-23 from the line and was hampered by 17 turnovers.

“A good team over there,” Muskogee coach Josh Berry said of the No. 3 squad in 6A. “You have to play sound against them. We had too many turnovers, we took some charges that didn’t quite get called. But we got to move and prepare for Friday.”

Three three-year starters finished in double figures for the Roughers: David Beasley had 17, Anthony King and Tramal Ivy 14. The other senior, Andre Biglow, had 14.

“I have to thank those guys for coming out, working, putting in a lot of time and trust in us,” Berry said. “I know they’ll be great young men in the future. I’m glad I got to coach them.”
