Strong 2nd half sends Sequoyah past Henryetta

Local hoops briefs

HENRYETTA — Caisen Green scored 17 points to lead Class 3A No. 5 Sequoyah to a 58-51 win at Henryetta on Saturday night.

"It was definitely a gut-check tonight after losing last night," said Sequoyah coach Jay Herrin, whose club lost to Jay, 65-61, on Friday night.

After already handing Henryetta an 81-64 defeat earlier in the year, Sequoyah's rematch with the Knights was chippy from the start. Herrin was slapped with a technical foul after pleading his case that one of his players — Kris Collins — was punched in the mouth in the first quarter.

"That woke us up," Herrin said after Collins returned to the bench to be treated for blood coming out of his mouth.

The Indians (16-3) trailed at the end of the first quarter (13-12) and at halftime (23-21), but they rallied in full force in the second half. Sequoyah outscored 3A No. 10 Henryetta (13-5) 14-10 in the third quarter and 23-18 in the final period.

"It was a very physical ball game," Herrin said. "We had to go deep into our bench tonight."

Providing help on offense for Sequoyah was Elijah Tucker with 11 points. B.J. Leach chipped in with 10 points, and Kyle Sanders added nine points.

"Kyle Sanders had an excellent game," Herrin said. "He defended their best player when Zach (Parish) wasn't."

Sanders and Parish limited Chet Caywood to 10 points until the Henryetta guard added 12 to his total late in the contest.

In the girls game, fifth-ranked Sequoyah used a 18-point performance from Audrey Ballou to post a 63-46 win over Henryetta. Cenia Hayes tossed in 11 points for the Lady Indians (18-1), who won their 16th straight game.

"it's a win and we'll take it," Sequoyah coach Larry Callison said.

Both Sequoyah teams will return home Thursday to host Broken Arrow's junior varsity teams.
