Late collapse keeps Keys girls from 3rd at Old Fort Classic

FORT GIBSON — Sand Springs' C.J. Scott drove the lane for a layup with 1.2 seconds left as the Lady Sandites beat Keys 38-36 Saturday evening in the third place game of the Old Fort Classic.

Sydni Rainbolt scored a game-high 20 points, including 10 in the second quarter, as the Lady Cougars closed the first half on an 11-2 run to lead 25-20 at halftime. Keys led until midway in the fourth quarter when Monica Foster scored to give CPHS a 36-35 lead. Neither team scored for the next 3:20 until Keys' Ali Nolan made one of two free throws to tie the game at 36.

After two missed free throws from Rainbolt with 55.7 seconds left, the Lady Sandites held the ball for the final shot which resulted in Scott's game-winner. Keys actually had a chance on a full court pass, but Taylor O'Donnell missed a layup as time expired.

Neither team shot well. CPHS was 15-of-44 from the field while Keys was 12-of-37, including 1-of-8 in the fourth quarter.

The Keys boys coaching staff failed to report information on its game.
