Regional downer

No. 7 Tahlequah routs Coweta in regional play but loses guard Randee O’Donnell in the process.


Chickasha 57, Guthrie 51 OT

Chickasha picked up its first playoff victory since 2001 by outlasting Guthrie in overtime.

Sierra Hamilton led Chickasha with 14 points, and Dominique Golightly and Alex Stewart both added 13 points.

Chickasha won the game at the free-throw line with a 28-of-31 effort. Guthrie, on the other hand, was only 11 of 21.

Guthrie was led by Melinda Murillo, who had 21 points. Micayla Haynes also tallied 10 points for the Lady Bluejays, which had beaten Chickasha twice during the regular season.

Guthrie had a chance to win the game in regulation, but Murillo missed a last-second attempt before the buzzer sounded.
