TULSA-The Lady Indians of Sequoyah improved their record to 16-2 Friday night defeating No. 11-ranked Class 4A Victory Christian 62-43. The Sequoyah boys were not as fortunate falling 62-57.

Angel Goodrich led the Class 3A top-ranked Lady Indians with 31 points. The Lady Conquerors had led 17-10 after the first period, but Goodrich would score 13 of her points in the second quarter as Sequoyah would come back to knot the game at 25 at the intermission.

“We had a little trouble getting in sync in the first period, but got things together to tie the game at the half,” said Lady Indians Coach Bill Nobles. “We put together a special defense to stop Spanich and Robinson. It was a junk defense. We put Angel on Robinson and held those two to 20 points.”

The contest continued to be close in the third period as the visitors slowly jumped into a 43-38 advantage going into the final stanza.

“Victory was pretty successful running the zone on us, but switched to man-to-man in the second half,” said Nobles.

The change really took effect in the fourth quarter as Sequoyah went on a 19-5 run to win easily 62-43.

“Our girls showed good poise,” Nobles said.

Following Goodrich in scoring was Shawna Singleterry with 17. Cassie Moore had a half dozen points, followed by Brea Brewer with 3, Lorin Hammer 3, and Jamie Loy 2.

Hannah Spanich and Christine Peterson each scored 11 points to lead Victory (14-4), followed by Andrea Robinson with 9, Micheala Brannon 6, and Brittany Creedon 6.

A poor second quarter would doom the Indians in the boys contest. Victory Christian led 16-12 after the opening frame, and would increase their advantage to 34-23 by intermission. Sequoyah (10-8) outscored the Conquerors by 6 points in the second half, but could not pull out the victory.

“I was really proud of the kids,” said Head Coach Larry Grigg. “T.J. played his best game of the season, we had to play most of the game without Soap and that hurt us, but the team really played well, I thought they did a really good job.”

T.J. Hooper led the Indians with 25 points, followed by Kyle Littlehead with 16, Mike Soap 8, Travis Boswell 3, Dallas Morrison 2, Guy McDonald 2, and Jesse Factor 1.

Victory Christian was led by the combined effort of Corey Stewart and Danny Blanco, both pouring in 17 points. Robert Crawford followed with 9, Calen Freeley 8, Johnathan Wilson 5, Hunter Houston 4, and Luke Daininck 2.
