HOLDENVILLE — Despite a dismal outing at the free-throw line, Meeker’s girls chalked up a 39-30 triumph over Holdenville Tuesday night.
The Lady Bulldogs (4-4) were just 14 of 27 from the charity stripe, including 10 misses in the second half.
“We got up 33-19 going into the fourth quarter and just kind of stopped what we were doing to be successful,” Meeker coach Clay Plunk said. “It was frustrating that we couldn’t finish it off. But it is still a win.”
Ashley VanSchuyver topped Meeker’s scoring with 12, followed by Lexi Lopez with nine. VanSchuyver, Aubrey Pruitt and Kennedy Brewster had a 3-point field goal apiece.
Bailee Padgett led the losers with 19 points. No other Holdenville player had more than four points.
Holdenville was just 2 of 8 from the line.
Meeker will be idle until Thursday, Jan. 4 when it tangles with Okmulgee at 6:30 in the Henryetta Tournament.
Spurred by a 23-point performance by Dylan Thomas, Meeker was a 57-39 victor over Holdenville.
Thomas canned two treys and hit 5-of-8 free throws.
Josh Whitfield of Meeker notched a double-double with 11 points and 14 rebounds. Gavin Hale hit all three of his free throws en route to seven points.
“Any time you play there, it is a tough environment — a small gym with a lot of noise,” Meeker coach Evan Smith said.
Meeker (5-3) won’t play again until Jan. 4 when it takes on Bristow at 8 p.m. at the Henryetta Tournament. Meeker was originally scheduled to compete in the Konawa Tournament.
