Sophomores Sierra Streater and Mariana Siqurious netted 16 points apiece Saturday as Earlsboro’s girls outlasted Asher 46-35 to claim third place at the Pottawatomie County Tournament at North Rock Creek.

Earlsboro, up just 34-32 after three periods, outscored Asher 12-3 the last eight minutes as Siqurious led the way with six points.

Streater earned three 3-point field goals while Siqurious had one. Tahnya Kennedy, another sophomore, posted a trey among her seven points.

Earlsboro knocked down 13 of 16 free throws for 87.5%. Asher was 7 of 8 for 87.5%.

Asher’s only double-figure scorer was Alexis Francis with 20, including one trey. Alexis Johnston, who also had a 3-pointer, had seven points.

“We played OK,” said Earlsboro coach Austin Guinn. “Asher was down a girl and we didn’t take very good care of the ball. We were able to spread the ball a little in the fourth quarter.”

Earlsboro will be home Tuesday against Bowlegs.

Allen 56, Asher 37 (Boys' Third Place)

Allen outscored Asher 31-22 in the closing half.

Chad Milne tormented Asher for 31 points and four 3-point field goals. Milne had three of those treys in the second half as he tallied 20 points.

Mike McDonald led Asher with three 3-pointers and 12 points. Tray Odell posted nine points and Jordan Litson hit a 3-pointer.

Allen hit all eight of its free throws. Asher was 9 of 17.
