Boys: Wesleyan Christian 86, Prue 30

Make it just 10 straight wins — and a region-leading 14 wins — for the WCS Mustangs.

Led by a pair of 20-point scorers — Kael Siemers, 26, and Kade Kelley, 23 — the Mustangs (14-2) earned the home win by 56 points.

It was also the fifth straight competition the Mustangs have won by a margin of 22 or more points.

WCS (14-2) plunges into battle with a sword drawn. They scored 37 points in the first half to take control and spread out the playing time.

“I couldn’t have been more proud of the energy they showed at the start of the game,” said head coach Steven Cooks. “We trapped hard. … We flew out. … I was so proud of how we maintained our intensity and energy. We’re a pretty solid group.

The 86 points scored was a season high for WCS.

WCS is considering three more regular season games – Tuesday, at Foyil; Thursday, at Claremore Christian; and February 8, host of Mingo Valley.

Girls: Copan 50, Bluejacket 22

Bluejacket barely had a chance to catch their breath after Copan took a 13-2 lead in the first quarter and a 34-10 margin at halftime.

Elizabeth Odum and Kylee Cobb scored 12 and 10 points respectively to lead the victorious Lady Hornets (8-6), followed by seniors Abbey Davis and Gentry O’Rourke with eight each.

“Our defense was pretty good tonight,” Copan head coach Kristy Bryan said. “We had 15 interceptions. We started the game as men all over the court and then backed the girls up to a 2-3 zone. The girls worked hard, they wanted to win. They came to the field ready to win.

Bryan also appreciated the pace of the game – just 14 total fouls and 12 free throws between the two teams.

“It happened pretty quickly,” she said, noting that the last part of the match ended on a running clock. “We played good defense and made good decisions offensively.”

Copan is scheduled to play its Homecoming matches against South Coffeyville on Saturday night.

Boys: Copan 82, Bluejacket 65

Copan’s Correll Record plugged his offensive game into a high-powered generator to stun Bluejacket with a 37-point night.

Record broke the net with four three-point shots, 5 of 8 free throws and 10 two-point shots.

“I played him inside and he absorbed it and set it up,” noted Copan head coach Kevin Foreman, who saw his team improve to 7-7.

Record also felled 11 boards to notch a double-double.

Foreman also praised Zack Sharp’s contributions.

“He did really well,” Foreman said. “He gave us 11 rebounds and seven points.”

Copan controlled the play more than the final margin indicated, Foreman said.

Tyrek Millien and Chandler Bauman added 13 points each to round out Copan’s top four scorers.

Copan has improved to 5-2 in its last seven games. The Hornets are considering five more regular season games, including a home double today (Saturday) against South Coffeyville.

Next week Copan travels to Barnsdall and Foyil. The regular season finale is scheduled at home on Feb. 7 against Quapaw.
