Cowboys Snap Losing Streak With Victory Over Thackerville

Photo by Sheree Hanson

While the Ryan Cowboys snapped a long losing streak last Thursday against Thackerville, it was still a difficult weekend for the Ryan squads.

Last Thursday, Thackerville edged the Cowgirls, 36-33, while the Cowboys scored a 42-39 victory over the Wildcats on Raymon West Court to end a six-game skid.

Ryan traveled to Healdton last Friday and fell in both contests. The Lady Bulldogs took advantage of poor shooting by the Cowgirls to gain a 43-26 verdict.

Healdton, 18-2 on the year and ranked 18th in Class 2A, rolled to a 48-13 victory over the Cowboys.

Against Healdton, the Cowgirls got off to a tough start falling behind the Lady Bulldogs, 9-1, after one quarter.

All of Healdton’s first-quarter points came on three converted long range field goals.

The Cowgirls battled the Lady Bulldogs on even terms in the second quarter and were competitive most of the rest of the game trailing by 15 points with just three minutes to play.

Ultimately it was the first quarter deficit that was too much to overcome.

Lily York led the Cowgirls in scoring with 10 points.

Coach Steve Spangler’s Cowgirls are still playing without one starter.

The Cowgirls have lost nine straight to the Lady Bulldogs dating back to the 1993 season.

The Cowboys were short-handed also as two starters were missing against Healdton with illness.

Healdton got off to an impressive start and took a 14-3 lead after the first quarter.

The Bulldogs struggled, however, in the second quarter, but the Cowboys could not trim the margin and trailed 19-5 at the half.

For the second time this season the Cowboys came out of the intermission and could not score a point. The Bulldogs went on a 16-0 run in the period for an insurmountable 35-5 lead heading into the final frame.

The Cowboys broke the scoring drought, but Healdton still managed to outscore Ryan, 13-8, to set the final margin.

The 13 points scored in the game is the second fewest in school history and is the fewest since recording only 15 points in a 1988 encounter with Sulphur.

Dawson Tomberlin was the leading scorer for Coach Judd Matthes’ squad with seven points.

The Cowboys have lost six of the last eight meetings with the Bulldogs dating back to the 1993 season.

In the game with Thackerville, the Cowgirls trailed by a 9-5 count after the first quarter and again it was hot outside shooting by the Lady Wildcats that doomed the Cowgirls.

Thackerville’s nine points came on three treys.

Thackerville was able to increase the margin to 20-15 at the half before the Cowgirls came alive after the halftime break and managed to narrow the score to 26-24 at the end of the third quarter.

In the fourth quarter, the Wildcats sealed the victory by scoring the last seven points from the free throw line. The Cowgirls could not cut into the deficit in the final frame thanks to missing three of five charity tosses.

York finished with 17 points for the Cowgirls and she was responsible for all five of Ryan’s first quarter point total.

Thackerville moved to 15-3 after this win.

The Cowgirls are 25-13 against Thackerville in the last 38 meetings, but have now lost two in a row to the Lady Wildcats.

The Cowboys established a seven-point lead after the first quarter and were able to extend the lead to 20-11 at intermission.

The Wildcats cut into the lead in the third quarter and trailed only 30-24 heading to the fourth quarter.

The Cowboys could not shake the Wildcats mainly because of a struggle at the free throw line.

For the entire game, Ryan only converted on 35% of its free throw attempts.

Skyler Parkhill led the Cowboys in scoring with 14 points and he scored five of the Cowboys’ eight first-quarter points and was the only player for the Cowboys to score in every quarter.

It was the fourth win in a row for the Cowboys over the Wildcats.

The Cowboys and Cowgirls were to have met Geronimo last Tuesday on Raymon West Court.

Both squads return to action tonight by traveling to Burneyville to face Turner for a doubleheader.

Tomorrow night will be Senior Night for the Cowgirl and Cowboy basketball teams as they play host to Temple.

Ryan will finish the regular season on Tuesday as they travel to Empire.

The Class A District Tournament will begin on February 9 at Central High

Cowboys, Cowgirls Go Winless In Bulldog Bash

The Ryan basketball squads found the going a bit tough last weekend in the annual Bulldog Bash at Healdton High School.

Neither team could capture a win in the tourney.

The Cowboys fell to Elmore City-Pernell last Thursday in a first round contest, 56-46, and then fell in the consolation semifinals to Wilson, 51-32.

It was a difficult outing for the Cowgirls as only six players were available for the first round game with Wilson and the Cowgirls lost another player in the game and eventually fell to the Lady Eagles, 37-27.

Last Friday in the consolation semifinals against Turner, the Cowgirls’ Kenzie Lewis suffered an injury in the first half forcing the Cowgirls to play with only four players most of the game and the Lady Falcons took full advantage to capture a 46-31 win.

Those four players that remained on the floor for the Cowgirls in Friday’s game were all sophomores, but they managed to outscore the Lady Falcons in the second half, 24-15, even though Turner left their starters in the game the entire way.

It was the hot shooting from the outside for the Lady Falcons that allowed them to build an insurmountable lead.

The Lady Falcons hit three three-pointers in the first quarter in building a 15-3 advantage and then hit four more in the second quarter to take a 31-7 lead into the locker room.

Juliet Spangler led the Cowgirl scoring attack with 18 points, while Lily York added 10 points. Bailey Martin contributed three points to round out the scoring for the Cowgirls.

In the Cowboys’ consolation semifinal contest with Wilson, it was also the opponent’s hot shooting from the outside that doomed the Cowboys.

Wilson managed a 14-10 lead after one quarter and held a 21-16 advantage at halftime. Three of the Eagles made baskets in the first half were beyond the arc.

In the second half, the Eagles took advantage of poor shooting by the Cowboys and built a 33-21 lead after the third quarter.

Wilson outscored the Cowboys, 18-11, in the final frame to capture the win.

Grayson Tomberlin led the Cowboys in scoring with nine points.

In the first round game with Wilson, the Cowgirls fell behind after one quarter, 13-7 and could never rally the rest of the bout with the Lady Eagles.

Wilson led, 22-9, at the break thanks to four treys. The Cowgirls battled on even terms much of the second half, but the deficit was too much to overcome.

Spangler and Lily York led the Cowgirls in scoring with nine points each. The Cowgirls had another tough night at the free throw line as they connected on only six of 14 free throws.

The Cowgirls finished with only five players as Kenzie Keith dislocated a finger early in the game.

In the first-round game against Elmore City-Pernell, the Cowboys kept the contest close throughout the first half and actually held a 25-24 lead at intermission.

But, the Badgers went on a tear in the third quarter as they outscored the Cowboys, 19-0, to take control of the game with a 43-25 advantage.

The Cowboys managed to trim the lead in the fourth quarter by outscoring the Badgers, 21-13.

The Badgers did much of their damage at the foul line hitting 23 of 35 free throws, while the Cowboys connected on only 13 of 24 charity tosses.

The game was marred by 45 fouls.

Tomberlin led the Cowboys in scoring with 11 points.

Ryan will play host to Thackerville tonight on Raymon West Court before traveling to Healdton for a doubleheader with the Carter County School on Friday.

Next Tuesday the Cowboys and Cowgirls return home for a matchup with Southern Eight foe Geronimo.
