Earlsboro Splits Last 4 Games


February 7, 2019

The Earlsboro Wildcats were not easing into the finish line as they saw four of their final five regular season games in a span of a week, including a back-to-back-back. All four of those games were against conference opponents. Those games featured three home stands against Bowlegs, Paden, and Sasakwa, and one road match against Mason. A lot of ground could be made up in that week, but so could a lot be lost.

It was about a 50/50 split for the Wildcats as they won two, lost two. Against Bowlegs on Jan. 29, Earlsboro's Elijah Maher caught fire as he went seven of 13 from deep in route to a team-high 25 points. Micah Anderson had himself a busy night as he put up nine points, seven rebounds, and six steals. Earlsboro won the home conference battle 74-45.

Two days later on Jan. 31 Earlsboro played its first of a back-to-back-back. Starting off with a 60-47 home loss to Paden, splitting the season series with them after a 62-59 Wildcat victory back on Dec. 8, Earlsboro took to Mason the next day. Earlsboro won 44-34 behind Anderson's 15 points as he was the only Wildcat to reach double figures. The Wildcats went 10-13 from the free throw line that day, including Johnson going 4-4.

Earlsboro came back home on Feb. 2 for their last home game of the season against the Sasakwa Vikings. Despite Anderson's double-double with 12 points and 10 rebounds, along with Maher's team-high 13 points, Earlsboro came up just short, 58-49. Earlsboro's Brady Sheets decided to crowd up his stat line with seven points, five assists, and six rebounds.

Earlsboro has its last game of the season on Feb. 8 when they play the Porum Panthers. The Strother Yellowjackets, common opponents of each school, defeated Earlsboro 72-59 and Porum 58-43 earlier in the year.
