Earlsboro's Brady Sheets slips between two Asher defenders for a shot.

The Tuesday Earlsboro at Asher basketball game gave both schools reason to celebrate.

Earlsboro's Lady Wildcats shook up the Lady Indians with their impressive full court press defense, which gave the Lady Wildcats plenty of chances to score in their 60-37 victory.

The Lady Wildcats worked as a team to get the win, as seven players put points on the board.

Leading them was Sierra Streater with a third of the total points at 20. She also had the most three-pointers in the game with four.

Following Streater was Alexis Coon, who had 13 points and three three-pointers.

The rest of the Earlsboro scorers were: Tahnya Kennedy, 8; Marianna Siqueiras, 7; Lacy Haynes, 5; Hannah Lena, 4; Sierra Smith, 2; and Anesah Lindsay, 1.

The Lady Indians had a harder time putting points on the board.

An exception to that, and scoring almost half of their points was Aleixis Francis with 17.

No other Lady Indian had more than six points, though.

Victoria Frankovich had six; Kathryn Dixon and Kayla Easter-Rogers had five points each; Jordan Odell and Jesica Stamford had two points each.

This win brought the Earlsboro girls to 4-1, while the Asher girls fell to 1-2.

While the Asher girls tumbled against Earlsboro, the Asher boys dominated with an 80-47 win.

Patch Hamilton and Bryson Martin each scored 18 points; Hamilton had eight two pointers and two free throws, and Martin had four three pointers and three two pointers.

Mike McDonald also had a high scoring night with seven two-pointers and a free throw for 15 points.

The rest of the Indian scorers were: Cameron Grissom with eight, Tray Odell with six, Juston Melton with five, Jake Dobbs with four, and Tahlan Hamilton, Joseph Kirkwood and Trace King with two each.
