Prairie Home girls fall to No. 1 Southwest Livingston 75-34
Prairie Home boys basketball coach Dalton Armontrout said the 71-67 overtime loss Thursday night against Brunswick in the semifinal round of the Keytesville was especially tough to swallow.
Of course the Panthers were lucky to be in the ballgame while trailing by as much as eight going into the final period. However, in the final eight minutes, Prairie Home rallied back with a 23-15 advantage to tie the game at the end of regulation at 60-all. The Panthers also led by as much as five in overtime but couldn’t hold the lead. Brunswick outscored Prairie Home 11-7 in overtime.
“We had the last shot and missed in regulation,” Armontrout said, “and then we went to overtime and had a five point lead with a minute left and couldn’t hold the lead. I was happy that the boys didn’t give up and came back, but we know that we have to be better down the stretch. Defensively, we didn’t defend the paint very well as they got most of their points inside. Offensively, we didn’t attack the rim like I had hoped. We settled.”
Winn had 33 points and Worley 27 for Brunswick.
For Prairie Home, who dropped to 10-8 on the season, Creed Flood finished the game with a double-double with 27 points and 15 rebounds. He also had five assists and four steals.
Ty Stidham had 14 points, one rebound and one steal while Kassen Lock added 11 points, two rebounds, two steals and two assists, Blake Petsel nine points and three rebounds, Clayton Pethan four points, 15 rebounds, six assists and one steal, Luke Stewart two points and one rebound and Alex Rhode with one rebound and one assist.
