Free throws would be the difference in the matchup between the Lady Nado and Lady Tigers. Coffeyville trailing by three with 11 seconds left was able to get back to back steals to tie the game, but a foul as time expired would send Ella Beth from Fort Scott to the free throw line. Beth would make both free throws and Fort Scott got the win 39-37. FKHS left a lot of points on the court going 10-24 from the free throw line they also turned the ball over 17 times. Despite the loss first year Head Coach Anita Walker is always able to find the positive in the games she says you have to look at the small victories.
While the Lady Nado matchup was a back and forth afair the matchup between the boys teams was a little different. With just over four minutes left in the second Coffeyville was leading 16-11 and Fort Scott would go on a 23-0 run that stretched from the four minute mark of the second quarter to the four minute mark of the third quarter. The Nado was finally able to stop the run with just under four to play in the third and then would slowly chip away at the lead but still fallin to the Tigers 47-42.
The Nado are back on the road Tuesday as they head to Pittsburg to take on the Dragons.
