Wildcats slash Zizzer's hopes 51-47: L-R Boys Basketball team 6-0


On Friday, Dec 16, the Logan-Rogersville Wildcats took on the West Plains Zizzers. Both teams had a burning passion for winning on that cold night, but only one would win. So, whose fire burned brighter?

After four quarters of dashing, dodging, jumping, shooting hoops, and sounds of pep bands and cheers, the game was a close call to the bitter end. Still, thanks to #23 Curry Sutherland and #5 Ross Lawrence scoring six free throw shots, the Wildcats secured their sixth win against West Plains with a final score of 51-47.

“We knew it was going to be a battle. West Plains has a tremendous size in athleticism and strength. They play a kind of matchup zone that we play, so it was a battle of who could survive, be tough and make some shots,” shared Head Coach for the L-R Varsity Boys, John Schaefer, after the game.

The stats from the game are as follows:

#2 Junior Stewart McDonald 8 pts- three 2-pointers and two free throws

#4 Senior Torin Trent 3pts- one 3-pointer 

#5 Junior Ross Lawrence 16pts- one 2-pointer, four 3-pointers, and two free throws

#10 Senior Hayden Sircy 5pts- one 3-pointer and two free throws

#22 Senior Brody McNiel 4pts- two 2-pointers

#23 Senior Curry Sutherland 13 pts- four 2-pointers and five free throws

#44 Senior Keegun Daniels 2pts- one 2-pointer   

As of writing this article, the L-R Wildcats (6-0) will play Willard (1-5) on Tuesday, Dec 20, then Liberty/Mountain View (1-3) on Thursday, Dec 22. Keep up the excellent work, Wildcats!
