GOODLAND, KS — The high school sports season in 2018 came to a close on Tuesday night inside the Max Jones Fieldhouse when GHS basketball hosted the Scott City Beavers for GWAC play, but he night did not go the way of Goodland dropping both games. Girls falling 58-46 and boys losing 65-24.
The Cowgirls were looking to win back-to-back GWAC games after defeating Holcomb last Friday but just could not match up with the much taller Lady Beavers team. Goodland was out rebounded 34-21 and could just not get going offensive, except for junior Taighe Weeter. Weeter accounted for 65% of the offensive production scoring a career high 30 points, knocking in six of nine three pointers. No one else would score over four points or the Cowgirls who fell to 2-4 overall & 1-1 in GWAC play heading into the Holiday Break. Scott City was led by Lyndi Rumford & Emily Weathers who had 16 & 14 points respectively. Weathers also pulled down a game-high 13 rebounds as Scott improved to 4-2 overall & 2-0 in the GWAC. Scott has now won four straight over Goodland.
The night didn’t go any better for the Cowboys who were blown out by the much more athletic Beaver squad, 65-24. The 65 points allowed was the most by GHS this season while the 24 points scored was the least amount scored by Goodland this season so far. Goodland did not have one player score in double figures, but senior Mark Rodriguez led the way with 7 points & 5 rebounds. Junior Henry Cole threw in six, tying his season low. The loss puts Goodland at 0-6 to start the season and pushed their losing streak to eight games.
Both Goodland teams will return to action in the New Year on January 4th on road down in Hugoton. It will be the first road games of the season for the Cowboys.
