Dalhart nabs emotional win at Canadian

Dalhart earned a very emotional win just three days after losing beloved high school principal Scot Wright in a head-on collision Tuesday night.

Playing with extremely heavy hearts, the Lady Wolves pulled together and gave their best effort to deliver the community a much-needed smile with a huge 34-30 road win at Canadian in a District 1-3A showdown on Friday night.

The Lady Wolves (20-10 overall) are playoff bound with the victory and pull into a first-place tie in the district race with Spearman at 6-1 while Canadian (19-10) falls a game back at 5-2.

Canadian led 21-14 at half, but Dalhart was able to chip away cutting the deficit 24-21 by the end of three. In the fourth quarter, The Lady Wolves came in clutch down the stretch outscoring the Lady Cats 13-6.

Joie Read, the daughter of Dalhart head football coach, Joey, scored a team-high 10 points with teammate Evelyn Quiroz chipping in nine. Canadian’s Cazzlee Waite had a game-high 12 points.

West Plains stuns Randall  

After suffering a tough loss to Canyon on Tuesday, the West Plains Lady Wolves rallied back getting that signature win they’d been looking for stunning rival Randall 57-54 at home on Friday night.

The win pushes West Plains (22-8 overall) to 9-3 in District 4-4A while Randall (24-6) suffers its first district loss of the season falling to 10-1. Randall also falls into a first-place tie with Canyon with a huge matchup between the Lady Raiders and Lady Eagles coming on Tuesday.

West Plains got out to a great start like they did against Canyon on Tuesday taking a 26-21 lead on Randall at the half. Unlike Tuesday, where the second half got away from the Lady Wolves, West Plains pulled together to hold off the Lady Raiders and come away with their biggest win on the year.

Dane’ja Agu-White scored a game-high 15 points to lead West Plains. Despite the loss, Randall standout Sadie Sanchez posted an impressive game-high 34 points.
