Sports THE JOURNAL, Thursday, March 15, 2012. B3 STATE Continued from Page - the three-point shot. Two of the three in the second quarter were drained in the final two minutes to help with a 30-27 lead at half- time. MSM finished the game with seven treys. Gorham scored 12 of the Lady Demons' 14 third quarter points as MSM had no defensive answer inside. Wensler was the other scorer as she and Gorham gave P-T another short- lived lead of 31-30 early in the quarter. MSM used a late run to gain a 43-41 lead heading into the fourth quarter. P-T didn't notch its first three-point goal until the fourth quarter and the two recorded provided critical. Stansberry drained the first one from the baseline to give the Lady Demons a 44-43 lead. After two more layups from Gorham inside, Adkism bombed another trey from the opposite baseline, which gave the Lady Demons the lead for good. MSM experienced a scoring meltdown and went without a point for just over four minutes late in the fourth quarter. The Lady Demons couldn't fully take advantage of that misfortune, especially from the free throw line. Three straight charity misses kept the Lady Rockets' hopes PIONEERS Continued from Page "We need to improve in all phases offensively. We're not hitting as well as we thought we would and we're not running the bases well or moving run- ners," Coach Holt added. "I'm a little surprised that we're not hitting any better than we are. We are struggling in so. me key spots, but we've got talented players in those spots and I'm sure it will improve." Injuries have taken its toll on SHS, not only on the varsity level but the junior varsity level as well. Senior catcher/pitcher Parker Zimmerman, a Wichita State signee, has yet to play because of a back problem. Besides Zimmerman, SHS lost Corbin Schmidt and Tyler Burnett for the season. Out for extended stays are Nick Hollman and Sam Kraybill. "We've been ham- mered by injuries," Coach Holt said. "It's hurt us on the varsity level, both with starters and backups, and it's hurt our JV team. We should get Parker back in a B1 alive as P-T was maintain- ing a 53-47 lead. Wensler finally put the game away hitting 2-of-4 free throws in the final 30 seconds that led to the 55- 50 final score. Gorham was the only player in double figures for either team. She was also rewarded for her tour- nament performance by being named to the Class 4A all-tournament team.

I feel terrible for those kids having to miss this much time. "On the positive side, we've had some guys step up for us, guys like Michael Higgins at catcher," the coach added. "He was on JV at the start of the season but we moved him up after a couple of injuries and he's played extremely well as our starting catcher." After having a Monday game cancelled, the Pio- neers returned to action this past Tuesday against Ponca City. SHS entertain Tulsa Edison for a double- header tonight, starting at 5 p.m. This weekend, the Pioneers will journey to Phoenix, Ariz., for spring break. "Overall, we're really pleased with our start, but we know we can play better" coach Holt said. "I'm looking forward to the rest of the season and I know the kids are too."

P-T opened the week with an 8-4 win at Dover last Monday. Journal photo by Rick Lomenick came in the top of the fourth before P-T took over the game. Dougan was the winning pitcher having relieved Bunch in the third inning. Dougan gave up one run on three hits and two walks. He did strike out seven. Six Demons had two hits led by Reese with his double and home run. Boles followed with his dinger and single while Dougan clubbed a single and double. With singles each were Marone, Alley, and Edwards. Against Dover, P-T scored three needed insur- ance runs in the top of the seventh to double up on the Longhorns 8-4. P-T scored two runs in each the first two innings. Dover scored in the home halves of the first and third innings for a 4-2 score. One more runs was added by the Demons in the top of the fourth for a 5-2 lead. Marone went the dis- tance to earn his first win of the season. He gave up four runs but one were earned due to five P-T errors. Marone struck out 10 and walks one. Dover scattered five hits. Boles went 3-for-4 with three singles and two runs batted in.

Against Missouri, the Tigers shot lights out from the field hitting nearly 60 percent of their shots. That helped Missouri roll to a 49-24 lead over the Cow- boys at halftime. However, OSU finished strong with a 46-39 second half advan- tage that trimmed a portion of the deficit away. Page put an exclamation point on his storied career B3 with 22 points. Williams followed with 21 while Brown added 12. The Cowboys will bring back a wealth of talent along with new recruits that will surely help. That could put more pressure on Ford to produce a winner and get the program back on track. No one can put the blame on him for what happened this season with the possible exception to the two defections. Only time will tell.
