Ty Richey carried the Boomers in the fourth period, scoring 11 of his game-high 19 points.

Collier and Kaleb Roach both hit a pair of free throws to seal the win in the final 30 seconds.

Iliff finished with 8 points, Collier had 7 and Micha Kee, Roach and Garrett Owen all scored 6.

The win lifted the Boomers to 6-5 on the season while Weatherford fell to 5-8.

For Weatherford, Cooper Morlan and Jason Nichols each scored 11.

The girls game was all Eagles from the start as they jumped out to leads of 17-2 after one quarter and 32-7 at halftime.
