Woodward boys upend Weatherford, 54-47

Woodward, Okla. — Woodward's boys turned back a determined Weatherford Eagle team for a 54-47 Western Conference basketball victory at Boomer Fieldhouse on Tuesday.

In the girls game, 4th ranked Weatherford raised its record to 13-0 with a 66-29 win over the Boomers.

Earlier in the year, the Boomers handled Weatherford pretty easily on the road, but the rematch was a battle from the start.

Weatherford led 7-6 after one quarter and it was tied 17-17 at the half.

The Eagles still led 32-31 until the final minute of the third period when three-pointers by Trevor Collier and Taylan Iliff gave the Boomers the lead for good 37-32.

Weatherford didn't get closer than 3 in the fourth period, but the Boomers weren't able to pull away either with their largest lead 8 points.

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.

Chandler Roof led the Eagles with 20 points and Riley Torrey scored 17.

Woodward got 10 points from Mercedeez Bell.

The Boomers are 2-9 on the year.
