Woodward, Okla. —
Enid and Woodward split a high school basketball doubleheader at Boomer Fieldhouse on Tuesday night.
In their final game before the holiday break, the Woodward boys put together one of the season's best efforts, routing the Plainsmen in the second half to win 66-46.
The Boomers led by 4 at halftime, but dominated after intermission as back-to-back three-pointers by Kaleb Roach turned a four-point game into a 10-point bulge.
Woodward spent the 4th quarter padding its lead.
Roach led with 17 points and Taylan Iliff had 16, with 12 coming in the second half.
Ty Richey added a dozen points and Garrett Owen had 6, including a key 3-pointer in the third period.

Courtney Chelf led Enid with 24 points before fouling out late in the game.
Mercedeez Bell had 15 for Woodward.
The Boomers started strong and led 10-3 at one point before Enid rallied and took a 15-12 lead on a Chelf three-pointer.
Enid led by 5 at halftime and pulled away until the final 3 minutes of the game when the Boomers battled back, closing to 57-51 after a Haylee Bates free throw with a little over a minute left. Bates had 14 points in the game.
