Lady Oilers close out 2018 with road win

The Lady Oilers are favorites in most ball games they enter. Central Plains made the short trip to Ellinwood Dec. 18 for the 2018 finale. Facing a diminished Lady Eagle squad, the Lady Oilers scored the first 19 points of the game and never looked back in an 86-15 win.

Emily Ryan was again a big factor early on with 15 points in the first quarter. Her basket just over three minutes in made the score 15-0, then she scored on a pass from Avery Hurley 40 seconds later. A Delaney Rugan basket made for the 19-0 score before Ellinwood got on the board at the 3:02 mark.

“(Coach) told us when they run the flex to just jump to the ball,” Rugan said. “We really came through on that and held them to just a few points in the first quarter and half.”
