TYRONE, Okla.—The Tyrone Lady Bobcats got hot from outside during a fourth quarter stretch that proved to be the difference in a 46-39 victory over Texas County rival Goodwell.

A Lady Eagles basket had just given Goodwell a 30-28 lead with seven minutes left. It was the sixth lead change or tie in a five-minute span of game time. Then Tyrone got hot over a two-minute stretch that changed the game. Lesly Lomas hit a three, then Cameron Gossman followed that up with a three and a three-point play. Then with 4:15 left in the contest, Addison Williams sank one more from three to complete a 12-0 run that put the Lady Bobcats up by ten, 40-30.

Those threes were the only threes by the Lady Bobcats all night long.

Goodwell tried to get back in the game by hitting three treys to answer the run, but Gossman kept scoring, 12 of her game-high 18 in the fourth, to secure the win for Tyrone.

“We really turned things around in the fourth quarter when we got some steals out of our trap,” Lady Bobcats coach Jacob Chapman said. “Those three threes in a six possession span were big as well.”

Tyrone had plenty of opportunities at the free throw line to open a bigger lead, but went just 12 of 33 at the line. Goodwell shot just six total free throws, and made four.

At the game’s start, Tyrone was cold as ice while Goodwell jumped out to a 9-1 lead. Tyrone was particularly cold from the line, missing eight of nine free throws in the first quarter. But the streaky game continued as the Lady Bobcats score the next twelve to take a 12-9 lead with 6:40 left in the first half.

“We started off real rough-turnovers, they were beating us on the boards,” Chapman said. “We had three or four runs that were the difference. We’d score eight in a minute and then not score at all for three minutes.”

Goodwell outscored Tyrone 13-5 the rest of the half as Tyrone was held to just one field goal over the final span of the half. Goodwell led 22-17 at the break. Tyrone got back in the game with an 8-0 that gave them their first lead of the second half, 25-24.

Beyond Gossman’s 18, it was Amaris Villareal and Lesly Lomas with 8 each, Addison Williams scored 7, and Jaqui Loredo added 5.

Tyrone (4-6) will host Texhoma next Tuesday.
