GARDEN CITY — After trailing by five at half and digging a nine-point hole midway through the fourth quarter, the Lady Redskins battled all the way back to tie the Garden City Lady Buffaloes in the final minutes only to falter in the waning seconds in a 42-38 loss that ended a 29-game winning streak.

Ashley Carrillo hit a three-pointer with 2:31 to play to cut Garden City’s six-point lead in half, and with 1:05 to play Halle Payton nailed a three to tie the game.

But Garden City drew a foul with 25.3 seconds to play and made both free throws for a 39-37 lead.

Aubrey Warden Was fouled with 8.3 seconds to play, but she made on of two free throws, leaving Liberal trailing by one.

The Lady Redskins fouled Garden City, and the Lady Buffaloes only made one of two shots for a two-point lead.

The Lady Redskins put together an in-bound play in the final four seconds, but the in-bound pass glanced off Carrillo’s hands, and the Buffaloes were able to secure the 42-38 win.

Carrillo led the Lady Redskins with 23 points.

“It didn’t come down to the last play,” Liberal coach Brandi Fowler said. “It was a culmination of the entire game. There were some things I didn’t do as well as I should as a coach. The girls fought hard. We will use it as a learning experience and we will grow from it. The girls in that locker room are fired up and ready to get after it.”

Liberal (6-1) will travel to Dodge City (7-0) Friday to face the Red Demons.
