Share on RSS


The Nowata Ironmen and Lady Ironmen did battle on Thursday afternoon and night with different outcomes. For the Lady Ironmen, they were in a do-or-die scenario but grabbed a win over Haworth, 45-36. Lady Ironmen now advance to Friday afternoon elimination game at 1 pm against the Afton Lady Eagles. 

On the guys side, they dug a 28-17 halftime hole that they would never fully crawl back out from as they fall 61-46 to the Howe Lions. Nowata led at the end of the first period 12-11 but that would be their last lead of the game.

Nowata trailed by 15-points in the third before the Ironmen went on a huge 18-6 run to get all the way back into the game as they trailed by just three. Kaleb Bashford was a huge reason for that as he scored 10 of his 23-points in the third quarter, including this huge three-pointer that would turn into a four-point play.

Nowata would make it a 36-44 game at the end of the third, but the Lions would go on a run to close out the Ironmen and grab the 15-point win. 

Bashford's game high of 23-points now puts him at 998 career points with at least one game left in his career. He needs just two-points to hit the 1,000 point mark. 

Ironmen fall to 11-14 and now face elimination Friday night in Colcord, also against the Afton Eagles at 7:30 p.m. A win would put them in a 2A Regional title game Saturday afternoon, and a loss would bring their season to a close.

We will have the Ironmen and the Eagles for you on KRIG 104.9 FM and with pre-game coverage starting at 7:15.
