The Madill Lady Wildcats had three players score in double figures but the squad just came up a bit short in a 56-53 loss to Eufaula in the consolation final of the Checotah basketball tournament Saturday (Jan. 25) afternoon. The Lady 'Cats clawed their way back after facing a deficit in the first half. The Lady Ironheads were solid offensively in the first quarter and built a 12-3 advantage over Madill by the conclusion of the opening period. Brenna Green recorded the only points for Madill in the first. Madill dug in and closed the gap to 21-19 by intermission. Madill began to get in a rhythm offensively in the second half. They trailed Eufaula 35-31 by the end of the third frame. Then they actually outscored the Ironheads 22-21 in the final quarter, but fell by the three-point margin. Kaylen Sweat canned a team-high 21 points, junior Mikah Hartsfield collected 13 points, and Haley Furr accounted for 12 in the loss. Kaitlyn Richardson went 2-for-2 from the floor to add four points. Madill faces Ada Tuesday (Jan. 28) on the road.
