Revenge on their minds
By Ray Martin
The Dale girls high school basketball teams’ goal for the upcoming state tournament is clear: get to the finals, and avenge a regular season, triple-overtime loss to top-ranked Konawa.
Dale senior Tarra Kania said she can’t get the loss out of her mind.
“That is what we have been thinking about since they beat us in overtime,” Kania said. “They should be in the finals, and we are ready to get back and play them and get revenge.”
Dale reached its 24th state tournament by avenging a regional loss to Cordell Saturday.
Dale defeated Cordell, 38-34 in overtime Saturday to advance, and keep its hopes of a seventh state championship alive.
During the area consolation win, Kania said she thought about how disappointing it would be not to get another shot at Konawa.
“It crossed my mind that we might not make it,” Kania said. “It motivated me, and I knew what we had to do and we did it.”
