Day 3: Chesapeake Challenge...
By Robert Przybylo
A third-place game steals the show while the championship teams show exactly why they won the crown at the Chesapeake Energy Challenge at Heritage Hall.
First, the scores.
Holland Hall 52, Weatherford 35 (championship)
Kingfisher 51, OKC Storm 50, OT (third place)
Heritage Hall 39, Perkins-Tryon 32 (consolation championship)
Putnam North JV 62, Porum 47 (seventh place)
Weatherford 61, Heritage Hall 28 (championship)
Perkins-Tryon 46, Kingfisher 37 (third place)
Edmond Santa Fe JV 56, OKC Storm 41 (consolation championship)
Porum 39, Colbert 33 (seventh place)
Holland Hall 52, Weatherford 35 (Boys)
The Dutchmen are impressive, I tells ya. They’re now 8-1 with their only loss being at Cascia Hall, the defending state champions.
In the semis, I thought this team was too much of a two-man club in William Tisdale and Kwame Sexton. Holland is much more than that as it showed in the second half of this one.
Don’t get it wrong as Tisdale led the way with 16 points and Sexton had 10, but there were key contributors down the stretch to make sure Weatherford didn’t break off a run.
Ethan Elbert scored all eight of his points in the second half while Zach Rogers had six big points in the paint as Holland frustrated the Eagles all game.
Elbert’s three to start the third quarter made it 37-25 and Weatherford never got closer than 10 the rest of the way as the Dutchmen played with a comfort margin throughout.
Enjoyed watching this team the last two days and how well they execute.
As for Weatherford, missed some easy ones early that really got ‘em off on the wrong foot. Jake Barrios is still a heckuva athlete and can create when you think nothing is there. Just wasn’t their night Saturday.
Weatherford 61, Heritage Hall 28 (Girls)
