Eagles Ousted in Winfield



2-18-2014 Keota 44, Winfield-Mt. Union 54

Despite getting up 19 more shot attempts than its opposition, the Keota girls’ basketball squad wasn’t able to come through with a win at Winfield-Mt. Union in the quarterfinal round of the 1A Regional playoffs.

Winfield-Mt. Union shot 14 more free throws than the Eagles and held on for a 54-44 win.

“It was one of those back and fourth games,” Keota head coach Jenny Hobbs said. “Both teams played really aggressive man-to-man (defense), we just couldn’t convert when we needed to.”
