Stonewall teams take two from host Konawa

Feb. 7—KONAWA — It wasn't a great time for the Konawa Tigers to be next on the schedule for the Stonewall boys.

Just two days after the Longhorns lost to Allen — their only blemish in the regular season — they bombarded Konawa 73-31 in a Monday night road game.

Stonewall, ranked No. 6 in Class A, improved to 23-1 on the year, while the Tigers fell to 7-12.

In the girls' contest, Class A No. 16 Stonewall used a big first half to storm past Konawa 65-43. Coach Dillon Monday's club fished the regular season at 19-5, while the Lady Tigers dropped to 3-13.

Both schools are on to the playoffs now.

The Konawa girls meet Verden at 6 p.m. and the Tigers meet Verden at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Allen High School in a Class A District Tournament. The winners of those games are set to meet host Allen in a pair of district title games at 6 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. on Saturday.

Both Stonewall teams are off until hosting a pair of Class A District championship games Friday night inside the Murphy-Roberts Gymnasium.
