Ike drops twinbill at Midwest City
With the Eisenhower girls trailing by 17 at halftime, coach Daniel Wall and his coaching staff told their players to make a decision.
The Class 5A No. 7 Lady Eagles could fight back in the second half and forge a comeback, or they could let Midwest City run away for an easy win.
Ginger Reece chose the former.
The senior scored 17 of her 26 points in the second half, and though she helped Ike avoid its second-straight double-digit loss, it wasn’t quite enough to get the win.
Midwest City — ranked 15th in Class 6A — escaped with a 53-48 win on Tuesday night, but even in loss, the Lady Eagles — especially Reece — have reason to celebrate.
