We had a pair of high school basketball games on the RRN-Scottsbluff as Gering swept their home doubleheader with Torrington.
The Gering girls were tied with Torrington 28-28 at halftime and then they went off, playing some of their best basketball of the season in the third quarter, scoring 23 points in the third quarter on their way to a 65-55 win.
That third quarter featured plenty of team basketball. Gering was making extra passes that led to easy baskets for teammates.
Kiarra Aguallo had a career best night scoring 24 points to led Gering. Two other were in double figures with Sydnee Winkler going for 14 points and Chloey Fries scoring 10.
Head Coach Steve Land joined Jeff Kelley on the postgame show to talk about the big win.
The Gering girls improved to 9-8 on the season.
In the boys game the Bulldogs were able to snap a four game losing streak with a 45-34 win. Gering came close on Saturday night against Scottsbluff, leading by four at the end of the third quarter, but eventually falling by seven.
In this one it was a 18-17 lead at halftime for the Bulldogs and it was tied 28-28 at the end of three. Gering though, closed the game on a 14-3 run to close out with the victory.
Brett Pszanka, who missed the game Saturday, was back in the lineup scoring 16 points. Fellow senior Jack Franklin also tallied 16 on the night.
Here’s what Head Coach Kyle Cotton had to say after the game.
Both Gering teams are back in action on Thursday night with road games at Bayard. We’ll have coverage on 106.9 The Trail and KHYYfm.com starting at approximately 5:45 with the girls game scheduled for 6 pm.
