Ada teams glide by Woodward twice

Newcastle —  

Both Ada High basketball teams had problems shaking free of their Woodward opponents during first-round contests Thursday afternoon during the 2013 Newcastle Invitational.

But both Ada squads found ways to win in the fourth quarter.

In the girls contest, the Lady Cougars trailed 34-31 heading into the final period but pitched a fourth-quarter shutout and rallied past the Boomers for a 40-34 victory.

The Ada girls improved to 10-5 overall and were scheduled to meet the Newcastle-Noble winner today at 4:20 p.m., while Woodward fell into the loser’s bracket at 2-13 and has lost five straight games.

“I was really pleased when you consider how sick we’ve been on and off — it’s going through us like wildfire,” Ada head coach Christie Jennings said following the game. “We’re just here to get wins. They don’t have to be pretty, we just want to win at the end of the day.”

In the boys contest, point guard Easton Pingleton’s huge steal, layup and traditional three-point play with 2:31 left in the game helped the Cougars hold off Woodward 70-63.

Coach Ron Anderson’s bunch improved to 9-6 on the season while Woodward dropped to 6-9.

The Cougars were set to do battle with top seed Westmoore — No. 15 in Class 6A — in tonight’s late semifinal game at 8:20 p.m.
