IMG_2940.jpg

Highway 97 Rivalry will return to Sand Springs Friday at 6:30 p.m. when the Class 6A No. 6 ranked Charles Page High School girls’ basketball team (17-4, 13-0) tips off against No. 18 Sapulpa (13-7, 9-3). The Lady Sandites will look to conclude the season undefeated in Frontier Valley Conference action.

The boys’ game, following the girls, will be a top-five match up as No. 4 Sapulpa (17-3, 10-2) looks to stay in contention for the FVC title by avenging a January loss to No. 5 Sand Springs (15-6, 9-4).

The Lady Sandites have the FVC title on lock with a 13-0 record, while the boys have been eliminated from contention at 9-4. The boys can’t finish any worse than fourth, and could still finish second pending the results of Sapulpa and Union’s final games. Last year the boys placed fourth with a 9-5 record while the girls finished third at 11-3.

Girls

The Sand Springs girls hold the No. 6 offense, No. 14 defense, and No. 10 margin of victory in Class 6A, winning by an average score of 60-48. They have won their past four games, most recently a 40-39 barn-burner against No. 18 Bixby.

Sapulpa is thirteenth offensively, sixth defensively, and eighth in margin of victory, winning by an average score of 55-44. The Chieftains have won six in a row, most recently a 62-52 upset of No. 8 Bartlesville.

Sand Springs defeated Sapulpa 45-43 on January 8th in what was the Sandites’ closest win of the season, prior to Tuesday’s game in Bixby. The Sandites were more accurate from both field goal ranges but the Chieftains came away with far more blocks and steals. The rebound battle was an even split. Holly Kersgieter led the Sandites with seventeen points and Taylor Dement led Sapulpa with sixteen.

Sand Springs hasn’t beaten Sapulpa twice in a season since 2011.

Boys

The Sandite boys are ninth offensively, seventh defensively, and seventh in margin of victory, winning by an average score of 63-53. They lost back to back games in their lowest offensive outputs of the season before drumming Bixby 79-51.

Sapulpa has the top offense in 6A, the No. 27 defense, and the third-highest margin of victory, winning by an average score of 77-63. The Chieftains have won three-straight games, most recently 64-58 against Bartlesville.

The Sandites won their first meeting 70-64 in Sapulpa, out-shooting their opponents 51% to 42% in the field and 71% to 50% at the stripe.
