The Union Lady Redskins advanced to the second round of the Union/Jenks Invitational by beating the Ponca City Lady Cats 52-40 win Thursday night at Union’s UMAC.

Union and Ponca City were neck and neck most of the game – until Union’s Sadie Moyer broke the tie with two free throws early in the third quarter to end the quarter leading 36-26.

Union guard Sadie Moyer, who was named Player of the Game, led the Lady Redskins with 14 points.

“We settled down and won as a team,” Redskins head coach Joe Redmond said. “In the first half, we were relying on our guards to stop Ponca City’s Baylee Fincher. We showed her that we had players that could guard her and she got off the ball a little bit and off her timing.”

The Lady Redskins will play Holland Hall in the semifinal game Friday at 4 p.m. Ponca City will play Broken Arrow Lady Tigers JV Friday at 7 p.m.
