Guymon High School’s Meagan Bellar had the game of her high school career, Thursday night. The junior scored 33 points, more than anybody on the court for either team.

But in the end, it wasn’t enough as the Oklahoma City Heritage Hall Lady Chargers rallied from a horrid first half, tied it after three, and held off a furious Guymon rally in the fourth quarter to post a 67-65 win.

The Heritage Hall defense was stingy and their offense was fast, and once the 4th-ranked Class 4A Chargers started hitting the three, it was a long night for the Guymon Tigers. The Chargers (16-5) didn’t allow Guymon to find rhythm on offense, and shut the Tigers out in the first quarter. The final shot of the period was a 3-pointer, the first of many for Heritage Hall as the Chargers won 60-22.
