Basketball fans looking for excitement had their dreams realized Monday night when the Henryetta Lady Knights and Weleetka Lady Outlaws tangled.
 A two-point, buzzer beater field goal turned a win into a heartbreaking loss for the Lady Knights at the Henryetta Invitational tournament.
Both teams fought neck to neck throughout the game, going from a 10-10 tie at the end of the first to a 26-22 difference at the half.
The Lady Knights fielded a full slate of starters Monday with senior Alissa Taylor playing for the first time since she was injured a month ago at Prague. It was Hanna Gouge boosting the HHS fans hopes when she hit a three point goal with under10 seconds left in the game to tie at 42-42. The Lady Outlaws got the ball back then picked up a two point goal from outside for the win just as the clock ran out.
Gouge and Aundrea Hamric were the two mainstays for the Henryetta scoring with 11 points each. Gouge scored a pair of three-pointers and two field goals while Hamric had one from the three-point arc and three field goals.

Taylor, playing with a knee brace to compensate for a torn ACL, had nine points, all of them three pointers. Maddie Gouge scored five followed by Addison Ellis with four and Mykaela Wallace, two.
That put the Lady Knights into the first round of consolation play Thursday evening. Henryetta's boys sailed into the second round of the winners' brackets when they manhandled the Wilburton Diggers by a 51-26 difference.
The Knights jumped off to a 12-5 advantage at the end of the first quarter then boosted that to 22-17 at the half.
In the second half, Wilburton scoring was almost non-existent while Henryetta slammed in 29 points for the win.
Chet Caywood was the leading point getter for Henryetta with 15 followed by Heath Konsure sinking 12. Aiding them were Tyler Johnson, nine, Kiley Johnson, seven, Brannon Murphy four, Riley Berry, three and Braxton Taylor, one.
