SILO - The Weleetka Outlaws dominated from start to finish on Saturday, ruining Silo homecoming with a 67-51 win over the Rebels.
The loss drops Silo to 16-5 on the season and ends a nice little win streak for the Rebels. They will look to bounce back on the road Tuesday against Atoka.
A well-attended Saturday afternoon game at Silo Gym saw Kendall Shives showing off his passing game with two quick assists to Lance House.
House scored 10 of his 14 points in the early going, but Weleetka built a double digit lead at 23-13 at the end of the first. A 15-6 Outlaw run in the second had the score at 38-19 by halftime.
Shots simply wouldn’t fall for Silo. Open looks clanked off the iron and seemingly good shots went halfway down before rimming out of the basket.
The Outlaws scored the first 11 points of the third before Leonard Sandler’s floater fell, but by then the score was 49-21 Weleetka with 11 minutes left in the game.
A three from Shives brought a timeout from the Weleetka coach, evidently fearful of losing his 23-point lead. Indeed, the Rebels outscored the Outlaws 20-10 in the fourth but never threatened to take control of the game.
Shives led Silo with 15 points, House had 14, Andrew Bolin eight, Sandler six, Trenton Long and Lucas Long three apiece and Tanner Clark scored two. Outlaw sharpshooter Montana Gornly scored 35.

Hannah Bourne led the Lady Rebels with 20 (10 coming in the first quarter). Mary Grider scored 16 and Riley Newton hit four from behind the arc on her way to 13 points.
