It wasn’t pretty, but the Sabetha Lady Bluejays improved to 2-1 on the season Tuesday night with a hard fought 32-29 win on the road at Perry Lecompton.

The Lady Jays got off to a fast start forcing six turnovers and taking an 11-9 lead after the first quarter, but returned the favor in the second turning over the basketball six times themselves which allowed Perry to take a 28-25 lead into intermission.

Neither team was able to gain the upper hand in the third quarter, as the two teams combined for nine total points with Sabetha holding a two-point advantage heading into the final quarter.

After Perry sophomore Jenna Keller put the Lady Kaws up two with under three minutes left on a three-pointer and a free throw, Sabetha went on a 5-0 run to end the game.

First, sophomore Morgan Schuette recorded a steal and a lay-up which tied the game up at 29, before junior Hillary Krebs picked off a pass and found fellow junior Skylar McAfee for another lay-up which gave the Lady Jays the lead for good.

Schuette capped off the win with a clutch free throw in the final seconds, as the Lady Jays forced seven turnovers in the fourth quarter to earn the come-from-behind win.

The Sabetha defense proved to be the difference Tuesday night forcing 22 total turnovers, which helped the Lady Jays overcome a tough shooting night.

Sabetha (2-1) now gets set to host ACCHS (1-1) Friday night with live coverage on the Sabetha Channel, while Perry (0-2) travels to Royal Valley (1-1).

Sabetha: Morgan Schuette – 9, Jessica Payne – 8, Skylar McAfee – 7, Hillary Krebs – 6, Maggi Hughes – 2.

Perry: Jenna Keller – 15, Blaise Ball – 6, Graci Folks – 4, Megan Fast – 4.


In what was a matchup of two of the top 10 teams in Class 3A, the No. 7-ranked Perry Lecompton Kaws used clutch free throw shooting in the fourth quarter to take down No. 10-ranked Sabetha at home Tuesday night 46-39.

After a back-and-forth first quarter the Kaws took the first upper hand in the second, as senior Canaan Daniels drilled back-to-back three-pointers and tallied eight points total to give Perry a 10-point lead with 5:04 left in the half.

But Sabetha never faltered, as Brett Stallbaumer and Ryan Stapelton combined for 10 points in the final minutes of the second quarter to pull the Bluejays back within two at halftime, 23-21.

Sabetha was able to pull within one heading into the fourth quarter, but Perry went 4-of-6 from the free throw line in the final quarter while senior Toby Baker notched six points to help keep Perry undefeated.

After a 23 point performance against Holton Friday, Canaan Daniels finished with a game-high 22 behind four 3’s Tuesday night and on the season has connected on six treys in just two games.

Perry (2-0) will look to remain unbeaten on the road Friday at Royal Valley (1-1), while Sabetha (1-2) hosts ACCHS (0-2).

Perry: Canaan Daniels – 22, Toby Baker – 12, Colton Mallonee – 6, Connor Anderson – 5, Landon Johnson – 1.
