MADILL — The Kingston Redskins traveled to Madill and took home the Golden Shoe Trophy with a 56-33 Lake Country Conference victory over the Wildcats on Friday at the Wildcat gym. Madill had maintained possession of the award for more than a decade before the Redskin win relocated it to the Kingston gym for at least a year. In order for Madill to regain the trophy, they must travel to Kingston next season and win there to bring it home. Kingston, 12-4 overall and 3-0 in Lake Country Conference play, and ranked No. 18 in Class 3A, took firm control of this contest with a strong second-period performance. The Redskins had a 12-7 lead after the opening period, but a 16-4 run in the second gave Kingston a 28-11 advantage at intermission. “One thing that was troubling for me was the way they managed to get inside on us and shoot layups in the second period,” Madill coach Aaron George said. “That makes for a higher shooting percentage for them, and it will get you behind if you fail to stop the penetration. I thought we played with good intensity throughout the game, but tonight they had what it took to gain the win.” Madill (5-10,1-3) rallied a bit in the third and pulled to within 10 points at 35-25 with three minutes left in the frame following a three-pointer by Colton Clement. Kingston ended the period strong to move to a 44-29 lead heading to the fourth. The Redskins dominated in the final eight minutes, primarily from the charity stripe. Kingston finished the game 20 of 31 in free throw shooting, but with the game on the line in the final eight minutes, the Redskins knocked down 10 of 14 to keep the Wildcats from making a last-ditch rally. “They turned up the defense on us in the fourth period, and we needed those free throws to keep the lead,” Kingston coach Taylor Wiebener said. “In many of our games we don’t seem to do very well with our free throw shooting until the fourth. Someone almost always steps up for us in the final period and makes a bunch in a row to give us a lift. I was a bit disappointed in our turnovers, but one of our guards is out right now. And that puts some added pressure on everyone else to handle the ball well. Although we had 17 turnovers tonight, it did not hurt us too bad.” The Redskins outscored Madill 12-4 in the game’s final eight minutes. Paden Hayes had 14 points, including 7 of 9 from the line, to lead Kingston in scoring. Keelan Price had 12 points, including 6 of 9 from the line, and Mason Whipkey had 11 points, including 5 of 6 from the stripe, for the Redskins. Samuel Bond led the way for the Wildcats with 10 points. The Wildcat homecoming ceremony was held following the basketball games. Haley Furr was crowned the homecoming queen, and Jared Caldwell was the homecoming king.
