Friday Night Sports: January 14

Friday night was a huge night of sports in Texoma, but nothing was bigger than the rivalry battle going on at Rider Fieldhouse.

The Wichita Falls High School Coyotes and Lady Coyotes visited the Raiders and Lady Raiders with a huge edge in the age-old rivalry, with the boys having won 18 of 19 meetings and the girls winning 28 straight, going back to 1997.

The girls took the floor first, and in a tight, see-saw affair, the Lady Raiders finally broke through for the upset win, 49-45. The win improves the Lady Raiders to 19-6 overall, 5-1 in District 4-4A. The Lady Coyotes drop to 16-7, 3-3 in district.

Then the boys took the floor. Old High used an early 12-1 run in the first quarter to take a seven-point lead after the first quarter, and pulled away for a 47-36 win. That moves the Coyotes to 3-1 in district, while Rider drops to 1-3. It's the 19th win for WFHS in the last 20 games against Rider.

    Somehow tying US Open record with final-round 63 wasn't totally satisfying for Tommy Fleetwood; he wanted a 62.
