Central girls roll Verden; Marlow sweeps Little Axe

DUNCAN — After finishing out the Black Diamond Tournament with back-to-back losses, the Central High Lady Bronchos got just what they were looking for Tuesday night as they avoided what would have been their first losing streak of the season.

Faith Harris racked up 16 points and 16 rebounds, and the Lady Bronchos rolled to a road victory over Verden, 40-18.

“We shot the ball well,” Central High coach Chad Weldon said. “And we played good defense, holding them to 18.”

Lacie Phillips added to the Lady Bronchos’ attack as she tallied eight points, while Lora-Lynn Loomis finished with six points and four rebounds. Aleia Daniels had four points and 11 rebounds, while Chelsea Nunley and Charity Harris had three points apiece.

Central High (10-4) led 5-3 after the first quarter, 20-7 by halftime and 33-11 going into the fourth quarter.



Coming off a run to the finals of the Lone Grove Invitational, the Lady Outlaws kept things rolling Tuesday as they cruised past Little Axe.

Marlow (8-6), which has won five of six, led 14-7 by the end of the first quarter, 23-14 by halftime and slammed the door in the third quarter as they pushed the margin to 41-22.

“We did pretty good. We were up about 26 or so in the fourth quarter and then they started pressing us and were able to come back a little,” Marlow coach Kirk Harris said. “We were a little sluggish at the start but we played well in the third quarter and were able to put it away.”

Senior Ashley O’Dell paced the Lady Outlaws with 22 points, while sophomore Troy Nations had 12 and Avery Walker and Diamond Morris each scored six. Senior Madison Walker added four points, senior Anne Davenport had three, sophomore Shayna Throckmorton added two and Emalee Williams chipped in with one point.


It seems right now the Bray-Doyle Lady Donkeys just can’t catch a break.

After struggling to two tough losses last week at the Black Diamond Tournament, things got worse for B-D on Tuesday night at Healdton.

A total of 25 missed free throws was just one of the problems hindering the Lady Donkeys as the Lady Bulldogs claimed a 61-35 victory.

“We played poor tonight and couldn’t hit anything,” B-D coach Frank Moser said. “If we would have hit at least half of our free throws then maybe it’s a different game. They (Healdton) pressed us and I thought we handled it really well. But in the half court we just forced the ball too much.”

Three straight quarters of single digit scoring also hurt on the evening as the Lady Bulldogs held a 45-16 lead going into the half.

Heading into the fourth, the Lady Bulldogs were in front 58-20.

B-D (3-11) finally managed to put together 15 points in the fourth quarter, but by then HHS was well on its way to victory.

Leading the scoring on the night for the Lady Donkeys was Ashlee Kelly with 11 points, followed by Taylor Nichols with nine points. Morgan Kovar put in seven points, while Erica Hatfield scored five points.

Should the date for The World's Largest Garage Sale be changed from the third weekend in July to sometime in October to take advantage of cooler weather like we had this past weekend?

No. It's better in the summer cause kids are out of school.
Yes. More shoppers would come during nice fall weather.
Either time is fine.
