Lady Bronchos blast Ninnekah, 55-21

DUNCAN — After suffering its first defeat of the season last Tuesday to Sterling, the Central High Lady Bronchos were in no mood for a second helping Friday night at Broncho Gymnasium.

CHHS managed to hold Ninnekah to single digit scoring totals in every quarter, as the Lady Bronchos cruised to a 55-21 victory.

The most lopsided scoring came in the fourth, when the Lady Owls managed just two points compared to the Lady Bronchos 18.

Going into halftime, NHS tried to keep things close at 23-15, but Central High proved to be too much in the second half.

Leading the scoring on the evening was Lacie Phillips who registered 13 points to go with five rebounds. Chelsea Nunley put in 10 points along with four rebounds. Charity Harris put in nine points on the evening, while Caitlyn White and Lora-Lynn Loomis each put in eight points.



Sometimes, it’s not how many shots you take but rather how many you make.

For the Empire Lady Bulldogs, they made just enough to stay undefeated Friday night against Grandfield.

Despite shooting 15-of-57 from the field, the Lady Bulldogs used a 17-12 run in the fourth quarter to claim a 45-40 victory.

“It was just a self inflicted perfect storm,” Empire coach Jason Allensworth said about his teams shooting performance. “Our girls knew they should have played better and it just wasn’t happening fast enough. Early on we had a lot of great looks and missed some good shots. After a while we started to play a little better.”

EHS found itself down 16-15 at halftime, before tying the game at 28-28 heading into the fourth quarter, before the Lady Bulldogs were finally able to pull away.

Ashlie Atkinson led the scoring for Empire with 24 points on the evening followed by Melaina Yearby with 12 points.


It might not have been the prettiest opening contest, but the Comanche Lady Indians managed to survive it.

Despite being down 14-11 at halftime, CHS fought back to claim a 37-31 victory over Wilson Friday night on the road.

“We expected a slow first half given all the inexperience we have on our team,” Comanche coach Sean Hushbeck said. “There were plenty of good shots, but they just weren’t going in for us. Once we relaxed then we started playing better.”

With 52 seconds left, the Lady Indians held a slim 33-27 lead, and managed to hang on the rest of the way.

Hannah Suson led the scoring on the night with 15 points followed by Emilee White with seven points. Jacey Morgan and Payge Graham each scored five points on the night.

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.
