Looking for a lifeline

B-D hits road in search of wins in Minco

DUNCAN — It’s been a run of bad luck to start the season for the Bray-Doyle Lady Donkeys and first-year head coach Frank Moser.

With Friday night’s 43-33 loss to Cement, the Lady Donkeys fell to 0-3 to start the season.

But, today could start to see a change of fortune for B-D as the Minco Tournament begins with Verden (2-4) providing the opposition for the Lady Donkeys at 4 p.m.

“We played well against Cement, but we just had a rough first quarter that we never recovered from,” Moser said. “Right now we just want to be a little more consistent with our play. I look at us as a five-cylinder engine, and we’ve only been firing on three or four cylinders this season.”

While the Lady Tigers have played twice as many games as the Lady Donkeys in 2012-13, most of them have been at the hands of quality teams, in relatively close fashion.

Against Class A’s No. 5 ranked team Ft. Cobb Broxton, VHS only lost 43-36, before battling Class B’s No. 22 ranked team Lookeba-Sickles to a 42-36 defeat. No. 15 Amber-Pocasset out of Class 2A is the only ranked team who wasn’t tested by the Lady Tigers.

“I honestly don’t know a whole lot about Verden off hand,” Moser said. “They should be a pretty solid team considering they have a few more games than us. We’ve got a lot to worry about as it is with ourselves and playing better.”

Other teams participating in the tournament will be host Minco, Geary, Riverside Indian, Apache, Union City and Maud.

A Lady Donkeys victory would see them play the winner of Geary/Minco on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, the Donkeys will also look to break out as they look for a victory in the Minco Tournament this week as well.

Both the Donkeys and Lady Donkeys will be at home facing Comanche on Dec. 14 after this week.

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.
