Red hot Lindsay downs Marlow

MARLOW — On a night when the temperature dropped into the freezing mark outside, inside Outlaw Gymnasium, the Lady Outlaws and Leopardettes were burning up the nets.

The two teams combined to make 14 3-point shots on the evening, but in the end it was Lindsay coming away with the 61-53 victory over Marlow.

“Lindsay is a good club, and we knew they would be very solid,” Marlow coach Kirk Harris said. “Every end of the quarter situation gave them a swing in momentum. We didn’t do a good job in any of those situations coaching or on the floor. I thought conditioning was a bit of a factor as well, because in the fourth quarter we looked tired.”

One positive for the Lady Outlaws was the return of senior Avery Walker, who had missed the beginning portion of the season due to a foot injury.

Walker made up for lost time, nailing four 3-point shots, finishing the game with 14 points.

However, it wasn’t enough to keep the Leopardettes down for the count.

Despite being within striking distance at halftime down 32-30, Marlow couldn’t get over the hump in the third quarter, and found themselves fighting from behind.

A 46-40 lead for LHS at the end of the third quarter didn’t seem like such a mountain to climb, but it quickly became one as Lindsay continued to make clutch shots down the stretch.

An eight-point margin was the closest the Lady Outlaws could get in the fourth quarter.

Marlow held a 21-13 lead at the end of the first quarter, but saw LHS storm back to take its first lead of the evening 29-28 at the 1:38 mark of the second quarter.

“Things always look good when your red hot,” Harris said. “But we cooled off a little Lindsay made a run. They heated up in the second quarter and played better defensively.”

 Ashley O’Dell led the Lady Outlaws (1-3) with 20 points on the night, with Diamond Morris, Anne Davenport and Emalee Williams each scoring four points.

Lindsay was paced by Molly Hibbard with 16 points followed by Macey Hatfield with 15 points.

The Lady Outlaws will hit the road Friday night for a contest with Washington (6:30 p.m.) before traveling to face Velma-Alma on Saturday afternoon (3 p.m.) at the Oklahoma City Fairgrounds Arena.

    He saw that his freshman pitcher, Dylan Jones, was struggling but he still hoped that the Bronchos could finish off the win with him on the mound. Jones had only given up one run in six full innings. Why shouldn’t the coach stick with him?

  • Demon home game becomes road doubleheader

    The Duncan baseball team will head to Del City for a doubleheader Tuesday after its scheduled home Monday game was postponed.
    Demon coach Tim Hightower said Del City had some transportation issues that kept the Eagles from making it to Duncan. Snow in Del City delayed school buses and one would not have been available to bring the players to Duncan until between 4:30 and 5 p.m. That would mean delaying the start time of Monday’s game until later in the evening, when it would have been cold.
