Marlow boys edge Lindsay, 69-66

MARLOW — Zak Key might have only scored two points Tuesday night, but they turned out to be the biggest two points of the game.

With four seconds left on the clock and his team up by one point, the sophomore showed poise at the free throw line, nailing two clutch free throws to give Marlow a 69-66 victory over Lindsay at Outlaw Gymnasium.

However, there was still drama following the made shots as the Outlaws had to play defense one last time as Lindsay’s Hunter Mason threw up a three-point shot in an attempt to tie the game, but watched as it fell harmlessly off the glass and to the floor.

Even though the Outlaws held a 51-45 lead at the end of the third quarter, it was anything but safe against a strong Leopards squad.

In an entertaining and face paced fourth quarter, both teams battled furiously for the lead, but Marlow kept its nerve, never allowing Lindsay to get closer than two points down the home stretch.

 Another factor aiding the Outlaws was a solid 15-of-20 free throw shooting for the evening, which matched Lindsay’s 12-of-16 pace.

Marlow’s biggest lead of the first half came in the first quarter when the Outlaws led 11-4 at the 3:25 mark. Lindsay briefly held the lead at 18-17 with 6:03 left in the second quarter.

With 5:01 left in regulation the Outlaws held a 60-49 lead, but quickly saw it vanish as the Leopards slowly made their way back into the game.

LHS managed to get within three points at 63-60 with 50 seconds left in the game.

Pacing the Outlaws (3-1) on the evening was Kirby Neufeld with 21 points followed by Jackson Huddleston and Wes Coast each with 14 points. Zac Beasler scored 11 points on the evening.

Lindsay was led by Andrew Cummings who scored 28 to lead all scorers on the night. Mason managed to score 20 points for the Leopards.

Marlow will hit the road Friday night for a game against Washington (8 p.m.) before traveling to Oklahoma City for a showdown with Velma-Alma Saturday afternoon at 4:30 p.m.

  • 4-16 Central High 2.jpg Bronchos survive Fletcher

    Coach Jeff Jones realized he made a mistake after Tuesday’s 8-7 win at home versus Fletcher.
    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?
