CHS goes to 3-3 with win over Bulldogs

DUNCAN — The Comanche Indian’s rebuilding project seems to be well ahead of schedule.

After starting the season with three straight losses, the Indians continued to bounce back Tuesday, rolling past Healdton, 56-39 for their third straight win.

“I think it was the best effort of the year so far,” Comanche coach Nick Price said. “Offensively we had a lot more movement, and that’s something we have been talking about.”

Freshman Braden Ledford led Comanche (3-3) with 16 points, while junior Dalton Wood had 11 and senior Garrett Morrow added 10. Senior Zach Young finished with seven points, junior Jerron Sanders had six, freshman Mason Taylor had four and senior Grant Jones chipped in with two points.

The Indians, who had beaten Healdton by only four points in a game last week, wasted no time in asserting their dominance, jumping out to a 23-9 lead in the first quarter, which stretched to 35-19 by halftime.

“(The early lead) had everything to do with defensive pressure,” Price said. “We put a lot of defensive pressure on them and we got some easy baskets as a result.”

VELMA-ALMA 63 WILSON 42

While most teams might panic following a loss, Velma-Alma showed it isn’t like most teams.

Playing its first contest since an overtime defeat to Amber-Pocasset, the Comets came out swinging and rebounded with a sound 63-42 victory over Wilson.

“We had anticipated a tough game, but our kids were ready,” V-A coach Kenny Bare said. “Zac Cable was extremely hot for us and hit six three pointers. Our guys came out and gave one of their best defensive efforts of the season.”

At the half it was  33-15 in favor of the Comets, as the Eagles struggled to gain a foot hold in the contest, which included a 15-3 first quarter for V-A.

Leading the scoring for the Comets (5-1) was Cable, who finished with 21 points. Senior Dallen Mercer collected 12 points, while Jaz Gayanich scored nine 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.
