Marlow splits two

Lady Outlaws take care of business

MARLOW — The Marlow basketball teams hosted Rush Springs for senior night and two homecomings (wrestling and basketball) Tuesday night. The Lady Outlaws were victorious with a 55-22 thrashing of the Lady Redskins. Rush Springs boys notched a win with a 53-44 win over the Outlaws.

Skyler Newberry scored the first eight points of the game for either team in the girls game. The Lady Outlaws dominating defense held Rush Springs to four field goals in the game.

“I was proud of our effort defensively tonight,” Marlow coach Kirk Harris said. “We didn’t give up a whole lot of field goals and we had some other girls step up.”

Marlow led 24-11 at the half and extended its lead to 20 in the third quarter when Chadell George drained a 3-pointer. Senior Taylor Leippe scored 11 of her 12 points in the second half including three 3-pointers.

Harris emptied his bench during the final frame as 10 Lady Outlaws scored in the game. Newberry led all scorers with 14.

“We were more balanced tonight and had a lot of girls in the scoring column,” said Harris. “We shot the ball better tonight than we have the past couple of weeks and that opened up their defense a little bit.”

The Lady Outlaws improved to 13-6 with the win.

A questionable technical foul of Marlow coach Jason Wilkerson turned the tide in the final minute of the boys game. Marlow trailed 46-44 when Wilkerson was called for the technical for standing on the court while the ball was at the other end.

Alan Borski hit both free throws to give the Redskins a four-point lead. Rush Springs couldn’t convert on their possession and the Outlaws had a chance to get back in the game but a Marlow turnover proved costly.

Kevin Pitman took the steal coast-to-coast for a lay-up to extend the Redskin lead to six. Borski stole another pass and was fouled. He made both free throws and Rush Springs pulled away.

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.
