Lady Comets rally past Bray-Doyle

BRAY — Patience is often described as a virtue. It’s also the tool that helped the Velma-Alma Lady Comets maintain their recent winning streak.

After being down 14-10 at the end of the first quarter, the Lady Comets took over in the second and third quarters as Bray-Doyle became the sixth team in a row to fall to V-A, this time by a score of 56-41.

“The first quarter we were just shooting a lot of threes,” V-A coach Jerry Garrett said. “We were getting good looks but they weren’t going in for us. I just told the girls we had to make Bray-Doyle work more on defense and drive to the basket. In the second and third quarters we did that more and it showed.”

V-A didn’t start to pull away until the 4:21 mark before halftime when the Lady Comets led 21-18.

By the time halftime hit, the Lady Comets were leading 30-21.

Foul trouble and fast break points proved to once again be too much for the Lady Donkeys to handle, as V-A turned on the offense in the second half leading by as many as 20 points at the end of the third quarter.

“Their (V-A’s) pressure was more aggressive after the first quarter,” B-D coach Frank Moser said. “That led to more turnovers for us which meant more points for them. Velma made us pay when we turned the ball over. We need to get more consistent with our play and be able to hold it for four quarters.”

B-D tried to mount a rally in the fourth, but the Lady Donkeys could get no closer than 13 points to the Lady Comets (7-3) lead.

Lady Comet senior Kylee Saville led all scorers with 23 points in the game, followed by Teddi Southerland with 10 points. Samantha Moore registered seven points, with Shalyn Files and Jordan Layn each putting in five points.

Ashlee Kelly led the Lady Donkeys (3-8) with 19 points, followed by Taylor Nichols with eight points. Erica Hatfield and Morgan Kovar each put in four points.

Both of these teams will be in action at the Black Diamond Tournament in Rush Springs with Bray-Doyle meeting Sterling Monday afternoon at 4:30 p.m. while V-A will play Apache Tuesday afternoon at 4:30 p.m.

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.
