Comanche outlasts Outlaws

COMANCHE — Comanche senior Garrett Morrow saved his best performance of the season for his team’s biggest rival Saturday night.

Against the Marlow Outlaws, Morrow totaled 30 points, 11 rebounds and three steals as the Indians pulled off the upset, surviving 57-56 in overtime at Tommy D. Weast Gymnasium.

Ironically enough, it was Morrow’s basket with 18 seconds left in the overtime period which proved to be the game winning points.

Marlow gave themselves a chance to win at the end, but Braeden O’Dell’s three point attempt went straight to the floor.

In a tightly contested game throughout, neither team could generate a lead bigger than five points in the first half.

With 4:23 left in the first, the Outlaws held a 9-4 lead, before the Indians stormed back to claim the lead at 12-11.

Going into halftime it was advantage Indians as CHS held a 33-30 lead.

After the break, it was much of the same entertaining basketball as both teams battled hard for the lead.

Clutch baskets and tough defense set the tone as players on each side put up solid numbers on the evening, with Marlow registering three players in double-digit scoring.

At the end of the third quarter, it looked as though the Indians were free and clear as they held a six point lead at 43-36, which was their largest of the game up to that point.

Slowly but surely though, the Outlaws crawled back into the game and eventually tied it thanks to a Kirby Neufeld layup with 35 seconds left in regulation.

Other scorers for the Indians (5-4) on the night included Zach Young who finished with 11 points, along with Grant Jones who pitched in five points. Braden Ledford and Mason Taylor each scored three points.

Leading the scoring for Marlow (6-3) was O’Dell with 20 points to go with four rebounds on the night. Wes Coast put in 13 points with three rebounds while Neufeld scored 11 points with six rebounds.

Comanche will be at home to Madill on Tuesday night at 8 p.m. while Marlow will be entertaining Purcell at home also on Tuesday night.

No. It's better in the summer cause kids are out of school.
Yes. More shoppers would come during nice fall weather.
