Bray girls go 2-0 over weekend

DUNCAN — The Bray-Doyle Lady Donkeys made sure they will head into the Stephens County Tournament with some momentum after picking up a pair of wins over the weekend.

A day after cruising past Fox, the Lady Donkeys earned an even more lopsided victory as they topped Geronimo, 69-30 on Saturday.

Bray-Doyle (5-11) led 19-13 after the first quarter but began to pull away in the second period as they stretched it to 35-21 before slamming the door on the Lady Blue Jays in the second half.

“We played real well. Jut a good team effort,” Bray-Doyle coach Frank Moser said. “Geronimo has struggled this season but it was still nice to go take care of business and do what we needed to do.”

Junior Ashlee Kelly scored 20 points in the first half and finished with a team-high 22 for Bray-Doyle, while sophomore Taylor Nichols had 17, senior Morgan Kovar and junior Madison Kelly each added 13 and freshman Alma Alvarez scored four.

“Madison Kelly played really well, probably the best game I have seen her play,” Moser said. “I thought my guard play overall was really good today.”


It’s pretty simple logic: If you win each quarter, you will inevitable win the game.

That’s exactly what the Lady Comets did Saturday, edging the Lady Warriors in every quarter en route to victory.

Velma-Alma (11-5) led 16-12 after one quarter, 28-20 by halftime and 38-27 by the end of the third quarter.

Senior Kylee Saville again paced the Lady Comets with 20 points, while junior Aria Johnson added 17.



After their first meeting with the Warriors was only separated by five points in the first round of the Black Diamond Tournament, the Comets decided to make it a little more decisive of a victory on Saturday.

Velma-Alma (14-2) jumped out to a 15-6 lead in the first quarter and by halftime it was out of reach as the Comets held a 41-16 advantage.

Senior Dallen Mercer paced the Comets with 14 points, while senior Checotah Lynn had 13, junior Jaz Gayanich added 12 and senior Zac Cable scored eight.

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.
