Bray girls go 2-0 over weekend



The Donkeys earned their first victory of the season, rolling past the Blue Jays.

Bray-Doyle will enter the Stephens County Tournament at 1-14.




The Lady Donkeys got off to a strong start and never looked back as they powered past the Foxes.

Junior Ashlee Kelly led Bray-Doyle with 22 points, while senior Morgan Kovar finished with 14. Sophomore Taylor Nichols scored eight, senior Erica Hatfield and freshman Abbie Lumbert each had four, junior Madison Kelly added three and freshman Alma Alvarez chipped in with two points.

“We played pretty good,” Bray-Doyle coach Frank Moser said. “Fox is not a very talented team but they played hard. We just played pretty well.”

After missing 25 free throws in their previous game against Healdton, the Lady Donkeys went 15-for-22 from the foul like.

Bray-Doyle led 20-6 after the first quarter, 34-12 by halftime and 47-18 by the end of the third quarter.


The Lady Bulldogs came into the game ranked the top team in Class 3A and they sure played like  it.

Sulphur led 25-3 by the end of the first quarter and by the end of the third it was up 58-13.

“We knew going in, offensively they are a very good team, but defense is what sets them apart from just good teams, so we knew it would be tough on offense and we just made too many turnovers,” Comanche coach Sean Hushbeck said. “They are a team that takes advantage of your every mistake.”

In only her second start at point guard, freshman Brianna Robinson led Comanche (2-13) with 13 points, while junior Payge Graham had seven.



It was a two-point game at halftime, but a sluggish third quarter doomed the Indians on homecoming.

“We didn’t play well in the third quarter,” Comanche coach Nick Price said. “We just didn’t shoot well. We missed layups and we couldn’t get open 3-pointers to fall.”

Senior Garrett Morrow led Comanche (6-9) with 21 points, while Braden Ledford added seven.

The Indians won’t likely dwell on this loss for long as they quickly turn their attention to the Marlow Outlaws, whom they play in the first round of the Stephens County Tournament.


The 16th-ranked team in Class 4A showed why it is so highly thought of as it jumped out to a 20-6 start in the first quarter and never let the Outlaws back in the game.

By halftime Bethany led 36-16 and going into the fourth quarter the margin had swelled to 50-23.

The loss moved Marlow to 8-7 coming into a rematch with Comanche in the first round of the Stephens County Tournament on Tuesday.

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.
