Velma-Alma girls, boys win third-place games

MARLOW — A technical foul in the first quarter issued to head coach Chy Waters in the first quarter was just the beginning of the Ryan Cowgirls problems on Saturday afternoon.

Velma-Alma made sure to come out swinging as the Lady Comets ended the first quarter leading by 10 points and managed to stay consistent as V-A claimed third place in the  Stephens County Tournament with a 50-33 victory over the Cowgirls.

“I thought we bounced back today after two performances we weren’t very proud of,” V-A coach Jerry Garrett said. “We’ve still got to get better rebounding, but I’m pleased  with how we played today. This is the time of year you want to start playing well. Today was big for us especially getting our confidence. Our next four games will get us ready for the playoffs.”

Going into the halftime break though, it looked like momentum was on the side of RHS as the Lady Comet lead was a slim three points at 23-20.

But, a four point third quarter halted any hopes Ryan had of making a comeback as the Lady Comets put up 17 to take a 40-24 lead going into the fourth quarter.

Leading the scoring for the Lady Comets (13-6) was Kylee Saville with 20 points followed by Teddi Southerland with nine points. Shalyn Files added eight points. Aria Johnson  put in seven points on the day, with Bita Humphreys scoring four points.

Ryan (12-8) was paced by Kara Hawkins with nine points followed by Roshanda Lewis and Paige Bolin with eight points each.

BOYS

VELMA-ALMA 70 FREDERICK 52

It was the rematch both teams wanted, but in a much different setting.

Fortunately though for the Velma-Alma Comets, the result against the Frederick Bombers was the same as it has been the past few times, a Comets victory.

V-A used a strong second half effort to hold off a late Bombers rally as the Comets claimed third place with a 70-52 victory.

FHS tried to make things interesting at the 6:20 mark of the fourth as the Bombers cut the Comets lead to six points at 52-46.

But, just under three minutes later V-A was back in firm control with an increased lead of 62-48.

Throughout the entire contest, these two teams went at it with physical play dominating, resulting in bodies smacking the floor all across Outlaw Gymnasium.

Frederick held the lead for a brief moment at 6-4 with 5:45 left in the first, before V-A stormed back eventually leading 18-13 at the end of the first quarter.

Before the halftime horn could sound, the Comets had stamped their seal on the contest as they went into the locker room up 33-19 over the Bombers.

Leading the scoring for the Comets (16-3) was Jaz Gayanich who registered a double-double with 28 points and 11 rebounds. Connor Sullivan put in 11 points with eight rebounds,  while Dallen Mercer scored 10 points in the contest. Checotah Lynn added seven points with Zac Cable scoring five points.

Frederick (11-5) was paced by Tyler Hicks with 19 points followed by Grant Hoover with 14 points. Levi Hanes added 10 points for the Bombers.

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.
