Demons fall at Ardmore

DUNCAN — This one didn’t quite make it to triple-overtime.

After an epic first meeting, the Duncan Demons couldn’t keep up with Ardmore on Tuesday night, falling 55-38 on the road.

The Demons (5-13), who were without senior Jack Braught as he rested an injured ankle, trailed 10-7 after one quarter and 20-14 by halftime. It was 31-23 by the end of the third period.

Senior Cade Baldwin pace the Demons with 13 points, while senior Carter David recorded 10 points, five rebounds and four assists. Junior Isiah Ervin finished with eight points, seven rebounds and five assists, juniors JeMario McCoy and DeAndre Vermaire each added two points, while junior Scott Reed chipped in with one point.

BLANCHARD 66, MARLOW 42

A slow start proved too hard for the Outlaws to overcome as they never could mount a rally on the road Tuesday.

Marlow (11-8) fell into a 12-4 hole in the first quarter and never got it back within striking range.

“We kind of laid back and let the game happen until we got too far back,” Marlow coach John Garrett said. “It was a 10 point game in the second quarter and then they scored the last six points before halftime. We just never could really get back in it.”

Senior Jackson Huddleston led the Outlaws with 11 points, while sophomore Zac Beasler had nine and junior Kirby Neufeld added eight. Junior Wes Coast, sophomore Nathan Crowson and freshman Braeden O’Dell each had four points and sophomore Trevor McClure added two.

PLAINVIEW 58, COMANCHE 51

The Indians led by eight going into the fourth quarter, but that’s when things fell apart.

“We just didn’t take good care of the ball,” Comanche coach Nick Price said of the final period.

Comanche (8-11) trailed by three points with a minute to play, but couldn’t knock down shots for a late rally and Plainview hit its free throws.

“We played with a lot of effort,” Price said. “We took care of the ball, we just didn’t take care of it in the fourth quarter.”

Freshman Braden Ledford paced the Indians with 13 points, while senior Grant Jones had 12 and senior Garrett Morrow had 10. Senior Zach Young added eight points, junior Jerron Sanders had four and senior Kale Reed and freshman Mason Taylor each chipped in with two points.

Poll

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.
