Demons fall at Ardmore




The Lady Demons had a strong second half but it wasn’t enough to make up for the damage done in the first 16 minutes Tuesday at Ardmore.

Duncan trailed 17-4 after one quarter and 31-13 by halftime before outscoring the Lady Tigers by three in the second half.

“We came out in the first half flat and dug ourselves a hole,” Duncan coach Aaron Minor said. “The second half we played good and won the half.”

Senior Jaime Carberry led Duncan (4-14) with 12 points, while junior Rainy Stanford had seven, freshman Delaney Mitchell added six, senior Sarah Ray had four and junior Tania Eliz chipped in with one point.


The Lady Comets were up 27-2 by the end of the first quarter as they made quick work of the visiting Lady Foxes.

By halftime the lead was 41-6.

“We played well. We shot the ball a whole lot better and we had a lot of people score,” Velma-Alma coach Jerry Garrett said. “I’m proud of our effort tonight.”

Senior Kylee Saville led the Lady Comets (14-6) with 19 points, while junior Aria Johnson had 17 and junior Samantha Moore posted 10 points.


The Lady Outlaws couldn’t keep their momentum rolling after winning the Stephens County Tournament, fading away in the second half Tuesday night on the road.

Marlow (11-8) trailed 22-18 at halftime before the game slipped away as Blanchard pushed its lead to 32-23 by the end of the third quarter.

“We just didn’t shoot very well,” Marlow coach Kirk Harris said. “I didn’t think we played very good defense either.”

Seniors Ashley O’Dell and Avery Walker each had 12 points to pace the Lady Outlaws, while sophomore Tory Nations had 10, sophomore Diamond Morris had two and sophomore Shayna Throckmorton added one point.


The Lady Indians fell into an 18 point hole in the first quarter and the game got out of reach quickly.

By halftime the Lady Indians (2-16) tailed 31-5.

Junior Payge Graham and freshman Brianna Robinson scored six points apiece to lead Comanche, while junior Baylee Morgan had five points and freshman Baylee Fulford had three.

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.
