Area teams struggle at districts

DUNCAN — Saturday night saw more playoff basketball for the smaller schools in the Stephens County area, with teams fighting for district titles in the process.



It was bound to be a tough task for the Comanche Lady Indians going up against No. 6 Plainview at PHS in the district championship.

Although there was some significant progress made by CHS as the Lady Indians were able to score 20 points in the first half against PHS.

Unfortunately, that wasn’t enough to hold off the onslaught as Plainview eventually claimed a 61-36 victory over Comanche.

“I thought offensively to score 20 points in the first half against a state-ranked team was a step in the right direction for us,” Comanche coach Sean Hushbeck said. “Defensively we carried out our gameplan, but they (Plainview) had some other girls really step up for them.”

Stats and other information were not made available.

With the loss, Comanche drops into the consolation bracket which will see CHS face Jones (14-8) on Thursday Feb. 21 at 1:30 p.m. from Washington High School.

“Jones isn’t a bad team but they aren’t ranked,” Hushbeck said. “It’ll be a nice change compared to the competition we’ve been seeing the past couple of weeks.”



Against No. 10 Plainview, Comanche came out early on and held a 4-0 lead.

Unfortunately, the lead didn’t last as PHS got its second victory over CHS this season with a 77-44 score.

“We started off the game well for the most part,” Comanche coach Nick Price said. “Then they (Plainview) started hitting some shots and we just didn’t hit very many of ours after that.”

Comanche (10-14) found itself down 40-23 at halftime, after being outscored 16-7 in the first quarter.

In the third quarter, Comanche managed to outscore Plainview 13-11 before PHS turned up the heat with a 26-8 run in the fourth quarter to seal the victory.

Garrett Morrow led the scoring for CHS with 27 points followed by Braden Ledford with 14 points. Kale Reed added three points.

Comanche will meet Jones (0-19) in the consolation bracket of regionals on Thursday Feb. 21 at 3 p.m. from Washington High School.


Things didn’t go very smoothly for the Central High Bronchos in the district championship.  

Against the high-flying Wilson Eagles (22-2), CHHS was swept aside 82-51, sending the Bronchos into the consolation bracket.

Stats and other information were not available.

Central High (13-9) will meet No. 7 Dale (21-5) in the first round of regionals on Thursday Feb. 21 at 3 p.m. from Wynnewood High School.

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.
