Outlaws top Lone Grove to start season

MARLOW — This season’s Marlow Outlaws squad might be full of youth, but Tuesday night showed they can play like veterans when they need to.

Facing a deficit for most of the contest, John Garrett’s team battled back and managed to pull out a convincing 55-45 victory over Lone Grove at Outlaw Gymnasium.

In a very scrappy fourth quarter, Marlow took a 39-36 lead with 6:44 left in regulation, keeping LGHS in check the rest of the way with clutch baskets and tough defense.

After leading for a portion of the opening quarter, the Outlaws found themselves down at the end of the first 13-6, before being down 28-20 at the break, after trailing by 12 points at the 6:45 mark of the second.  

Lone Grove held a slim 38-37 advantage with three quarters complete, despite multiple ties and lead changes between the two teams.

Marlow shot 16-for-24 from the free throw line, while the Longhorns were 9-of-16 from the charity stripe.

On the evening, it was Lone Grove having the advantage from behind the arc as the Longhorns managed to shoot 50 percent from 3-point range, while the Outlaws were 1-of-3 in the contest.

Leading the scoring on the evening for the Outlaws (1-0) was Wes Coast with 18 points followed by Nathan Crowson with 12 points. Kirby Neufield scored eight with Zac Beasler close behind with seven points.

Lone Grove was paced on the evening by Nathan Meek with 10 points followed by Jaz Long and Aaron Sinkler with nine points apiece.

Marlow will look to make it two wins in a row Friday night as the Outlaws travel to Elgin for an 8 p.m. tip-off.

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.
