Splitting headache

Area teams stumble in Tuesday games




The Bronchos had a chance to win and they took it.

After a pair of free throws with five seconds left gave Sterling a two-point lead, Central High wasn’t looking for overtime, it was looking for a victory, tossing up a 3-pointer just before the buzzer. The shot, though, was off the mark.

“We played a really, really good ball game, and we were right there with a chance to win,” Central High coach John Nease said. “It was a very physical, rough game.

“There were loose ball and rebounds that could have gone either way,” he added. “We showed we can play with anybody.”

Senior Dallin Ferrin paced Central High (1-2) with 23 points, while juniors Kevin Harris and John Repp had 11 and six points, respectively. Senior Connor Albiston added three points.

The Bronchos were tied at 15 with Sterling at the end of the first quarter and fell behind 29-27 at halftime and 43-40 going into the fourth quarter.

Central High will be back in action Friday as they host Ninnekah.


For the Empire Bulldogs, the third game proved to be anything but a charm Tuesday night.

Three straight quarters of single digit scoring proved to be too much to overcome as the Waurika Eagles handed EHS its first defeat of the season, 44-27 in Waurika.

28 points in the first half propelled the Eagles to a 28-12 halftime advantage, as WHS managed to shoot 39 percent from the field, while balancing the attack with a solid 47 percent shooting percentage from the free throw line.

Empire struggled to find its strong offense, which scored 47 points Monday night against Bray-Doyle.

Leading the scoring for the Eagles on the evening was Austin Masoner, who led all scorers with 15 points followed by Mason Wilkerson with 10 points. Garrett Bachand and Leo Roberts each scored five points on the evening.

Empire was paced by Drew Ferguson with eight points followed by Tanner Ford with six points.

Friday night will see Empire at home against Grandfield, while Waurika will be back in action Dec. 4 against Temple at home.
