Indians falter late against Carnegie

VELMA — There couldn’t have been a worse time for deja vu to strike the Comanche Indians.

After three solid quarters of basketball, Comanche lost the lead to Carnegie with 7:50 left in the fourth, and never recovered as the Indians fell 63-56 in the first round of the Bullet Energy Comet Classic.

It was the second game in a row this week in which Comanche held its opponent at bay, but failed to capitalize late on.

“We were playing hard and going 100 percent,” Comanche guard Kale Reed said about his team’s performance in the fourth. “It was kinda hard though because we were missing some players who are on the jv squad who played earlier today. Garrett (Morrow) and Zach (Young) got into foul trouble which didn’t help either. We were just going so wild on offense with two minutes left that everything fell apart.”

Despite getting to within three points numerous times, the Indians couldn’t get any closer. Missed free throws and costly turnovers gave the Wildcats the opening they needed to take advantage of the game and ultimately claim victory.

It seemed though things would finally bounce CHS’ way in the second half, as a 7-0 run broke open a 30-29 Wildcat lead at the 6:56 mark of the third.

But, slowly but surely, Carnegie clawed its way back into the game, cutting the Indian lead to 43-42 at the end of the third quarter.

“We basically lost control of what we were doing,” Reed said. “Not running a set hurt us and just a bunch of little things hurt us out there. Sometimes its hard to get all five guys playing defense all the time, and that’s something we need to work on as a team.”

Both teams excelled from the free throw line as the Indians shot 10-of-14 while Carnegie turned in an impressive 14-of-18 performance from the charity stripe.

Comanche managed to shoot 50 percent from beyond the arc at 6-of-12, while the Wildcats were 3-of-7 from downtown.

Leading the scoring for the Indians was Garrett Morrow with 18 points followed by Kale Reed with 11. Jerron Sanders registered 10 points.

Carnegie was paced by Jonathyn Bronaugh who led all scorers with 23 points, with teammate Kyler Rodrick scoring 15 points.

Today will see the Indians play the loser of the Velma-Alma/Healdton game at 2 p.m.

Earlier in the day, the Comanche boys junior varsity team lost 97-51 against Lexington, they will play Rush Springs at 11 a.m. today.

  • Duran Duran has one obstacle left: State

    Midway through her sophomore year, Comanche’s Alexis Duran had her athletic life taken away from her, but this spring she got it back in spectacular fashion.
    An ACL tear in basketball kept the three-sport star out for a full year before she got to compete again in track as a junior. Duran didn’t just show up and run, she pushed for medals and came just shy of making the state tournament, finishing one spot away by a tenth of a second.

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.
