Lady Indians struggle against Lady Wolves

COMANCHE — For a brief moment in the second half, the Comanche Lady Indians put a scare into the Davis Lady Wolves.

Unfortunately, DHS woke up and soon stamped its authority on the contest as the Lady Indians ultimately fell 54-33 at Tommy D. Weast Gymnasium.

After being down 26-14 at the halftime break, Comanche managed to get the score to 26-16 with 7:21 left in the third quarter.

But, the Lady Indians couldn’t capitalize any further as the Lady Wolves went on a 20-5 run to end the third quarter.

“I think it was more of the shooting that cost us,” Comanche coach Sean Hushbeck said about the third quarter run. “We had two wide open three’s that just didn’t fall. You have to give credit to their number 22 (Kendal Rogers), she’s a heck of a player. When we kind of quit scoring she got to the free throw line and got baskets for Davis.”

Comanche had every reason to worry about Rogers as she finished with 15 points in the first quarter alone, totaling 23 for the game to lead all scorers.

Davis held a commanding 19-4 advantage at the end of the first quarter, which saw the Lady Wolves completely control the pace of the game with tough defense and solid offense down low.

However, with the second quarter came the Lady Indians turn to show their stuff as CHS’ offense came to life, giving Comanche hope going into halftime with the deficit at 26-14.

“Our thing tonight was play hard and make them (Davis) earn everything,” Hushbeck said. “We talked about shortening the gap after halftime, and unfortunately we couldn’t do that. I’m extremely proud of the girls though for giving the type of effort they gave. It’s easy to roll over and finish the season, but they keep wanting to improve and get better.”

Payge Graham led the Lady Indians (2-14) with 13 points on the night, followed by Brianna Robinson, Hannah Suson, Emilee White and Jacey Morgan all with four points in the contest. Baylee Fulford and Baylee Morgan each put in two points.

Other scorers for Davis (12-6) included Jaycee Sanders and Jessica Looney each with nine points, followed by Katie Bumgarner with five points.

Comanche’s Lady Indians will be back at home Friday night for a game against Tishomingo with tip-off set for 6:30 p.m.
