Outlaws prepare for Regional tourney rematches

MARLOW — In order for the No. 3 Marlow Outlaws to advance to their second straight state tournament, they will have to face some familiar opponents this weekend at regionals.

With the announcement handed down by the OSSAA on Monday morning, the Outlaws were named as one of the host sites as expected.

Another expected outcome was Frederick being drawn as one of the three teams the Outlaws would possibly encounter during the double-elimination tournament.  

However, something that was surprising were the other two teams that will be joining the Outlaws and the Bombers this weekend.

No. 16 Kingfisher and Jones were named as the final two teams in the Marlow regional pool.

MHS’ first obstacle in the regional round will be Jones at 11 a.m. on Thursday from Stone-Black Field.

“Regardless of who we’re playing, I’m going to get my guys fundamentally prepared offensively and defensively,” Marlow coach Jeff Brewer said. “We’ve already beaten Jones once this season, but didn’t play very well when we did. It doesn’t matter who we play or what seed they are, we have to put the pressure on whoever we’re playing.”

Marlow fans will long remember last season and the budding rivalry that grew between the Outlaws and the Longhorns.

After dropping a close encounter in the finals of the Jones tournament, Marlow found itself eliminated again by the Longhorns in the state quarterfinals last season, losing a 2-1 heartbreaker at Edmond Memorial High School.

This season though, has been a different story as the Outlaws gained a measure of revenge on April 6 with a 7-0 victory over Jones on the road.

In fact, MHS has defeated every team that will be participating in the regional tournament this season.

Frederick suffered two defeats to the boys in blue, first on March 12 at Marlow by a 12-0 score, before falling to MHS again at FHS on March 25 by a score of 14-0.

Kingfisher and Marlow have also met this season, with the Outlaws claiming an exciting 7-6 at Bricktown Ballpark in Oklahoma City on March 22nd.

Should the Outlaws win against the Longhorns, they will play at 3 p.m. on Thursday in the regional semifinals.
