Badgers edge Central

CENTRAL HIGH — Saturday night at Broncho Gymnasium saw one team enter with a normal gameplan for victory, while the other wanted to just stay still.

Elmore City-Pernell’s plan of long periods of passing combined with stalling in the first half proved to be enough to keep the Bronchos off the board, as the Badgers escaped Broncho Gymnasium with a 50-47 victory.

“The more frustrating part about all of this is that we’ve been in several games like this during the season,” Central coach John Nease said. “ECP had an unusual gameplan in holding the ball and trying to run the clock down. But, we had our chances to take advantage and win the game. My main objective right now is to keep moral up for the kids and help them get better.”

Before the final horn sounded, the Bronchos came back with one final flurry on the night.

Down 49-42, CHHS managed to get five quick points, including a three point basket with one second left from Kevin Harris, but it wasn’t enough.

At the 1:55 mark of the fourth, proceedings were tied at 42-42, but a quick basket by the Badgers gave them the advantage once again, which they would never let go.

Two key foul outs in Zarek Hickman and Connor Albiston only dug the Bronchos further into a hole they couldn’t get out of.

In a slow moving first quarter, fans at Broncho Gymnasium were almost lulled to sleep as the Badger players began to stand still on offense holding the ball for long periods of time without passing.

ECP’s plan of attack worked though, as it gave them a 16-9 advantage going into the second quarter.

But, before halftime the Bronchos (9-7) started to catch on as they went into the break with a 22-18 advantage.

Heading into the fourth, it was advantage Badgers once again at 37-34.

“The first thing to go in situations where you play two nights in a row is your shot because your legs are worn down,” Nease said. “We need to work on those sort of things. It takes a little extra to be focused when your in situations like this. We can learn a lot from games like this and know we don’t want to be on this end of it next time.”

Dallin Ferrin finished with a double-double with 17 points and 10 rebounds for the Bronchos. John Repp added four 14 points while Ian Hickman put in six points. Kevin Harris scored five points on the night.

Shane Collins led the scoring for the Badgers with 19 points followed by Chace McCaskill with 10 points.

Central High will face Ryan in the first round of the Stephens County Tournament on Tuesday night Jan. 22 at 7:30 p.m. from Marlow High School.

  • 4-20 Central High baseball.jpg Bronchos boast top-notch backstops

    Central High coach Jeff Jones has had to tinker with his lineup to get the best Bronchos on the field for most of the year, but one position he hasn’t had to worry about is catcher.
    That consistency came in the form of two very different players.
    First, there’s the unheralded freshman Keeton Sallee. Flirting with a .400 batting average, Sallee is one of the Bronchos’ best offensive weapons. On defense, his quick release and strong arm cause headaches for opponents on the basepath. Just months into his high-school career, he’s performing admirably.
