Frederick girls, Comanche boys are consolation champs

MARLOW — Less than 24 hours after a successful comeback victory against Empire, the Bray-Doyle Lady Donkeys suffered a hangover against Frederick on Saturday afternoon.

Three straight quarters of single digit scoring made life difficult for the Lady Donkeys as the Lady Bombers were able to capitalize and claim the girls consolation championship  at the Stephens County Tournament with a 48-29 victory.

“I thought we kept battling,” B-D coach Frank Moser said. “Frederick shot the ball really well today and I was hoping they would miss some shots. It was just one of those  days where it seemed like nothing was going right for us. “We had a lot of foul trouble and that didn’t help us either. When you have a lot of turnovers that puts a lot of pressure on a team and we had too many of them today.”

By the time the Lady Donkeys reached 20 points, it was already late in the fourth quarter at the 3:34 mark when FHS held a 48-23 lead.

It was an early first quarter run though that gave the Lady Bombers all the momentum they would need to claim victory.

With the score at 5-2 at the 6:02 mark of the first quarter, FHS took control with a 12-3 run that made the advantage 17-5 going into the second quarter.

B-D’s struggles continued in the second, as the Lady Donkeys could only manage nine points, leaving them in a 31-14 hole going into halftime.

A four point third quarter sealed the game for the Lady Donkeys as they finished 1-2 in the Stephens County tournament.

Morgan Kovar led the way scoring wise for the Lady Donkeys (6-13) with 10 points, followed by Taylor Nichols with seven points. Erica Hatfield registered six points, with  Ashlee Kelly scoring four points as well as totaling a team-high 16 rebounds.

Frederick (7-9) was paced by Courtney Haynes with 11 points followed by Amani Shabazz with 10 points. Faith Roady added seven points in the contest.

Bray-Doyle will be back in action Tuesday night Jan. 29 on the road against Waurika with tip-off set for 6:30 p.m.

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.
Either time is fine.
