Marlow teams claim district titles

DUNCAN — If there was ever a time to rise to the occasion, the Marlow Outlaws did so on Friday night in the district championship against Frederick.

Facing a hostile environment on the road, MHS kept its composure and came away with a 63-56 victory over the Bombers.

“There were times when Frederick had the game going at their speed,” Marlow coach John Garrett said. “They managed to take Zac (Beasler) out of the game completely and not let him get any shots off. But Zac didn’t get his head down and he did a good job of contributing other ways for us.”

After being tied at 25-25 going into the halftime break, the Outlaws managed to outscore the Bombers 19-17 to take a slim lead into the fourth quarter.

A huge part of the Outlaws victory was the men in blue and white shooting 15-of-16 from the free throw line in the second half.

Marlow (14-9) outscored Frederick (15-7) 19-14 in the fourth quarter to seal the victory.

“We had a time out and I told the kids ‘This is your chance to grow up’”,Garrett said. “Our guys responded and did really well. They did what they were supposed to do in order to win the game.

Wes Coast led the scoring attack with 28 points followed by Braeden O’Dell with 10 points. Kirby Neufeld scored nine points, with Jackson Huddleston and Nathan Crowson each putting in eight points.

Tyler Hicks led the Bombers with 23 points with Grant Hoover close behind with 21 points.

Marlow will play the winner of Millwood/ASTEC on Thursday night at 8 p.m. from Outlaw Gymnasium in the first round of regionals.



A solid defensive performance in the first half was more than enough cushion for the Lady Outlaws.

After holding the Lady Bombers to just 14 first half points, MHS kept the pressure up in the second half as Marlow claimed the district championship.

MHS held a 15-point lead at the break, and increased the advantage after the third quarter with a 17-10 run.

The Lady Outlaws completed a solid performance as they outscored FHS 15-11 in the fourth quarter.

Avery Walker led the Lady Outlaws (14-9) with 20 points on the night, with Ashley O’Dell adding 13 points in the contest. Diamond Morris scored seven points, with Tory Nations, Emmalee Williams, and Shayna Throckmorton all adding four points.

Frederick (9-13) was led by Courtney Haynes and Nyteala Perry with seven points each followed by Oqunia Simpson with five points.

The Lady Outlaws will meet either Millwood or ASTEC on Thursday night in the first round of regionals with tip-off set for 6:30 p.m. from Outlaw Gymnasium.

    Coach Jeff Jones realized he made a mistake after Tuesday’s 8-7 win at home versus Fletcher.
    He saw that his freshman pitcher, Dylan Jones, was struggling but he still hoped that the Bronchos could finish off the win with him on the mound. Jones had only given up one run in six full innings. Why shouldn’t the coach stick with him?
