DUNCAN — During the course of the season, second chances are few and far between.

Today however, is one of those days where a second chance is offered, at least for the Central High Bronchos (9-5).

At 4:30 this afternoon, CHHS will play host to No. 2 Sterling, a team that handed the Bronchos a 12-0 defeat just 10 days ago in the Sterling Tournament.

Central High enters today winners of six of its last nine games, but is coming off the heels of a run-rule defeat to No. 6 Marlow on Saturday afternoon.

Sterling meanwhile, is coming into the game on a two-game losing streak after suffering defeats to No. 1 Dale and Seiling on Friday afternoon.

CHHS will finish out the week hosting Fletcher on Tuesday before traveling to Bray-Doyle on Friday night for a game against the Donkeys.


After a rough start to the season, the Bray-Doyle Donkeys have quietly put together a 5-4 record.

Winners of four straight games, the Donkeys will hit the road today to take on Rush Springs (9-1) with first pitch set for 6:30 p.m.

Tuesday will see the Donkeys play Alex and Calumet in a double header at Donkey Field.

B-D will meet the Longhorns at 3 p.m. before meeting CHS at 6:30 p.m.

Later this week, the Donkeys will travel to Temple on Thursday before hosting Central High on Friday night at 6:30 p.m


Another team looking for momentum is the Empire Bulldogs (3-5), who will look to get back into the win column this afternoon against Ninnekah.

Head coach Caleb Cole and his squad enter today’s game on the heels of a two-game losing streak after suffering losses to Comanche and Rush Springs before the break.

Tuesday afternoon will see Empire travel to Temple for a contest against the Tigers, before traveling to Apache on Thursday for the start of the Apache Tournament.

Empire will face Fletcher in the first round on Thursday afternoon.


It’s been a rough start to the season for the Waurika Eagles (0-5).

Today WHS will look and get into the win column for the first time this year, as the Eagles will play host to Ryan at 6 p.m.

Things will not get easier for Waurika as the Eagles will travel to play Rush Springs on Thursday.

RSHS has already defeated the Eagles once this season on March 12, by a 6-2 score.  

Waurika will finish the week hosting Walters on Friday night.
