Little Axe ousts Outlaws

MARLOW — One foot landed in the back-right corner of the end zone, and just like that, Marlow’s short-lived celebration and its hopes of reaching the playoffs came to an end Thursday night.

An fiery celebration ensued as Marlow took its first lead of the game on a touchdown run with 7:09 left in the game, but Little Axe answered on the next drive, coming through on third-and-goal from the 15 as Seven Dye made an over-the-shoulder grab and stayed on bounds for a touchdown and the lead  with 3:42 left.

The Outlaws couldn’t answer back, falling 22-19 in a loss that all but eliminates them from postseason.

With junior tailback Trey Coffman — who represents 61 percent of Marlow’s total offensive yards this season — sideline from the first quarter on with an ankle injury, it was up to the rest of the Outlaws’ backs to carry the offense.

At times, the group looked great, breaking off lengthy runs. But Coffman’s secure grip was greatly missed as the Outlaws coughed the ball up three times, including one fumble which was returned 63 yards for a touchdown to give the Indians a 14-7 less than 2 minutes into the third quarter.

The Outlaws (3-5, 1-4 district) came up with a defensive touchdown of their own on the final play of the period as Nick Yates returned an interception 68 yards. Comanche’s kick was blocked and it trailed 14-13 heading into the fourth.

With 7:09 left, Dominic Brisco dove in from 2 yards out, lifting both arms straight up in the air as he rose to his feet after giving Marlow a 19-14 lead and drawing an explosion of cheers from the stands.

After Little Axe (3-5, 1-3) retook the lead less than 3 minutes later the Outlaws struggled to move the ball, turning the ball over on downs after failing to convert on fourth-and-four.

Brisco finished with 65 yards on 10 carries, while Beau Meshell had 47 yards on seven carries and Anthony Green ran for 23 yards and a touchdown.

Marlow, which was 0-5 passing, finished with 157 yards of offense, while Little Axe had 201 yards, including 135 through the air.

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.
