Fox rallies past Central High

DUNCAN — A district championship was in sight for Central High in the second quarter as it held a two-touchdown lead over the undisputed District B-2 favorite.

Then the real Fox showed up and the Bronchos stepped aside.

Fox quickly bounced back from a 14-0 deficit to beat Central High 50-22 and stay on pace for the district title.

“They had a long play and got one of their quick-strike touchdowns, then they did a pooch kick and we fumbled it and they scored and suddenly they are up two points,” Central High coach Darren Lamar said. “Once they got a little ahead, we let it get in our heads and it turned into an avalanche.”

The Foxes (7-0, 6-0 district) racked up 44 points in the second and third quarters as they pulled away.

Kevin Harris, who came into the game averaging more than 24 points per game, scored all three of Central High’s touchdowns, two on runs before tacking on one more in the third quarter on an interception return. He also ran in a 2-point conversion.

“We did some good things offensively,” Lamar said. “Really, we should have been up three scores but we had a drive stall after we were first-and-goal on about the 6.

“We came out of the gate fired up, hitting and tackling and giving Kevin space to run the ball,” he added. “When things started to go bad, though, they went bad on both sides of the ball and we couldn’t recover.”

Central High (5-2, 4-2) is still on track to make the playoffs, but getting a home game in the postseason is now much more difficult, likely needing to win their final three games and then coming out on top in a tiebreaker.

“The main thing the guys need to keep in mind is that if we win out, we can still finish second (in the district),” Lamar said. “The title is pretty much out, but a home playoff game is still out there.”

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.
