Outlaws look for 10 straight victories

DUNCAN — While some teams took spring break off to recharge themselves, that wasn’t the case for the No. 6 Marlow Outlaws.

MHS played four games last week, winning all four of them to improve its overall record to 10-2 on the season, and give the Outlaws nine straight wins.

Today will see Marlow back in action as the Outlaws will travel to play the Bombers of Frederick with first pitch set for 4:30 p.m.

These two teams have already met once this season, with MHS coming away with a convincing 12-0 victory on March 12 at Stone-Black Field.

“We’ve played Frederick once and they have some good kids,” Marlow coach Jeff Brewer said. “We had some momentum and that was early on in our streak. We’ll have Wakely Bergner on the mound so hopefully our kids will come out and play hard.”

Things will not get any easier for the boys in blue as they will host No. 9 Davis (11-0) on Tuesday afternoon at Stone-Black Field before traveling to the Sulphur Tournament starting on Thursday.

DUNCAN

Speaking of streaks, the No. 14 Duncan Demons (6-1) are on a streak of their own, having compiled six consecutive victories.

DHS will jump right back into district play this afternoon against rival No. 19 Lawton MacArthur (3-6) with first pitch coming at 6:30 from Lawton.

Entering this game, the Highlanders are 0-2 in district play after being swept by No. 1 Carl Albert in their only district series of the season thus far.

Duncan meanwhile, hasn’t lost since opening day against Lawton Eisenhower.

The Demons are currently 4-0 in district play after sweeping both Southeast and Ardmore this season.

These two teams will turn around and meet at Sportsman’s Park on Tuesday night at 6:30 p.m. for the conclusion of this series.

Starting on Thursday, the Demons will be in action at the Ardmore/Lone Grove Showcase taking on Class 4A Ada and Broken Bow before meeting Putnam City West and Lone Grove on Friday.
