Lady Bronchos comeback to beat EHS

DUNCAN — Just call those Central High Lady Bronchos the comeback kids.

Down by 12 points in the fourth quarter Saturday night, CHHS stormed back and won the district title by a 58-53 score over Empire at Wilson High School.

“I thought Empire played well the entire game,” Central High coach Chad Weldon said. “We stepped it up late on in the fourth and did what we needed to do to win.”

Empire held a 21-13 lead after the first quarter, before the lead was slimmed down to four points at 27-23 going into the halftime break.

However, the big turning point of the game was the last four minutes of the fourth quarter when Empire players Alyssa George, Kaelyn Allensworth and Melaina Yearby all fouled out of the game.

Empire was outscored 23-14 in the final stanza.

Central High’s Lora-Lynn Loomis was more than happy to take advantage as she turned in a solid performance scoring a game-high 31 points, including going 11-for-12 from the free throw line in the fourth quarter.

As a team the Lady Bronchos finished 23-of-29 from the charity stripe compared to Empire’s 6-of-10 on the night.

“It’s hard to beat a team when you only get to the free throw line 10 times,” Empire coach Jason Allensworth said. “We played great for three and a half quarters, but it was that fourth quarter that killed us. We simply didn’t play well enough to finish the game off. Lora-Lynn Loomis really stepped up in the clutch for Central High tonight.”

Other scorers for the Lady Bronchos (16-6) included Faith Harris and Lacie Phillips each with nine points. Aleia Daniels added six points with Caitlyn White putting in three points.

Empire (14-10) was led by Alyssa George with 16 points followed by Melaina Yearby with 10 points. Ashlie Atkinson scored nine points, with Jessica Carney, Kaelyn Allensworth and Sherre Dewey all added six points in the contest.

Central High will now move on and play the winner of Dale/Konawa on Thursday Feb. 21 at 6:30 p.m. from Wynnewood High School.

Empire will play the loser of that same game also on Thursday Feb. 21 at 1:30 p.m. from Wynnewood High School.

    Players such as Ruben Patterson, Raja Bell, Shane Battier, Ron Artest and Bruce Bowen all had the tag attached to their name, despite Bryant putting up big numbers against them.
