Empire tops Donkeys

EMPIRE — Monday night saw one team leave Bulldog Gymnasium still unbeaten on the season, while another left still looking to make early season adjustments.

After leading 16-7 at the end of the first, Empire put its foot on the gas pedal and pulled away from Bray-Doyle, resulting in a 47-32 victory.

“Defensively we didn’t play that bad I thought,” Empire coach Ryan Green said. “Offensively we were pretty bad. We haven’t shot the ball well in two games this season at all. We’re not making the open shots when we have them. Wins always help so that’s good for us in the end.”

B-D showed improvement from its season opener, as the Donkeys made life difficult early on for the Bulldogs, with tough defense at the point and down low.  

But, EHS’ speed proved to be too much as fast breaks and open shots helped build an early lead for the Bulldogs.

With 6:28 left in the third, the Donkeys got to within 14 points at 36-22, but it wouldn’t get any better on the evening for the boys in blue.

Leading the scoring on the evening for the Bulldogs was Corbin Henderson scoring 15 points followed by Cordell Setters with 13 points. Drew Ferguson scored four points.

“These guys are going to get better as the season goes on,” Green said. “We’re just a work in progress right now and there’s things we need to work on.”

Bray-Doyle was led in scoring by Craig Brown with 10 points followed by Greg Perez with five points.

Empire will be back in action this evening on the road facing Waurika at 8 p.m. while the Donkeys will be hosting Cement on Friday Nov. 30 also at 8 p.m.
