Central tops Waurika, 73-62; Lady Bronchos pull out 35-34 win

DUNCAN — Sometimes, the best wins come on the road in tough situations.

Despite taking a deficit into halftime, the Central High Bronchos hanged tough and managed to mount a second half comeback to defeat Waurika 73-62 Thursday night.

“It wasn’t a real pretty game for us that’s for sure,” Central High coach John Nease said. “But it was a hard fought win and we’ll take it. We played really well in the second half. In the first half we were missing shots that we would normally make, plus having foul trouble made life difficult.”

Central High responded in the second half to take a 46-44 lead at the end of the third quarter, before closing the game out in the fourth.

Waurika held the Bronchos in check throughout the first half, holding an 18-11 lead at the end of the first before going into halftime ahead 29-26.

“I just told the guys to slow things down and not panic,” Nease said about his speech at halftime. “We composed ourselves and managed to get a good win because of it.”

Dallin Ferrin led the way for the Bronchos (4-2) with 38 points followed by Kevin Harris with 24 points. Connor Albiston and John Repp each scored four points on the night.

Meanwhile, the Lady Bronchos (5-1) were also forced to endure a close encounter as they managed to survive against the Lady Eagles, winning 35-34.

It was a close game throughout the first half as CHHS held a slim 20-19 lead going into halftime.

Waurika gained the advantage in the third, leading 27-26 going into the fourth, before Central High outscored WHS 9-7 to claim the narrow victory.

Lora-Lynn Loomis led the scoring with 13 points followed by Caitlyn White with 11 points, while Lacie Phillips scored five points on the evening. Aleia Daniels added three points.

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.
