MHS boys win, girls fall to Bridge Creek

MARLOW — Friday night against Bridge Creek saw a split for the Marlow basketball teams.

While the Outlaws cruised to victory over the Bobcats, the Lady Outlaws struggled and eventually saw their late rally fall short.

Head coach Kirk Harris did everything in his power to help his squad win Friday night against the No. 20 Lady Bobcats, literally.

With 4:37 left in the third quarter, Harris received a technical foul, which seemed to spring his team into action as the Lady Outlaws fought back.

Ultimately though, two quarters of single digit scoring were too much to overcome as the Lady Outlaws suffered their third straight defeat.

“We’ve got to be mentally tougher on the floor,” Harris said. “We just took too many quick shots. I knew Bridge Creek had size and would get after us. The bottom line is we just need to do a better job offensively.”

With 4:05 left in the fourth, MHS pulled to within two points at 47-45 but could never tie or take the lead the rest of the way.

Ashley O’Dell led the scoring for the Lady Outlaws (2-6) with 18 points on the night, followed by Avery Walker with 16. Diamond Morris added six points.

Lexi Cowan paced the Lady Bobcats (5-2) with 12 points followed by Brittany Cain with 10 points.

If there was ever a way to start the new year with a bang, the Outlaws did it against the Bobcats.

Marlow trailed for just 1:56 in the first quarter and never looked back as the Outlaws improved to 6-2 with a convincing victory.

“We worked a lot on defense over the break and it’s nice to get a win like this,” Marlow coach John Garrett said. “Our guys were just getting after it the whole game. I’m very happy with them and this was a big win for us.”

Bridge Creek kept things close at the end of the first only being down 10-9, but Marlow took over from there.

Jackson Huddleston led the Outlaws with 18 points on the night, followed by Kirby Neufeld with 16. Zac Beasler scored seven, while Wes Coast and Braeden O’Dell each put in six.

Bridge Creek (1-7) was led by Jesse Cranford with six points, followed by Omar Martinez and Jacob Mason each with five points.

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.
