Frederick thumps Bulldogs

MARLOW — Perhaps it was symbolic that Frederick’s logo was listed as a fighter jet in the program for the Stephens County Tournament.

Because FHS came out and unleashed an offensive barrage all over Empire.

A 33-2 run in the first quarter was more than enough space for the Bombers to work with as they punched their ticket to the semifinals with a 73-31 victory.

“It’s tough to get up for every game, and we’re trying to set the tone with our kids this year,” Frederick coach Cache Hill said. “Empire is a young team but they play hard. They have some shooters and still could have given us a good game. But, I was pleased with the way we came out and jumped on them.”

It could have been easy for the Bulldogs to pack things in at the halftime break down 52-7, but instead they came out and put up 24 points in the second half.

But, the spirited effort was far too late to make any difference in the outcome of the game as the Bombers made life extremely tough on EHS with their quickness and solid shooting.

After being tied at 2-2 at the 7:19 mark of the first quarter, Frederick decided to kick things up a notch.

By the time the Bulldogs scored again at the four minute mark, it was a 20-4 advantage for FHS, which ended with it scoring 35 points in the first quarter.

“Scoring that many points was just a plus for us,” Hill said about the first quarter. “We’re just trying to get out on top of teams as fast as we can. We just mainly wanted to set the tone with our defense and get things set up early on.”

With three quarters complete, Frederick (11-3) held a 64-20 lead which they never relinquished.

Empire (4-12) was led in scoring by Cordell Setters with 12 points followed by Cooper Hill with six points.

Braden Hill and Evan Whitt each scored five points for the Bulldogs.

Frederick’s Dusahn Farone and Levi Hanes each scored 10 points with Grant Hoover adding nine points. Dallas Mathews, Ronnie Morgan and Tyler Hicks each put in eight points.

Frederick will play Central High at 9 p.m. Thursday night in the championship semifinals, while Empire will face Ryan in the consolation semifinals at 9 p.m. Friday night.

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.
