Velma-Alma girls fall in third-place game

VELMA — Just one night after turning in one of their best performances of the season against Amber-Pocasset, things fell apart for the Lady Comets on Saturday.

In the third place game of the Bullet Energy Comet Classic, V-A couldn’t find its rhythm against Rush Springs, as the Lady Redskins used a 10-0 run in the third quarter to gain their second victory over the Lady Comets this season by a score of 47-38.

“We didn’t play smart out there,” V-A coach Jerry Garrett said. “Just fouling when you don’t need to foul and too many defensive breakdowns. It was poor effort from us on both sides of the ball. Hats off to Rush Springs, they did a good job of getting us out of our offense.”

With 4:18 left in the third, the Lady Comets were down 26-22, but by the time the 1:06 mark hit, the lead was 36-22.

At the end of the third, Rush Springs had built a 37-25 lead, and never let the Lady Comets get any closer than nine points in the fourth quarter.

V-A (2-3) managed to get within six points at the 6:00 mark of the second quarter, before heading into the locker room down 25-18.

Leading the scoring for the Lady Comets was Teddi Southerland with 12 points, followed by Kylee Saville with eight points. Samantha Moore scored five points in the contest.

Rush Springs was paced by Kaylin Rennaker with 16 points followed by Dava Ballard with 13 points.




For the Comanche Lady Indians, it was close, but not close enough.

Despite having an early lead in the first quarter, and getting to within one point at 33-32 with 1:32 left in the third, HHS managed to pull away in the fourth and claim a 55-41 victory.

“We kinda reverted back to where we’ve been the last couple of games, and just quit scoring,” Comanche head coach Sean Hushbeck said. “Some of it might be fatigue, and when your frustrated fatigue has a little bigger of an effect on you. You hope more and more game experience will help with things like that. We just need to build and take small steps so we can get better.”

After the Lady Indians cut the lead to one point, Healdton went on a 4-0 run to close out the third quarter leading 37-32. CHS was outscored 18-9 in the fourth as the Lady Bulldogs closed out the contest.

Things looked hopeful for Comanche as the Lady Indians were within striking distance at 27-24 going into halftime, but couldn’t mount a comeback in the second half.

Leading the scoring for the Lady Indians (1-3) was Jenny Simpson with 11 points followed by Baylee Morgan with nine points. Alexis Duran scored seven points.

Healdton was led by Lynsie Cantwell who led all scorers with 20 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.
