Season ends for Lady Bulldogs, Lady Indians

DUNCAN — For the Empire Lady Bulldogs, it was one problem that made the difference in the first round of regionals Thursday night – foul trouble.

With two of its players fouling out in the second half, the undermanned Lady Bulldogs’ (11-4) season concluded with a 61-53 loss to the Konawa Lady Tigers.

“It was just a case where we couldn’t execute late in fourth quarter because of foul trouble,” Empire coach Jason Allensworth said. “It was a very physically demanding game.”

Freshman guard Sherre Dewey fouled out in the fourth quarter’s final minutes and junior guard Melania Yearby ran out of fouls in the third.

Senior forward Alyssa George was unstoppable around the basket, leading the team with 14 points and pulling down 27 rebounds.

GIRLS 3A REGIONALS

JONES 43 COMANCHE 22

With the first round of regionals came a welcome sight for Comanche.

Jones represented one of the few unranked teams the Lady Indians have had to face in the past few weeks.

Unfortunately, the result didn’t go the way CHS would have liked as the Lady Indians were eliminated at Washington by a score of 43-22.

JHS put its authority on the game from the start as the Lady Longhorns held a 12-4 lead after the first quarter, with the deficit extended to 30-13 at the half.

A five point third quarter made life difficult for Comanche, as Jones wasn’t in the mood to give the Lady Indians any chance of a comeback.

Payge Graham led CHS with seven points followed by Brianna Robinson with five points. Hannah Suson and Emilee White each put in three points. Julia Anderson and Baylee Fulford put in one point in the game.

Comanche ends its season with a 2-17 mark while Jones improves to 15-10 and will meet either Stroud or Prague in the next round of regionals.

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.
