January 28, 2012

On Friday evening, the Perryton Rangers improved to 3-1 in District 1-3A play by defeating the Borger Bulldogs 76-49 in Perryton.

Comanches fall to Booker in Battle of the Tribes

January 28, 2012

The West Texas Comanches have lost their last two games at the free throw line. The last game was lack of visits to the line vs many for the other team, and last night was close to being a rerun. The game was close from the tip off with fourteen lead changes and the score was tied four times. In the fourth quarter, the Comanches were trailing by two, when several “missed calls” by the officials and a technical foul on WT’s coach for voicing his opinion about the accuracy of the calls. After the “T”, the team was forced to foul to stop the clock.

Short-handed Lady Comanches fall to Booker in District 1-1A play

January 28, 2012

In spite of having only six players to start the game, and ending with just foUr on the floor, the Lady Comanches put up a valiant effort in a losing battle to Booker 47-26. The rest of the team was either hurt or at the County LIve Stock Show last night. Two of the girls fouled out in the last 10 seconds of the game, leaving four players on the floor. The girls were exhausted the fourth quarter and I give kudos to Sarah Kelly, Katelyn Wilson, Madison Heston, Alyssa Snider, Abby Summers, and Devin DeLapp for their heart.
