    The Dale Lady Pirates wasted no time in securing their 12th win of the season, exploding for 56 first-half points on their way to a 79-21 romp of Strother in the first round of the Konawa Tournament Thursday.
     
    Dale (12-1) blasted the Lady Yellowjackets for 28 points in each of the first two quarters and led by 46 points at halftime.
     
    Dale’s Breck Clark led all scorers with 19 points. Teammate Lexes Satterwhite nailed three treys on her way to 18 points, and Sam Barry and Brayden Newton each knocked down two 3-pointers.
     
    The Class 2A No. 2 Lady Pirates will look to continue their tournament run at 7 p.m. today against Tuttle, which took down Holdenville Thursday.
     
    Sixth-ranked Piratesdrop Holdenville
     
    Class 2A’s sixth-ranked Dale Pirates, behind Evan Anderson’s game-high 21 points, dropped Holdenville by a 52-44 count Thursday in the first round of the Konawa Tournament.
     
    It’s Anderson’s fourth consecutive game of 20 or more points.
     
    The Pirates trailed by one after the first quarter (15-14), and led 27-23 to open the second half. Holdenville had that lead cut to 38-36 to start the fourth.
     
    “The important thing is that we won, but we’ll have to play better tomorrow to stay in the winners’ bracket,” said DHS coach Jeff Edmonson.
     
    Jace Wilkins scored 11 points for the Pirates, and Tanner Nelson added all six of his in Dale’s 14-8 run over the final eight minutes of play.
     
    Ryan Hickerson paced Holdenville with 17 points.
     
    Now 11-3, Dale will face Lexington at 8:20 p.m. today in the semifinals.
