  • Four Earlsboro girls scored in double figures Tuesday in a 78-38 romp of Tupelo.
     
    Ranked ninth in Class B, Earlsboro received double-figure sscoring from Brittany Coon (26), Megan Ashley (19), Kortney Jones (14) and Demi Coon (13).
     
    Brittany Coon knocked down three 3-point field goals and sister Demi Coon recorded one 3-pointer. Jones also had a trey.
     
    Earlsboro has won five straight games since losing to Okarche.
     
    A slow start doomed Earlsboro to a 54-47 loss at the hands of Tupelo, despite a game-high 18 points from Ethan Bateman.
     
    Bateman led a charge that erased a 23-point Wildcat deficit, tying the game at 41 in the fourth quarter. Earlsboro (7-12) couldn’t keep up their torrential pace, however, and Tupelo outscored the Wildcats 13-6 the rest of the way.
     
    The Tigers, who opened a 31-14 halftime lead, were led by John Umstead’s 14 points. Teammate Chisum Henry contributed a baker’s dozen.
     
    Derick McCormick added 14 for the visitors, who will take on No. 18 Strother at Earlsboro Saturday for homecoming. The coronation is slated for 5:30 p.m.
