  • Breck Clark scored 15 points, Brayden Newton and Danielle Dockrey each notched 11 and Class 2A’s second-ranked Dale Lady Pirates swarmed McLoud 48-18 Friday night.
     
    Dale (15-1) opened up a 25-9 halftime lead and coasted to its seventh straight win. The Lady Pirates haven’t lost since a 49-44 double-overtime setback at home against Class 4A’s No. 20 Bethel Dec. 12.
     
    Clark added eight rebounds to go with her game-high scoring total. Newton scored nine of her 11 from 3-point range, and teammate Lexes Satterwhite recorded five rebounds and three assists.
     
    Dale shot 18-of-22 (82 percent) from the charity stripe.
     
    The Lady Redskins (3-11) were led in scoring by Ashley Boyer, who recorded six points.
     
    Dale is coming off a first-place finish at the Konawa Tournament last weekend and will look for another tournament title this season at the Tri-County High School Tournament (formerly the Pott. County Tournament) next week on the campus of Oklahoma Baptist University.
     
    “In order to win we have to play well three games in a row,” Dale head coach Josh Forsythe said. “The tournament atmosphere is really good for your team, because it’s something you can’t simulate in practice. That’s why you play in these tournaments. The experience comes in handy come state playoff time.”
     
    Dale’s girls will tip off in first-round action against Wetumka at 7:30 p.m. Monday.
     
    McLoud will host Tecumseh Tuesday.

    Pirates prevail in close match
     
    Dale’s Pirates, ranked fifth in Class 2A, stretched a 27-26 halftime lead into a 52-67 win over McLoud’s Redskins Friday night.
     
    The Pirates trailed by one (13-12) after one quarter, but led 44-36 after three quarters.
     
    “It was a pretty close game all the way through,” said Dale coach Jeff Edmonson. “It stayed pretty tight.”
     
    The Pirates picked up 20 points from Jace Wilkins, who went 11-for-13 (84.6 percent) from the charity stripe. Evan Anderson continued his string of double-doubles with 16 points and 10 rebounds, and he added five assists.
     
    Caleb Banks notched five assists and five boards to go with 11 points as the Pirates improved to 14-3.
     
    “We played hard and we shot the ball well,” Edmonson said. “But we need to cut back on the turnovers.”
