DALE — Overcoming a bad second quarter, Dale's boys got back on track in the second half and beat McLoud going away, 50-32, Tuesday evening.

After jumping to a 16-5 lead to start the game, the Pirates scored just three points in the second period. The home team's shooting woes allowed the Redskins to climb back to within one point, 19-18, at halftime.

"We had one bad quarter where the shots didn't fall," Dale head coach Jeff Edmonson said. "But the other three quarters we played really well."

Dale's Taron Carter was unstoppable behind the arc. He hit six 3-pointers and finished with a game-high 18 points. Latif Tobler also had a double-digit scoring night with 10.

Tobler grabbed seven rebounds while Carter and Gunner Hathcock were each credited with six boards.

The Redskins got 11 points each from Joe Wood and Rob Hill.

With the win, Dale (No. 14 in Class 2A) improved to 14-4.

The Pirates have a week off before their next game next Tuesday at home against Christian Heritage. McLoud has a Friday home game against Byng.

Wolves upset No. 3 Carl Albert

MIDWEST CITY — In his first nine seasons as Shawnee's boys coach, Ron Arthur says none of his varsity teams had won at Carl Albert. That winless streak ended Tuesday night with a major upset.

In a very intense game, the Wolves (No. 16 in Class 5A) seized control in the third quarter and held on for a 54-45 road win over the No. 3 Titans.

Shawnee seniors Marquese Tramble and Don Murphy each scored 12 points to lead the Wolves. Junior Luke Laster was right behind with 11 points.

Most of Murphy's points came from the foul line where he made eight of nine attempts. He went 7-for-8 on free throws in the second half.

The score was close throughout the first half and Shawnee led 23-22 at halftime. The Wolves increased the lead to eight with a solid third quarter in which the hosts were limited to just nine points.

"Our defense was phenomenal tonight, which we needed because they're very athletic," Shawnee assistant coach Dustin Tenney said.

The Wolves improved to 7-8 with the win and will try to keep the momentum going Friday night at home against Chickasha.
