Comanche sweeps Marietta for homecoming wins
Comanche sophomore Karsynn Bowles stepped off the bench and into the spotlight, helping the Lady Indians take a 38-26 homecoming win over visiting Marietta last Friday night.
Bowles had been inserted into the starting line-up to replace Kylie Roden, Comanche’s second leading scorer, who was injured in a game at Madill earlier in the week.
Bowles stepped smoothly into her role, giving Comanche some much-needed points as they battled Marietta through two-and-a-half quarters before pulling away. There were five lead changes and three ties in the game.
With 4:03 left in the third quarter, Bowles put Comanche up for good with her third three-pointer of the game that gave the home a 20-17 advantage. It was the start of a 12-0 run for Comanche to end the quarter.
Marietta cut the lead to eight points early in the fourth quarter, but Comanche senior Gracee Miller took over, scoring seven of her team-high 15 points in the final five minutes as Comanche pulled away for the win.
Comanche led 14-10 at the half and outscored Marietta 24-16 in the final two quarters.

The Comanche boys came back from a 38-point loss on Tuesday to Madill by running away from Marietta by 31 points on Friday night.
Comanche never trailed, scoring the first six points of the game on their way to a 15-2 lead at the end of the first quarter.
Comanche did not allow a field goal in the second quarter as they took a 31-3 halftime lead.
Comanche spread out the scoring with seven players scoring, with three of those finishing in double figures. Hunter Lassley scored 10 of his game-high 14 points in the first quarter, scoring off of offensive rebounds, free throws, three-point plays and baskets in the paint.
The Comanche bench got in some good playing time in the second half as Comanche went on to outscore Marietta 15-8 in the third quarter before finishing out the fourth with nine points.
Comanche: Hunter Lassley, 14; Colby Shannon, 12; Dillon Ellis, 11; Gunner King, 6; Corbin Bowen, 4; Briar Blair, 4; Hollister Pollock, 4
