Ada —

The Tigers will face third-ranked Lookeba-Sickles on Thursday at 8 p.m. at Dale High School in a Class B regional winnersí bracket contest.


Allen girls rally past Roff for district title


ROFF — The Allen Lady Mustangs overcame a 28-11 halftime deficit to outscore the Class A 12th-ranked Roff Lady Tigers by a 31-10 margin in the second half and claim a 42-38 district championship on Saturday.

Sandra Howshar tossed in 12 points, including a pair of 3-pointers, and Miranda Raney ended up with 11 points and two treys as well.

Hannah Heck was next on the scoring chart with seven points for the winners. Charlea Leonard followed with five points and seven rebounds and Faith Caldwell registered four blocked shots.

“It was a physical game. I was proud of our girls. We got down by 17 at the half and kept fighting,” said Allen head coach Jeremy Strong. “In the first half, we really couldn’t get anything going offensively or defensively. In the third quarter, we got after them defensively.”

Lauren Trimmer connected on two treys and finished with 11 points to lead Roff and Amy Crawford hit one 3-pointer and finished with nine points. Breecia Crawford followed with seven points in a losing effort.

It was the first time that Allen beat Roff in four attempts this season.

“We played pretty well the first half, but the second half they outplayed us. Their guards worked hard on defense after halftime, and our guard play simply did not respond to it,” said Roff head coach Blake Crawford.
