SULPHUR — Following a frustrating weekend at the Bullet Energy Comet Classic, a trip to Sulphur was just what the Turner Lady Falcons needed to get back on track Monday night. 

Turner led wire-to-wire as the Lady Falcons snapped their two-game losing streak, winning 53-38 over the Oklahoma School for the Deaf Lady Indians at the Larry Wilkins Activity Center.

The 53-point outburst was the fourth highest this season for the Lady Falcons, and came at the perfect time following a pair of tough losses over the weekend in Velma-Alma against the Lady Comets and Waurika. 

“Our pressure was working better tonight,” Turner coach Aaron Norton said. “We kind of got out of sorts over the weekend at Velma, so we got back to doing what we do best tonight. Ryleigh (Parker) is one of our top scorers, and when she plays good it makes all of us better. We needed a good night out of her tonight and that’s what we got.”

Parker went for 23 points in the game, as the Lady Falcons opened the game with a 6-0 run.

OSD got on the board at the 4:42 mark of the first quarter to make it 6-2.

However, Turner would close out the opening frame in style to lead 18-7 going into the second.

Before the halftime break, the Lady Falcons led by as many as 10 points in the second, before extending their advantage to 12 points going into the locker room at 30-18.

Defense was the tone setter for the Lady Falcons in the third quarter as they held the Lady Indians to just four points while scoring 15 of their own to lead 45-22 going to the fourth.

The Lady Indians had their best offensive quarter in the fourth, outscoring the Lady Falcons 16-13.

Kodie Durst added seven points for Turner, with Tallie Tynes and Miranda Crespo each scoring six points.

The Lady Indians were led by Jacey Pawpa with 12 points followed by Miracle Pearson with 11 points and Emily Cavello with 10 points.
