Kora Keith went off for six treys and led all scorers with 29 points in a 65-41 victory at Bethany last Friday night.

In fact, Purcell swept both games in the Bethany Festival edging Elk City the day before, 46-42.

Keith was red hot in the festival finishing with 40 points in the two games including nine buckets from downtown.

Emily Madden knocked down 30 points in the two games as Purcell hiked its season record to 3-5 on the season. The senior cut the strings for a team high 14 against Elk City and popped the nylons for 16 against Bethany.

Coach David Sikes’ Dragons were to host Lexington Tuesday while the boys remain in COVID quarantine.

Purcell Athletic Director Carol Testa said there will be no game Friday at Marlow. The trip to the Beggs Tournament last weekend was called off due to quarantine for the boys.

Purcell jumped out to a 13-11 lead in the first quarter and poured it on the hosts in the second and third periods when they ripped off 22 and 19 points respectively in those two quarters.

The Elk City game was much closer with the scored tied at 20-all at the end of the first half.

The Dragons out-scored the Lady Elks 26-22 in the final two frames to post the victory.

“The girls played great during the Bethany Festival,” Sikes said. “I’m hoping we can build on these two wins from here on out.

“I saw a lot of growth from our sophomore point guard KK Eck. We also had great leadership from our seniors,” he concluded.

Purcell’s next scheduled game is next Tuesday at home with Washington.
