MacArthur girls use pressure to top Altus
Coaches know that early in the season defense can make or break a team as players try find their shooting touch and also learn the more complex offensive schemes.
And when a team does what a coach asks them to do at the defense end and they see it works, it’s like a light turning on in their brains.
That’s just what happened with MacArthur’s girls Friday against Altus in the season opener for most state football schools, including all three Lawton programs.
Around Lawton, Eisenhower girls held off Del City down the stretch for a 59-56 victory but the news wasn’t as good as the Ike boys lost to the Delmen.
