Brock earns trip to TSU with quarterfinal win
After a contentious opening period produced a margin of just four points, Brock’s Lady Eagles proved more efficient on both ends of the court in the second quarter, as well as the balance of the contest against Grandview on Tuesday at Nolan Catholic High School.
The Lady Zebras could not match the pace as Brock gained control of the inside en route to a 53-35 Class 2A Region II quarterfinal win. Senior Taylor Fulmer put an exclamation point on the Lady Eagles’ eventual dominance, hitting a buzzer-beating three as the third quarter expired.
With the victory, Brock returns to the Region II tournament at Tarleton State University’s Wisdom Gym on Friday. The Lady Eagles will meet the winner of the Alba Golden-Life Oak Cliff quarterfinal at 8 p.m.
Aledo’s season ends with loss to Lady Jackets
Down a dozen points to Cleburne at halftime, the Aledo Ladycats fought back to trail by seven at the end of the third in a Class 4A Region I quarterfinal at Mansfield, Tuesday.
But the balance of the Ladycats’ comeback in the final period fell just short as Aledo’s season ended with a 52-49 loss to the Lady Jackets.
