MABANK–After forging a 10-point halftime lead, the Mabank Panthers held off a determined comeback by T.K. Gorman’s Crusaders to take a 40-37 victory Tuesday in the season opener for both clubs.
The Panthers were scheduled to host the Lindale Eagles Friday night before hosting the Kaufman Thanksgiving Classic tournament Monday and Tuesday, Nov. 22-23.
Following the Thanksgiving break, the Panthers will visit Van Tuesday, Nov. 30, with a 5 p.m. freshman contest opening a three-game slate.
The next weekend, Thursday through Saturday, Dec. 2-4, the Panthers will host the 12th annual Cedar Creek Lake Shoot-out.
Tuesday’s contest was originally scheduled to be played in Tyler, but was moved to Mabank earlier in the day.

Mabank Panther post David Marler (52) sticks his leg out to impede T.K. Gorman Crusader Ani Umana's reach for the ball during the first quarter of Mabank's 40-37 win over the visiting Crusaders Tuesday. Marler was charged with a foul on the play.

Both teams played evenly through the first quarter, with Mabank forging a slim 12-10 lead behind four points (including a 3-point basket) from Jordan Allen and three points from David Marler.
Gorman countered with six points (including a trey) from Ben Ashworth and two baskets from post Ani Umana.
In the second quarter, the Panthers started pulling away, holding the Crusaders to just one basket (a trey by Sean Goforth) and three free throws from Ashworth.
On offense, 6-7 Panther senior post T.C. Greene made his presence felt, hitting three baskets, while Brandon Hatfield, Colton Thomas and Allen all added baskets.
In the third quarter, the Crusaders outscored the Panthers 13-6 behind five points from Umana and a trey from Alexander Hovaney, offsetting two baskets by Greene.
That’s as close as the Crusaders would get, however, as both teams scored eight points in the fourth quarter.
Allen scored five on a trey and a pair of free throws, with Greene adding a basket, but the Crusaders’ only basket was trey by Hovaney.
Greene finished with 12 points to lead the Panthers, with Allen adding 11.
Hatfield finished with five, while Jacob Ortiz, Thomas and Marler all had three points, Taylor Willeford had two points and Hunter Carrico added a free throw.
Ashworth led the Crusaders with 12 points, with Umana adding 10.

SCURRY–Kemp’s Lady Yellowjackets took advantage of hosting Scurry-Rosser’s inexperience to notch a 65-24 blowout win Tuesday night.
Now 2-1 on the season, the Lady ’Jackets are scheduled to host the Eustace Lady Bulldogs Monday, Nov. 22, with a 4:30 p.m. freshman contest opening a three-game slate.
Tuesday, Nov. 23, the Lady ’Jackets will host another set of Lady Bulldogs from Edgewood, again opening with a 4:30 p.m. freshman game.
Following the Thanksgiving break, the Kemp girls will travel to Elkhart Tuesday, Nov. 30, opening with a 5 p.m. junior varsity game.
The next weekend, Dec. 2-4, the Kemp girls will play in the annual Scurry-Rosser Lady Wildcat Invitational.
“Scurry graduated seven seniors last year, and were playing with a young team, starting a freshman point guard and four sophomores, who had a tough time against our posts,” Kemp coach Kent Smith noted later.
The Lady ’Jackets opened a 14-3 lead in the first quarter and outscored the Lady Wildcats 22-6 in the second quarter to take a dominating 36-9 lead at halftime.
For the second straight contest, Kemp senior Michelle Ritterbach sat out the fourth quarter after recording a double-double, with 19 points, 11 rebounds and five steals.
Junior post Kandace Rose also posted a double-double with 16 points and 17 rebounds, while junior guard Brianna Powell barely missed a double-double, scoring 14 points, grabbing six rebounds and four steals while dishing out nine assists.
Senior post Shannon Shipp finished with six points and 12 rebounds, while first-year varsity player Maegan McVay had four points at point guard.
