Monitor Staff Reports
MABANK–Gaining a one-point halftime lead, the Mabank Panthers held off
the visiting T.K. Gorman Crusaders to take a narrow 61-59 win in their
season and home opener Tuesday night.
The Panthers were scheduled to visit the Lindale Eagles Friday night,
and will host two games in the TASO Classic Monday and Tuesday, Nov.
23-24, with opponents and game times to be announced.
Mabank Panthers Jordan Allen (left) and Unterrious Toliver (20) try to
pressure T.K. Gorman Crusader Hunter Matzke (32) into a fumble in front
of the Mabank bench during the Panthers' 61-59 season-opening win over
the visiting Crusaders Tuesday.
Tuesday, Dec. 1, the Panthers will host the Van Vandals for a
three-game slate, opening with a 4:30 p.m. freshman contest, and Dec.
3-5, the Panthers will host the 11th annual Cedar Creek Lake Shoot-Out.
Originally scheduled to face Malakoff, the Panthers were able to book
T.K. Gorman because Malakoff was in the football playoffs last weekend.
Although a TAPPS school, the Crusaders proved to be nearly a match for
the Panthers in both size and quickness.
The Crusaders took an early 14-11 lead on a trio of 3-point baskets from
Alex Fergerson, Jack Ryder and Brent Corley, while the Panthers
countered with balanced scoring, as four of the five starters hit
In the second quarter, Panther Jacob Woodard got hot from outside,
hitting a pair of treys to go along with four points each from
Unterrious Toliver and Tray Phillips.
Ahead by one at halftime, 28-27, the Panthers were able to maintain that
lead in fast-paced third quarter, with Tyler Fisher taking the ball
Fisher scored 12 of his game-high 19 points in the third quarter,
including 6-of-8 from the free throw line, with Jordan Allen hitting a
trey for his only points and Griffin Marshall adding four points.
In the fourth quarter, the Panthers held off the Crusaders with four
points each from Phillips and Fisher, although the Crusaders spent a lot
of time at the free throw line – Fergerson hit 5-of-6 to score 11 of his
team-high 13 points in the final frame.
The score probably wouldn’t have been that close if the Panthers had
done better at the charity stripe, as they hit 50 percent – 16-of-32 –
during the contest.
In addition to Fisher’s 19 points, Woodard finished with 12 points,
Phillips had 11 and Marshall had nine.
Toliver finished with five points, while Allen had three and James
In addition to Fergerson’s 13 points, Michael Droder had 10 points for
to play hockey at the AAC
