Next Tuesday, Dec. 7, the Bulldogs will host Cross Roads, with a 5 p.m. junior varsity contest opening a two-game slate, and the next weekend, Dec. 9-11, they will play in the Frankston Indian Invitational tournament.
Kemp will visit Scurry-Rosser Tuesday, Dec. 7, also opening at 5 p.m., and then will travel to Brownsboro Dec. 9-11 to play in the Great East Texas Shoot-Out.
At Eustace, the former district foes looked as if they would play yet another one- or two-point game, having done so twice in each of the last two years, with Eustace holding a slim 12-11 lead after the first quarter.
That didn’t change in the second quarter, as Eustace still led by one, 23-22, going into halftime.
The third quarter, however, went to Kemp, as the visitors outscored the Bulldogs 20-9 to take a 10-point advantage, 42-32, going into the fourth quarter.
In the final frame, Kemp forged an 11-9 edge to win by 12 points.
Yellowjackets senior Ryan Emfinger led all scorers with 19 points, with Jeff Goldman and Riley Lazard both scoring 11 points, along with six points from Jake Goldman, four from Cody Dunagan and two from Blake Watkins.
John Bradburn led Eustace with 15 points, as Braden Strickland had 11 and Addison Scott scored seven, with Chad Barina adding three, both Josh Dunn and Jordan Foote scoring two points and Taylor Caldwell chipping in a free throw.

Monitor Staff Reports
MABANK–The Mabank Little League Football Association’s PeeWee team won the area Little League Super Bowl Nov. 20 in Quinlan.
The PeeWee Panthers defeated the Eustace Bulldogs 13-0 to win the Tri-County Football Association championship.
“I just wanted to congratulate the boys on a great season this year,” head coach Dean Gibbs (also Mabank football commissioner) wrote later. It was a lot of fun and a lot of hard work.
“We set goals at the first of the year and we accomplished them all. That makes me really proud of my team,” he noted. “Hard work, determination and discipline makes champions, and that’s what my guys displayed.
“I just want to thank all my assistant coaches, team-moms, parents and fans,” he added. “We could not have had a successful year without all of your support on a great season.”
Todd Brown, MLLFA president and PeeWee assistant coach also wrote to thank the players for all of their hard work.
“It has been an awesome year! We are so proud of our boys,” Brown said. “Thanks to all the parents, who have been great this year. They have come out and supported the kids at every game.
“Also, thank you to all the coaches. They are at every practice twice, sometimes three times a week with the boys,” Brown added.
“I want to give a special thanks to the city of Mabank for expanding and developing a new practice field for kids to come play and practice baseball, soccer and football,” Brown said.

Monitor Staff Reports
EUSTACE–Nine Eustace Bulldogs were named to District 6-2A all-district football teams by loop coaches recently.
The district’s final representative, the Grandview Zebras, fell to defending 2A Division II champion Daingerfield in the regional finals, 37-20, Friday, and the all-district selections were released Monday.
As the unbeaten district champion, the Zebras dominated all-loop selections, almost sweeping the superlatives, with the exception of Utility Player of the Year, which went to Palmer senior Cord Langthorn.
In addition to MVP (senior Daniel Spencer), Offensive and Defensive Players of the Year (seniors Derek Jarrell and Rodney Bosher, respectively) and Lineman of the Year (junior Davis Scarbrough), the Zebras also had the Newcomer of the Year (sophomore Caleb Armstrong).
The Zebras also placed three players on the first-team offense and six players on the first-team defense.
Four Eustace players were named to the first-team offense – senior fullback Jacob Petillo, junior running back Justin Bersterman, and two senior offensive linemen, Zach Stokes and Owen Babcock (at center).
Four more Bulldogs were named to the second-team offense – junior quarterback Jacob McCarter, and three seniors, wide receiver Addison Scott, offensive lineman Dillon Brown and tight end Taylor Brown.
Junior linebacker Blake Ward was named to the second-team defense, the only Bulldog defender picked to the first or second teams.
Honorable mention went to Bulldogs Taylor Caldwell, Colby McKinney, Derek Holmes, Ahmed Abuhatab and Braden Strickland.
Strickland, McCarter, Taylor Brown and Babcock were named to the Academic All-District team, along with Tyson Oliver, Jordan Foote, Tyler Folsom, Kyle Purselley and Dillon Gragson.
