Eustace Bulldog Chad Barina (front) and Cross Roads Bobcat Garrett Robertson dive for a loose ball during the first half of Eustace's 58-47 overtime win over the visiting Bobcats Tuesday.

Eustace’s boys were scheduled to play in the Frankston Indian Invitational tournament this weekend before staying on the road Tuesday, Dec. 14, with a trip to face another set of Indians in Grand Saline, opening with a 5 p.m. sub-varsity game.
The Bulldogs will wind up their pre-district schedule the following weekend, Dec. 16-18, by playing in the Grand Saline Indian Invitational tournament.
Eustace opens District 14-2A play on the road Monday, Dec. 20, against the Malakoff Tigers, with a 2 p.m. junior varsity contest opening a two-game slate.
Tuesday’s contest in the E.L. Kirk Gym was a nip-and-tuck affair, with neither team able to put a sustained run together.
Cross Roads opened an 11-8 lead in the first quarter, but the Bulldogs cut the margin to just two points at halftime, 23-21.
Both teams scored seven points in the third quarter, and in the fourth quarter, the Bulldogs managed to score 17 points to Cross Roads’ 15 to tie the contest at 45 at the end of regulation time.
In the overtime period, however, it was all Eustace, as the Bulldogs outscored the Bobcats 13-2 – including 8-for-8 at the free throw line – to forge the final 11-point margin.
Chad Barina, who was all over the floor for the Bulldogs, led them with 21 points, including 6-for-6 at the charity stripe during overtime.
Dalton Lewis added 10 points, while Addison Scott had eight, Jacob McCarter and Stephen Ashton both scored six points each, Braden Strickland had four and John Bradburn added three.
Craig Ramsey led Cross Roads with 15 points, as Brandon Peyrefitte added nine, Kolton McClaun and Garrett Robertson both scored eight points each, and Dustin Lee had seven points.

Mabank will return home to face the Lone Oak Buffaloes Tuesday, Dec. 14, opening with a 4:30 p.m. freshman contest, before an open date Friday, Dec. 17.
During the Christmas break, the Panthers will continue a tradition by playing in the annual Wagstaff Holiday Classic tournament at Tyler Junior College Monday through Wednesday, Dec. 27-29.
Tuesday, the Panthers took a 10-9 lead in the first quarter against the Cardinals, but a combination of icy-cold shooting and a pretty serious case of stonefingers kept Mabank scoreless through the second quarter.
The Cardinals didn’t score a lot, thanks to tough defense by the Panthers, but the resulting 8-0 run gave them a 17-10 halftime lead.
In the third quarter, the pace picked up considerably, as the Panthers outscored the Cardinals 23-19 to pull within three points at 36-33.
During the final frame, the Cardinals outscored Mabank 21-17 to forge the final seven-point margin, thanks to an 11-of-16 showing at the free throw line, with Dillon McClendon hitting 9-of-13.
Jordan Allen led the Panthers with 22 points, including a trio of 3-point baskets, but he was the only one in double figures.
David Marler had seven points, Ryan Walker and T.C. Greene both scored six points, Jacob Ortiz scored four points, Brandon Hatfield had three and Chas Hall added a fourth-quarter basket.
McClendon led all scorers with 29 points, including four treys, but he was the only Cardinal in double figures.
