Darrian Gilmore sank two free throws with 3.3 seconds left in overtime to lead Hallsville to a 67-66 win over Sulphur Springs Friday.

It was not supposed to be such an epic battle. But it was.


Lady Cat five survives foul fest

HALLSVILLE – The good news for the Sulphur Springs Lady Cats on Friday night was that they finished their game with five players on the court.

That seemed in doubt for much of the contest against the Hallsville Lady Bobcats as they were whistled for 17 fouls in the first half and 28 overall in the 57-36 loss.

By midway of the second quarter, three starters had collected at least three fouls each, and when the game ended, three Lady Cats had fouled out and two more had four fouls. That allowed the Lady Bobcats to go to the free throw line 37 times, including 15 times in the second quarter when they expanded a 4-point lead into a 16-point halftime advantage.


Soccer: Wildcats shutout Pittsburg, 2-0

PITTSBURG — The Wildcats registered their second consecutive shutout of the soccer season, downing Pittsburg 2-0 here Friday in tournament competition.

“Adrian Correa scored the first goal and was assisted by Juan Juarez. It was a very nice goal that came about 15 minutes into the game,” said Wildcat head soccer coach Andy Holt. “We played a ball to our forward and he knocked it back to one of our midfielders who then played a one touch pass to Juarez running down the line.  Juarez then sent a nice cross backside to Correa who headed the ball in the back of the net.  We played well in the first half, creating several opportunities, but only finishing the one.”
