The 8th grade Necks gave Sabine all they wanted Thursday night, but could not connect on a last second shot to win in overtime. White Oak tied the game in the closing seconds of the 4th quarter, but eventually only mustered 3 points in the extra period. Brock Reddic was the only Roughneck in double digits with 10 points. White Oak drops to 3-5 on the season and 2-4 in district play. White Oak travels to Gladewater next week in a pivotal district road game.
“The guys played hard, probably the overall best game of the season in terms of ball movement and turnovers. Brock played well inside, Noah Fritsche knocked down 2 big shots in the first half. This is a game in which hopefully we learn that when you have a chance to put your opponent away, you do it.”
