7 points separated White Oak from Gladewater Thursday night going into the 4th quarter. The Necks played from behind all night and eventually took the lead with less than 3 minutes to go in the game. Eventually, they held firm and came out with a 38-36 win in Gladewater. Using a combination of defenses and sticking to their offensive gameplan, the Necks outscored the Bears 11 to 2 in the 4th quarter. Trent Pepper dropped in 16 to lead all scorers.
“We did alot of things defensively tonight. Some of those things we had never done in a game, just practice, and it paid off for us. The guys didn’t waiver from the plan and in the end we persevered. Outstanding road win for us.”
The win gives the Roughnecks a 4-5 season record and 3-4 in district. White Oak will host Harmony next week and then travel to Big Sandy for a late season tournament.
