The Hooker Bulldogs advanced to the finals of the Texhoma Tournament with an impressive showing against the Turpin Cardinals, winning 57-36.

After taking a 13-9 lead in the first quarter, Hooker took complete control of the game with a 21-6 second quarter that put the Bulldogs up comfortably at half, 34-15.

Hooker increased their lead to 23 by the end of the third with an 11-7 advantage in the quarter.

Turpin won the fourth 14-11, but it was too little too late for the Cardinals.

Hooker’s Chad Kennedy was the game’s only player to reach double figures with 14; John Godfrey scored 9, and Hayden Ukens added 8. Nine different Bulldogs scored.

Edgar Anchondo scored 8 for Turpin, and seven other players scored.

Hooker (15-3) faced county-rival Texhoma (13-6), who defeated Tyrone 69-58 in their semi-final matchup.

Texhoma 56, Hooker 28 

The Hooker Lady Bulldogs fell behind early and could never recover, losing to the Texhoma Red Devils 56-28.

It was as though one team was ready to play, and the other was not, as Texhoma jumped out to a 17-2 first quarter lead.

Hooker seemed to at least balance the ship in the second quarter, but Texhoma still kept an 11-10 advantage in the quarter to take a commanding 28-12 lead at halftime.

Texhoma blew away any hopes of a Lady Dawgs comeback in the third, outscoring Hooker 18-7 to go up by 27 (46-19).

Texhoma held a 10-9 advantage in the fourth to double-up the Lady Bulldogs and advance to Saturday’s championship.

Miriana Cervantes was the lone bright spot for the Lady Bulldogs, scoring a game-high 17 points.
