Leonard boys, Rains girls reach Leonard finals

HIGH SCHOOL BASKETBALL ROUNDUP

LEONARD —   The Leonard Tigers and Rains Ladycats rallied from early deficits to reach tonight’s championship games with victories in Friday’s semifinals of the 52nd Annual Leonard Holiday Basketball Tournament.

  Leonard battled back from a 14-point deficit in the first half and an 11-point disadvantage in the third quarter to overtake Bonham 70-59 in a boys semifinal.

  “Everything went bad in the first quarter and our kids just hung in there and kept grinding,” said Leonard coach Jeff Smith.

  Tyler “Turbo” Turner topped the Tigers in their semifinal with 17 points, while Storm Taylor popped in 16, Blake Hicks added 12 and Matthew Wilson fired in 11.

  Leonard, which outscored Bonham 31-9 in the fourth quarter, will meet District 12-2A rival Farmersville in the 8:20 p.m. championship game after the Fightin’ Farmers beat No. 21 state-ranked Whitesboro 60-52 in the other semifinal. J’Tyus Clark poured in 37 points to lead the Farmers.

Farmersville beat Leonard 66-55 in district play last week.

  Klara Bradshaw, Rains’ 6-6 senior, led the Lady Wildcats into the girls championship finals for the fourth time in five years with a 59-49 semifinal victory over host Leonard. Bradshaw fired in 23 points, pulled down 12 rebounds and had two assists, eight blocked shots and four steals.

  Molly Carista and Cortney Anderson both fired in 10 points for Rains, which rallied from a 10-2 deficit in the first quarter.

  Kimmy Blackburn tossed in 18 points and Kacie McCarley added 14 for host Leonard.

  Rains will face East Texas neighbor Alba-Golden in the 7 p.m. championship game after the Lady Panthers dispatched Cooper 38-28 in the semifinals. Caitlin Lennon and Macie Arrington both fired in 10 points to lead Alba-Golden.
