Sabine to round three!

At Lindale Tuesday night against Mount Vernon


Throughout the history of its basketball program, Sabine High School has had a few glorious moments.

Are we building to another?

The Sabine Cardinals, who have played strong for most of the season (including an early-season tournament against mostly state-ranked teams), are moving on to round three of the University Interscholastic League's Class 3A playoffs.

The Cardinals, coached by Colby Carr, will face 12th-ranked Mount Vernon on Tuesday night at Lindale High School, a 6:30 p.m. start for the regional quarterfinal contest.

Sabine edged Daingerfield, 57-54, on Friday night in a second-round game in Gladewater.

Eylan Goodwin had a massive showing, netting 29 points and had nine rebounds. Will Shawn had eight points and also had eight rebounds, two assists and two blocked shots.

Tray Oliver had seven points and five rebounds; Nate Willis had seven points and four rebounds; T Taylor scored six, and had two rebounds, and also took two charges; his brother Scottie Taylor played solid defense, as did Jackson Lutz, Glenn George, and Braden Ford.

Daingerfield elected to try and guard Goodwyn one-on-one. Mistake. Goodwyn scored with five seconds left on a drive to the basket. He was fould and hit the free throw, which ultimately gave Sabine the win.

Shawn had a big play late, a blocked shot that allowed Sabine to keep the game tied before Goodwyn's heroics.
