The Ellison Eagles upped their district record to 2-0 after a 61-46 home win over Temple on Friday.

For Ellison (10-4), Fred Jackson and Knigel Key each scored a game-high 17 points.

Temple (0-2, 6-7) was led in scoring by Logan Hicks with 14.

Temple led 23-18 at halftime but Ellison responded with a 20-7 edge in the third quarter.

“We started off slow tonight,” said Ellison head coach Alberto Jones Jr.

“They came out with more intensity than us. Then we played with a lot more energy in the third quarter. Knigel Key played very well for us in that third quarter. I thought Temple fought hard the entire game.”

COPPERAS COVE 61 BELTON 47: At Belton, Copperas Cove junior Rashard Odomes scored a game-high 33 points as the Bulldawgs earned their first district victory of the season.

After taking a six-point advantage, 32-26, into halftime, Copperas Cove outscored the Tigers 16-10 in the third quarter and 13-11 in the fourth quarter.

Montre’ Williams complemented Odomes’ performance by adding seven points, while teammates Johnathan Brown and Devante Robinson each finished with six points.

WACO MIDWAY 65, KILLEEN 59: At Waco, Dadrien Moore led Killeen with 20 points, but Midway scored 24 in the fourth quarter to down the Kangaroos.

Killeen (12-4, 1-1 District 8-5A) had a six-point halftime lead, but Midway closed out the game with a 24-14 fourth quarter edge.

Brian Long, a Texas-Pan American signee, added 14 points for Killeen while Arkansas-Fort Smith signee Melvin Anthony chipped in 10.

The Roos travel to North Texas for the Fort Worth Coca-Cola Classic, beginning Thursday, and resume district play Jan. 3 when they host Belton.

2A-No. 22 SALADO 75, ROSEBUD-LOTT 51: At Salado, Kyle Heiner scored a game-high 19 points, while teammates Dalton Hankamer and Preston Rosebrock added 17 and 12 points, respectively, as the Eagles earned a lopsided victory.

Salado jumped out to a 20-8 advantage by the end of the first quarter and never looked back, outscoring the Cougars 28-14 in the third quarter to practically secure the victory.

The win keeps the Eagles’ District 22-2A record unblemished at 2-0, while improving their overall record to 16-3.

GATESVILLE 83, WEST 80, OT: At West, Seth Martin hit a 3-pointer from just inside halfcourt to give Gatesville another narrow victory.

Martin, who hit a game-winning 3-pointer at the Hamilton tournament, finished with a game-high 35 points, including six 3-pointers, in the win.

On Tuesday, Martin tallied 26 points in a 59-58 overtime victory against Robinson.

The Hornets (7-5) are idle until opening play at their home tournament Dec. 27.

1A-DiV. 2 No. 18 LOMETA 69, JONESBORO 39: At Lometa, the Hornets used a dominating second-quarter performance to build a big lead before coasting to a lopsided victory in their district opener.

After building an immediate 12-2 lead, Lometa saw its advantage dwindle to just two points before going into the second quarter ahead by four points, 14-10.

Then, the Hornets took complete control, outscoring the Eagles 20-6 in the period to build the base of a blowout win.

Lometa senior Eric Nichols scored a game-high 19 points, while Pedro De Luna added 15 points.
