No. 17 Lingleville had an upset on its mind in Glen Rose Tuesday as the Cardinals outhustled No. 2 Graford denying the Jackrabbits second opportunities and coming from behind to force overtime before slipping 56-51.
The Cardinals (19-7) outrebounded Graford (23-2) on defense in the Class A regional semifinal and forced numerous turnovers, but fouls plagued Lingleville throughout the game. Graford was tagged with only nine whistles the entire contest and the Rabbits’ accuracy at the line made the difference in the contest.
The Cardinals forced overtime when they came from five points down to tie the game at 45-45, but the Rabbits seized the momentum as the fouls continued to pile up and went on a 7-0 run to take command.
