BURLESON — The Burleson Elks fell to the state-ranked North Crowley Panthers, who hit eight 3-pointers and outscored the Elks 20-6 in the third period of a District 3-5A matchup at Burleson High School on Tuesday night, en route to a 75-38 loss.

Burleson shot just 12-of-35 from the floor for 34 percent on the night and turned the ball over 26 times.

The Panthers were 28-of-61 from the field for 46 percent.

Elks head coach Ted Tomchesson said the turnover differential was one of main things that went wrong in the loss.

“They converted, I think, on every one,” Tomchesson said. “When you look at it, I don’t think they got much else besides 3s when we were stacking our zone, but they shoot with a lot of confidence when they’re up by 20.”

North Crowley stretched a 40-21 halftime lead to a 60-26 advantage in the third quarter.

Jon Rutkowski led Burleson with 11 points and Caleb Cantrell pitched in 10 points.

Ryan Marsh had five points, Rico Legget netted four, Jacob Rodgers put in three, the duo of Joel Rodgers and Cameron Anderson each had two and Mitchell Lott contributed a point.
