The Bushland Falcons made their first-ever appearance at the boys state tournament but it didn't last as long as the Falcons had hoped. Bushland lost to 2nd-ranked Tatum in the 2A semifinals 58-41 on Friday. After a close first quarter in which Tatum led 16-12, the Falcons struggled in the second period, managing just 8 points while the Eagles poured in 19 to take a 35-20 lead at halftime and Bushland never was able to get back into the game after that.
The Falcons were led by Teagan Shelton and Taylor Cornelius with 11 points each. Bayler Andrews added 8 as the Falcons finish their historic season 27-9. Tatum runs its record to 30-4 and will play Ponder for the 2A title tomorrow.
