The venues were different as the Hawks travelled to Waxahachie and the Lady Hawks hosted Waxahachie in District 15-4A, but the results were the same.

Red Oak came up on the short end of the scoreboard in both contests.

In Waxahachie, the Hawks had a very difficult time overcoming the Indians and four technical foul calls.

In the 72-62 Hachie victory, the Indians had the benefit of Detrick Slaughter going to the foul line to hit all eight charity tosses given for the technical fouls. To add more injury Slaughter was 11 for 11 from the line for the game.

Red Oak did close to within five points with 34 seconds to play before two more technical fouls were called to put Slaughter at the line.

Waxahachie, now 2-0 in district play, pulled off the 10 point victory  to give Red Oak a 0-1 district record.

The Hawks will play in the West Mesquite Tournament starting tomorrow.
