BURNET – Burnet center Clayton Baumgartner scored 33 of his team’s 49 points Tuesday night, allowing the Bulldogs (11-11, 2-0) to take over first place in District 8-3A by defeating Llano.
The final score was 49-38.
Llano (14-6, 1-1) fell into a second place tie with Liberty Hill (1-1) and Gatesville (1-1). LH downed Lampasas 49-45 and Gatesville bopped Brownwood 60-53.
The Yellow Jackets fell behind 16-4 after one quarter but outscored the home team Bulldogs the rest of the way.
"We can’t afford a slow start on the road against a district favorite,” head coach Aidan Callahan said after the game.
Llano seniors Taylor Sorensen (six points) and Eli Tiffin (eight) sparked a fourth quarter rally that gave the Yellow Jackets a chance, but every time Llano krept close Baumgartner would either throw down a spectacular dunk or swish a three-pointer from the corner.
Jai Bhakta had seven points for Llano and eight Yellow Jackets scored points in the game, none in double figures.
