(KETK) — It has been rainy and icy in East Texas, and there were a number of high school girls basketball playoff games that had to be rescheduled due to road conditions.

But we still had plenty of action on night one, including the Chapel Hill Lady Bulldogs coming up short against Liberty-Eylau, 67-50.

The Gilmer Lady Buckeyes took care of business in Winona, beating Kilgore 69-18, and will face the winner of Farmersville and Athens in the 2nd round.

Coach Jermaine Lewis and the Gladewater Lady Bears won a tough contest 45-41 against Elysian Fields at Lobo Coliseum in Longview. They will face Mount Vernon in the area round.

And Sabine outlasted Harleton down the stretch in Hallsville 58-53, and will face DeKalb next week.
