NORTH RICHLAND HILLS — Before Tuesday’s game, Richland coach Richard Bacon thought that the longer Keller Fossil Ridge standout Ryan Parker was a factor, the tougher it would be for Bacon’s team to win.He hit the nail on the head. Parker scored 27 points — including eight straight points in a first-half run then four 3-pointers in the third quarter — to boost the Panthers to a 60-47 road victory and their fifth consecutive District 4-5A win.“He’s a special player,” Fossil Ridge coach Zack Myers said of Parker. “He’s capable of going off like that. He’s a guy that just changes a game.”After Richland (13-7, 4-2) scored the opening basket, Fossil Ridge (14-6, 5-1) went on a 16-2 run, sparked by Parker. Six straight points from Zach Graves and Jesse Avila helped pull Richland within 21-14 at halftime. Richland played much of the first half without 6-foot-9 center Tim Priller, one of the area’s top scorers, as he picked up three fouls by early in the second quarter. He ended up with six points.Parker’s three-point splurge in the third pushed Fossil Ridge ahead 42-29, matching the Panthers’ largest lead of the game.Graves led Richland with 17 points, including 11 in the fourth quarter, but the Rebels couldn’t get closer than seven the rest of the way.
