8th Grade Boys:
Tonight the boys split wins with Hondo; the B team dominated the Owls with a 39 to 13 victory. Jose Gallegos lead the charge with 17 points followed by Adan Ayala with 9. The A team fought off an 8 point halftime deficit to take the lead going into the 4th quarter, but the Pirates were not able to maintain losing 33-27. Joel Guerrero lead the team with 7 points followed by Jacob I. Morales with 6. I am proud of the fight in these young men.

7th Grade Girls
Last night the 7th grade girls traveled to Hondo. Both teams were outscored by the Owls. The B team dominated the offensive rebounding. I think they probably outrebounded Hondo at least 4 to 1. However, you get no points for an offensive rebound. If gravity would have worked in our favor the B team would have won. Instead Hondo had 13 and Lytle 12 when the last buzzer sounded. Jerelynn Kent was the leading scorer with six points including a nice 17 foot bank shot. MariaCruz Reyes scored 4 points and Emily Garcia had two points on a nice rebound put back.
In the A game we cut the lead to 8 in the last 30 seconds and had 4 free throw attempts to cut the lead but we missed all 4. We did accomplish our goals for the game by making a free throw and scoring more than we did last week. Reflecting on the game on the ride home for a 7th grade A game the score was as good as some high school games. Hondo ended up winning 45-37 but we had a chance to win in the fourth quarter. The A team was led in scoring by Jeanae Harden with 13 points. Destinae Darby had 10 points, Abby Garcia and Angelik Martinez added 2 and Autumn Frias added one. We have much to work on as our zone defense was poor as well as our individual closeouts on our man defense. We made a free throw this week but we ended up 6 for 26. Basketball is a simple game. Score your layups and free throws and you will win more than you lose. Next week Fredricksburg comes to town and the A team plays in a tournament in Devine on Saturday. If you get a chance to see them you won’t be disappointed.
