Lady Trojan Theresa Amador looks to have been fouled not once but twice on this play deep in the paint during Tuesday night’s game with the Victoria East Titans. The visitors had too much firepower and dealt the Beeville girls a 68-35 loss.

Way too many turnovers and way too many missed shots. That summed up the Lady Trojans’ misfortune against the visiting Victoria East Lady Titans on Tuesday night.

The Titans finished off the Beeville girls, 68-35. The loss leaves the Lady Trojans at 0-2 in district play.

“We are coming off a hard loss from last week. We are in a rut right now. We must remain together and pick one another up after this loss,” said head coach Katina Walker.

“It is tough when the whole team is struggling in a game.”

Victoria jumped out to a 10-4 lead in the opening minutes and were up by that same six points, 14-8, going into the second period. The Titans upped their defensive pressure and the Lady Trojans seemed to rush and were out of control in their effort to get back into the game. Missed shots and turnovers followed them the rest of the way.

The Titans held a 32-15 lead at the half and were never really challenged. The Beeville girls scored 11 points in the third period for their highest offensive output of the night, but the Titans hit for 16 to extend their lead to 48-26.

Victoria put the finishing touches on the Lady Trojans with 20 points over the final eight minutes while limiting the Beeville girls to nine points. It was a 68-35 Victoria victory.

Chelsea Contreras led the Lady Trojans in scoring with 14 points, several coming from the free throw line in the second half. Theresa Amador produced 10 points, mostly through her inside power game. J.J. Hernandez added eight and Victoria Elizalde finished with three.

The Lady Trojans faced the state’s sixth-ranked 4A girls team on Friday when they paid a visit to Floresville to meet the Jaguars. On Tuesday night, the Beeville girls will host the Port Lavaca Sandies. The first game of the evening will tip off at 5 p.m.
