BEEVILLE – A good start and finish did not quite overcome a couple of lackluster quarters for the JV Trojan basketball squad on Monday night. The visiting John Paul II Centurions held on for a close 45-40 victory.

The young Trojans led early, hitting for 12 first period points while holding the Centurions to just five. The visitors got their running and gunning game going in the second quarter and left the Trojans behind. It was 26-17 at the half with the visitors owning the nine-point advantage.

The Trojans hit for nine points in the third quarter, but the JP II boys added 15 markers to lengthen their lead to 15, 41-26.

The Beeville boys had their best quarter of the game in the fourth. The defense created turnovers and the hot-shooting Centurions cooled off a bit. The Trojans closed the gap by 10 points but ran out of time. The final period had the JV Trojans scoring 14 points while holding the visitors to a mere four.

The Trojans had a balanced scoring attack with Gabriel Cardenas leading the way with 10 points. Nick Gonzales added eight markers while Steve Barrera hit for seven tallies. Jacob Castro and Jacoby Veliz each contributed six points, and AJ Gomez recorded three.

The JV boys will be back on the court on Tuesday night when they visit Sinton.
