The Beeville girls came out hot offensively and played well on the defensive end too, despite allowing 17 points for the Sandies. The Lady Trojans controlled the ball, minimized turnovers and hit for 18 points of their own in the first period to lead by one, 18-17, going into the second stanza.
That’s when things started to go south for the Beeville girls.
The Sandies got hot and burned the nets for 20 second period points while holding the Lady Trojans to 10 markers. Too many Beeville turnovers gave the Sandies too many chances. It was 37-28 and still a game at the half, but the Calhoun girls had the momentum.
The visitors were still burning white hot in the third quarter as the Sandies poured in 26 points to pull away. The Beeville offense fell apart, scoring only seven to fall way behind, 63-35.
The Sandies slowed their pace and added 10 fourth quarter points, but the Lady Trojans did not mount any kind of comeback with only four points. Calhoun walked off the A.C. Jones floor with a dominating 73-39 victory.
“We play good in spurts, but inexperience usually gets the best of us,” said Lady Trojan head coach Lisa Hess.
Ciara Garcia led the Beeville scoring with 17 points. Audrey Carranco followed with 13 markers. Margaret Downing hit for three points as did Mari Gonzales. Marissa Rodriguez added two and Angelika Benavides made one free throw.
The Lady Trojans were in Calallen on Tuesday night to tangle with the Ladycats and will be at home on Friday evening when the Tuloso-Midway Cherokees pay a visit to Beeville.
