“The Lady Trojans played very hard but the maturation and experience of Rockport proved to be an insurmountable obstacle for us at this stage in the development of a competitive girls basketball program,” said JHS head coach Chuck Youngblood.
The Lady Pirates jumped right into it by taking a 18-6 first quarter lead and then stretched that to a 38-13 lead by the time the halftime buzzer sounded.
The home team doubled up the Beeville girls in the third period by outscoring them 20-10. It was really all over by then; heading into the fourth quarter Beeville was down 58-23.
The Lady Trojans added eight more points while the R-F ladies hit for 13 in the final eight minutes to capture a 71-31 victory.
Rockport improved to 22-5 on the season and stands 4-1 in district play. The Lady Trojans hold a 2-3 district mark.
Alisa Patterson led the Beeville scoring with 10 points. Paige McKinney added five. Randi Maupin and Victoria Elizalde each hit for four points.
J.J. Hernandez recorded three and Alison Patterson made two. Theresa Amador added one point.
“Rockport simply dominated every aspect of the game and, as the coach, that is my responsibility. I must do a better job of preparation,” Youngblood said.
The Lady Trojans met the Moody Lady Trojans in Beeville on Friday night and will be at home on Tuesday evening when the Ray Lady Texans pay a visit.
