BEEVILLE — The Kingsville Lady Brahmas had trouble finding the nets at the Moreno Middle School gymnasiums on Thursday night last week. The visitors scored 15 points, combined, in the three games played.

The eighth-grade B game was not played.

In the 7B contest, the young Lady Trojans posted a 24-6 victory over the Lady Brahmas.

“We learned a great deal from this game. We had a chance to slow the game down and work on executing our plays,” said coach Sonia Cano.

Alyssa Gonzales led the Beeville girls in scoring with seven points, one more than their opponents. Virginia Delgado added four markers, while Cynthia Cisneros made three. Julissa Castillo and Debbie Lopez each had two.

In the 8A match, the local girls must have put a lid on Kingsville’s basket. The final was a 36-2 drubbing.

The Lady Trojans mixed up their defenses to some degree. They played a tight man-to-man scheme in the first half and went zone in the second half with just as much effectiveness.

Brianna Bunton led the Lady Trojans in scoring with nine points. Maricella Gonzales followed with eight, while Alyssa Silva added six. Ana Casas hit for four points. Cierra Gonzales, Michaela Chavarria, Alyssa Medina and Jasmine Lopez contributed two apiece. Makayla Martinez added one free throw.

“The young Lady Trojans did a good job on returning from the Christmas break against Kingsville. They did a good job of communicating, and I was really proud of the way they played together,” said coach Linda Luna.

In the 7A game, the MMS girls wound up on the right side of a 32-7 scoreboard.

“The girls jumped right out there and put pressure on Kingsville and scored most of their points in the first half,” said coach Michelle Mertz.

Kailey Perez led the Beeville attack with 11 points. Raeann Flores followed with nine. August Evans hit for eight points from her post position.

“Evans really stepped up in this game, putting her post moves to work under the basket,” said Mertz.

Kaitlyn Pelitire and Aaliyah Ruiz had two points each. Defensively, coach Mertz highlighted the play of Ruiz, Maddie Rodriguez and Flores.

The MMS girls traveled to Tuloso-Midway on Thursday evening. The young Lady Trojans will host Flour Bluff on Jan. 24 in their last game of the season.
