The 8B team had troubles with the young Ladycats’ second half press and fell to the Calallen girls, 41-18.
Ashley Olivares led the Beeville girls in the first half with eight points while Gabby Munoz hit for two points in the second quarter.
In the 7B game, the Lady Trojans dominated right from the opening tip in the 30-14 victory.
“We played a great game against Calallen,” said coach Lily Garcia.
Angel Frias led the way with 12 points. Gabby Hyturria followed with eight tallies. Deziree Mendez had six while Sierra Jefferson added four in the win.
The 8A team won a 29-23 contest that improved their season record to 7-3 and they stand 2-0 in district play.
“The girls out-hustled the Wildcats every quarter to keep a 5- to 6-point lead in every quarter. The girls had to work together on offense and defense to keep the lead the entire game,” said coach Nidia Barrera.
“Every point was a battle and for a good part of the game it was basket to basket with both teams scoring without any stops.”
Ciara Garcia led the Beeville scoring attack with 10 points. Anika Barbosa added eight while Sofia Galindo hit for six. Briana Gobel closed out the scoring with five markers.
“I am very proud of the girls and can see improvement in them every day. They have also been working hard at practice and are ready to play Kingsville this Thursday here at home,” Barrera said.
In the 7A contest, the Lady Trojans triumphed 36-20 over Calallen. The win improved the MMS team record to 8-2 on the year and 2-0 in district.
“I was very proud of the way we moved the ball on the offense. The girls did a good job of getting open and taking nice shots,” said coach Linda Luna.
The Lady Trojans were without a couple of their post players and had to shuffle a few positions. The girls responded well, according to Luna, and played good team ball.
Margaret Downing led the scoring with 12 points with her inside game. Audrey Carranco hit for 10 points while Tiffany Vargas had six.
Jamison Martinez and Amanda Garza both contributed four points.
The MMS girls will host Kingsville tomorrow (Thursday) at 5 p.m. and will be at home next Thursday evening to welcome the Gregory-Portland girls.
