PORT LAVACA — The junior varsity Trojan basketball squad stayed close to the Sandcrabs through three quarters, but the home team finished strong and captured a 54-36 win over the Trojan JV boys on Friday night.

The Sandcrabs led by two points, 12-10, after one period and held on for a 19-15 advantage at the half. The ’Crabs kept the pressure on and took a 34-26 lead into the final seven minutes.

“We even took a two- point lead early in the fourth quarter at 36-34; however, we went cold down the stretch and our execution was not where it should have been. We’ll look to rebound and do better Tuesday against Callallen,” said JV coach Michael Hernandez.

That cold stretch was the opening the Sandcrabs needed as they scored the game’s final 20 points to capture the win 54-36.

Tommy Dominguez led the Beeville scoring with 19 points, including four long-range jumpers for treys. Josh Salazar added six points.

The Trojans played host to Calallen on Tuesday night and will be back on the road on Friday when they travel to Tuloso-Midway to tangle with the Warriors.
