“We didn’t play well at all. We were unable to score against their zone, and we didn’t get many transition opportunities to make the game easier on ourselves,” said JV coach Michael Hernandez.
The Trojans fell behind early and had trouble putting the ball through the nets. Neither team scored well in the first period, but the Calallen boys emerged with a slim 6-4 lead.
The Wildcats got their shooting eye back in the second period and recorded 12 points to take a 18-8 lead at the half.
“In the last two minutes of the first half, we missed four straight shots that were either lay-ups or point-blank shots, which would have put us down by two at the half,” Hernandez said.
The pace quickened in the third, but the Wildcats again had the upper hand and stretched their command to a 27-15 advantage.
The young Wildcats struck for 14 points in the final minutes while holding the Trojans to just six to dominate the Beeville boys in the 41-21 victory.
Robert Torres finished with eight points for the Trojans. Tommy Dominguez furnished five, and Jonathan Huser and Dylan Castillo each contributed four in the loss.
