Goliad led 5-3 after the first period, as two of the Beeville points came from Cassi Cabazos. The second quarter was a little faster paced as the girls on both sides warmed up. The score at the half still had the Tigerettes in front by one, 12-11. Alexis Pelitire led the Beeville attack with four markers in the quarter.
The Tigerettes opened things up a little in the third period and took a 24-19 advantage. Alyssa Bates had four of Beeville’s points in the quarter.
The Lady Trojans played tough defense in the fourth and held the Tigerettes to just two points. The Beeville offense was not quite there, scoring just six points of their own to creep within one, 26-25.
“This was a different mix of girls from our two squads and they worked well together. Pelitire lead the team from the point while Bates pounded the inside on defense,” said coach Jason Hinds.
“We did fall one point short, but it was a good skills game for the girls.”
Pelitire led all Lady Trojan scorers with nine points. Bates followed with eight while Cassi Cabazos finished with six markers. Brittany Torralva had two points.
The Lady Trojans hosted Port Lavaca on Tuesday night and will travel to Gregory-Portland on Friday night to tangle with the Wildcats.
