BEEVILLE — It has been tough for the Trojans to score of late. The Beeville varsity lost to the Victoria East Titans on Friday night, 56-34, and on Tuesday, the Beeville boys dropped a 53-20 tilt to the visiting Port Lavaca Sandcrabs.

In Friday’s game, the Trojans managed to hit for just nine first half points as the Titans took control of the contest and led 29-9 at the half.

The Trojans had their best effort of the night in the third period, scoring 18 markers while holding the Titans in check with just seven points. The game was a 36-27 contest and the Trojans still had a shot.

The Titans reverted to some strong defense and the Beeville shooting touch disappeared in the fourth quarter. The Titans recorded 20 points in the last stanza to earn the win for the home team.

“We started out really slow, we could not get a shot to go down and we were plagued by turnovers again. We did come out in the third quarter and made a run at them, but we ran out of gas late,” said Trojan head coach Mike Luce.

“The competition is too good in our district to come out flat and then try to play catch-up.”

Brent Reyna and Cameron Kremers each scored 11 points for the Trojans.

In Tuesday night’s contest in Beeville, the shooting woes returned. The hosts allowed the Sandcrabs 20 first quarter points while hitting for just seven markers.

It did not get any better. The visitors held a 24-13 lead at the half, and it was a 41-17 contest heading into the final period. The Trojans could muster just three fourth quarter points while the Sandcrabs used the clock and added 12 tallies. It was no contest as the PL boys went back home with an easy victory.

Tyler Stewart led the Beeville scoring with six points on the night.

The Trojans were in Calallen on Friday night to play the Wildcats. On Tuesday evening, the Beeville boys will be back in town for a date with the visiting Tuloso-Midway Warriors.
