A second period defensive stand provided the margin of victory for the Beevoille girls. The two teams were knotted at 8-8 after the first quarter. The Lady Trojans added seven points in the second quarter and made enough stops to keep the Calallen squad at just four markers for the period. Beeville led 15-12 at the half.
The Beeville lead grew to five by the end of the third quarter as the visitors scored 12 points and the Calallen girls added 10 tallies. The scoring was reversed in the final period, with Calallen edging closer with 12 points and the Lady Trojans netting 10 to maintain a three-point advantage.
“It was nice to see the team keep their composure and focus throughout the entire game. Tiffany Vargas was able to lead the offense and the point position with dishing out assists and good defensive pressure,” Barrera said.
Amanda Garza led the Beeville girls in scoring with 12 points. Mikaela Fernandez followed with nine. Vargas and Samantha Salazar each contributed seven and Alyssa Silva added two.
The Beeville defense played an important part in the victory, according to the coach.
“Silva provided constant pressure on the Calallen guards which led to fast breaking opportunities for us. Salazar and Fernandez ran the floor well during transition offense and defense,” Barrera said.
The Lady Trojans were at home last night (Friday) against the Tuloso-Midway Cherokees and will host Gregory-Portland on Tuesday night.
