With two games remaining, three teams are vying for the third and final spot in postseason play. Falls City has the top spot wrapped up at 6-0 and Port Aransas has clinched a playoff berth with four district wins through Tuesday night’s games. Pettus at 2-3, Yorktown at 2-3 and Woodsboro at 2-5 all still have a shot at the playoffs.
At Port “A” the Pettus girls fell behind early and had to play catch-up the rest of the night. The Lady Eagles took a 31-26 lead into the fourth quarter but could not hold it. The Lady Marlins struck back and earned the 38-35 win with a strong fourth quarter.
Jessica Stanley led the Pettus scoring with 10 points. Sarah Gill followed with seven. Paige Fox and Lindsay P. supplied six each. Tori Garza closed out the PHS scoring with four.
In the Woodsboro game, the Pettus girls fell behind by double digits at the half after a strong first period. It was a 40-29 ball game with Woodsboro out front going into the final eight minutes. Pettus fought hard but the comeback fell just short as the WHS ladies held on for a 47-42 victory.
“The ladies did an outstanding job of making comebacks in both games and never giving up. I am very pleased with the effort that our entire team put forth in both games,” said Pettus Lady Eagle head coach Darcy Siddon.
Stanley had 13 points and 10 rebounds against Woodsboro and Fox followed with 11 markers. Gill and Lindsay P. each contributed six points. Tori Garza produced four points and Hailee Schauer had two.
