Last night the 8th grade boys A team traveled down the street to take on the mini-mustangs of Natalia. The boys came out a bit slow and out of sync, but their defense kept them in the game and had a 12-2 lead after the first quarter. After that, the Pirates woke up, righted the ship and the route was on. The Pirates led 32-6 at halftime and the rest of the game was history. The final score was 54-15. The Pirates have outscored their last 2 opponents by 90 points!!!!
The team from Natalia came calling before Christmas and unfortunately, they only had enough to form one team. I would have loved to have a B team game, but it was fun to sit on the bench and watch the 8th grade A team beat their rivals in blue. The ladies shut the Mustangs out in the first half and took an 8 to 0 lead to the half. Their second quarter didn't gain many points, but they took some good shots. In the third quarter, we gave four of the B team opportunity to get in the game and they held their own. In the fourth quarter, we ran two beautiful inbounds plays for 5 points. The first play gave two points to Cadee Martinez as she cut to the basket. The second play we gave it to Marissa for a three-point shot which she swished. This shot broke the spirit of the ladies in blue. We scored 11 points in the fourth quarter which was the highest quarter total for the year. The horn sounded and Lytle had 24 and Natalia 10. We have taken care of our home court winning both games. Our record stands at 2 and 1. Next week we finish the 2018 part of the season with a game in Dilley.
Last Friday, the freshmen boys’ basketball team traveled to compete against the TMI Panthers. The boys started slow and struggled both offensively and defensively throughout the night. Unfortunately, the boys could not gain a lead and lost. We look to redeem ourselves tomorrow night, Tuesday December 11th, as the Pirates host the Pearsall Mavericks. Overall Record: 7-2 Thank you all for your continued support.
This past Friday your Pirates traveled to TMI HS to face the Panthers for the second time this season. The game started out rough for the pirates with foul trouble and inconsistency on the offensive end. Our defense kept us in the first half but trailed 22-20 at the end of the second quarter. The second half, however, was a completely different story. The Pirates woke up and put on it TMI the rest of the game by scoring 48 points in the second half to TMI's 12 points. The Pirates won 67-34 over TMI.
The girls picked up a win on Friday against Brooks Academy with everyone getting valuable minutes. Noelia Medina scored a season-high 18 points and Elaine Keith shot the ball well scoring 8. We played as a team by sharing the ball and talking on defense. We are improving every game and you can see the confidence in the girls now. Go Pirates!!!!
