11-14-2022 Varsity Boys Basketball Season Opener vs Eagle Pass Winn
It's that time of year, basketball season is upon us. This past Saturday, November 12, 2022, the Pirates took on Eagle Pass Winn and won 82-53. Thank you to the Pirate Community for coming out to Saturday’s season opener. It was a great showing by the community to support the boys to start off the 22-23 basketball season.
Our fast-paced style of defense and offense was too much for Eagle Pass Winn to handle from tip off. The Pirates played a ferocious style of defense, pressing throughout the game that tired out the Mavericks. The defensive pressure led to 28 deflections and 21 steals. Senior Eli Vega, also known as the Lytle Manu Ginobili, had 8 of the 21 steals. The kid was all over the court causing chaos to the Mavericks offensive game. Senior Malakai Garza had 4 steals, 3 deflections and pressured the Maverick Point Guard all game long. Offensively, Seniors Jordan Balderaz had 22 points, 8 rebounds and Senior Jaelen Guevara had 22 points and 9 rebounds. It was a good win and a great start to the 22-23 season. The Pirates will play this coming Friday, November 18, 2022, here in Lytle vs Karnes City at 6:30 pm. We would love to see you there!
Special Shoutout to our High School staff that made it out this Saturday: Mr. Mora, Mr. Sanchez, Mrs. Quinonez, Ms. Kim, and Mrs. Scotello. Thank You on behalf of our boys!
