Lady Pirates have third seed in district playoffs

 

It was a four point game, 33-37 until the last five minutes before the Lady Pirates lost to Moulton 42-57 in their last district game of the season.
 
 Nordheim coach Randy Castillo said, “We had a great three quarters. In the fourth we had too many bad possessions of not taking care of the ball, not boxing out, and poor shot selection that led to our defeat.”
 
The Lady Pirates finished third in district and will face runner up district 32 Tilden for playoff round in Beeville, Feb. 10 at 6 p.m.

Wildcats secure playoff round

 

The Yorktown Wildcats came to the reality that district playoffs may be something of the past after facing another loss  against the Three Rivers Bulldogs with a score of 59-71.
 
The Wildcats played at home Feb. 4 without Dos Torres who is known more for his defensive rebounds. However, it may have made little difference. Three Rivers simply out-hustled and outplayed the Wildcats offense. 
 
Steven Herrera went four for six in free throws and the team, overall, hit half of their free throw shots. The shooting from outside seems to be hurting the Wildcats but there was and overall improvement with 29 percent making the basket. Offensive rebounding of five with 72 field goal attempts is still a weakness that Yorktown coach Scott DeMarco is still trying to overcome.

Lady Gobblers 3rd in district, host La Grange tonight

 

The Lady Gobblers came from behind to defeat the Lady Apaches Jan. 31 in Gonzales, 47–38. The team is third in district.
 
“The first half we struggled. The shots looked good but they were not going in the basket. The defense kept us in the game,” said girls coach Terrance Fryer.
 
Once the Lady Gobblers settled down and adjusted their tempo it was a different second half.
 
“The shooting had the same look as the first but they just started going in the basket,” Fryer said.
 
The Lady Gobblers won the Jan. 28 game against the Tigerettes at Smithville, 50–33. The Lady Gobblers played their last home game Feb. 4 against La Grange.

Coaches protest game in stand still for one minute 48 seconds

 

It was a game that may be talked about for years to come as the boy’s basketball coaches from Nordheim and Austwell-Tivoli stood silently for one minute 48 seconds to run out the clock. 
 
Nordheim, with only six players, played their first district game against the Austwell-Tivoli Redfish on Jan. 31 at home. It was the first time that all members of the team were eligible due to grades.
 
Both teams came out and played hard ending the first period with Nordheim behind 10-12.
 
In the second period the Pirates made plenty attempts to score but they were no where near the basket. The Redfish outscored the Pirates 13-20.

Nordheim still heading to playoff

 

It was not the Lady Pirates night at their homecoming game against Austwell Tivoli on Jan. 31. Alyssa Leister only scored 10 points with most of her shots nowhere near the basket.
 
“I don’t know what went wrong,” Leister said. “I really wanted us to do good since this is my last game at home.”
 
Halfway into the first period there was a lot of tension on the court. Nordheim coach Randy Castillo had the Lady Pirates play a more controlled game slowing down the pace. At the end of the first Nordheim was down by two points, 11-13.
