Highland, Roscoe girls play for lead in 13-A

January 14, 2014

The Highland and Roscoe girls basketball teams have already put some distance between themselves and the rest of the teams who play in District 13-A, Division II by starting 3-0. All of the other four teams have at least two defeats. Tonight, the 13-A co-leaders meet in Highland at 6:30 p.m. to decide the outright leader.
Highland has played two actual district games, but got a forfeit victory over Loraine, which decided to cancel its season, this past Friday. Roscoe defeated Ira, 45-39, in its last game.
Highland, which has a 17-2 overall record, is ranked No. 2 in Class 1A, Division II by the Texas Association of Basketball Coaches this week, while Roscoe (11-9 overall) is unranked. High-land did play Friday, beat-ing the Abilene Hawks — a home school team — by a score of 66-13. Roscoe got 19 points from Sam Ortega and 12 from Eva Aguayo in its win over Ira, which was easier than the score suggests. Roscoe led 23-1o at halftime and 33-17 after three periods until Ira (1-2) outscored Roscoe 22-12 in the fourth quarter.
The Highland boys are off to a 1-0 start after beating Loraine 58-21. They face a Roscoe team that lost 62-29 to Ira in its district opener. Highland shares the early 13-A lead with Hermleigh and Ira. The boys game will tip off about 8 p.m.
In 14-A, D-II, Blackwell’s teams go to Veribest today starting with the girls game at 6:30 p.m. The boys are 3-2 and the girls 1-6 after losing to Water Valley on Friday. The girls fell 53-30 despite 10 points by Hailey Bennett, while the boys lost 86-44 to the first-place Wildcats. Matt Lowry led Blackwell with 16 points.
