When the teams from Stockdale and Nixon-Smiley get together, one thing is for certain -- there is more at stake than just a win or a loss. For these schools, it’s also about pride, and perhaps a bit of boasting for the school that comes out on top. After the boys and girls varsity basketball teams mixed it up Jan. 25, it is Stockdale that currently holds all the bragging rights.

The Lady Brahmas and Lady Mustangs took the floor first, and both teams started the game a little flat. Shots fell off their marks, though both teams showed good hustle and solid defensive efforts. By the time the first period ended, it was the visiting team from Nixon-Smiley holding a slight 6-5 advantage.

In the second stanza, though, both teams settled into the game and made good adjustments. The Lady Mustangs scored 9 points during the eight-minute period, but struggled to contain the Lady Brahmas, as Stockdale nearly tripled its first-period scoring effort by adding 14 points to the board. The buzzer sounded the end of the half, and the Lady Brahmas took a 19-15 lead into the locker room.

The increased scoring trend continued for the Lady Brahmas in the second half, as Stockdale lit up the board for 22 points, while holding the Lady Mustangs to just 5.

As the teams headed into the final period of play, the Lady Brahmas held a comfortable 41-20 lead over the visiting Lady Mustangs. And despite the lead, Stockdale continued to pressure Nixon-Smiley at both ends of the floor, adding another 15 points to the board, while holding the Lady Mustangs to 8 points in the period. As the final buzzer sounded, it was Stockdale that celebrated a 56-28 victory.

Once the celebration died down, the girls moved off the floor and made way for the guys. Both the Brahmas and Mustangs are capable of scoring big points, and fans knew they were about to see a great game.

The contest was fast-paced from its onset, and while both teams battled well throughout the first eight minutes, it was Stockdale who led the way with 20 points. Nixon-Smiley managed just 8 points in the period, but the game was anything but over.

The evenness of the two teams came through in the second period, as control and momentum went back and forth. When time expired, it was Nixon-Smiley holding a 14-13 scoring edge in the period, but it was Stockdale leading the game, 33-22.

Following halftime, the third period unfolded in much the same way the second had. Things fell evenly for each team, and the Mustangs once again outscored the Brahmas 14-13, and the Stockdale lead was down to 10.

With just eight minutes remaining in the game, the Brahmas and Mustangs continued their classic duel. The Mustangs began to mount a comeback in the closing minutes of the game, and outscored the Brahmas by 5 in the period, but couldn’t close the deal in the end. As time expired, it was Stockdale who held on for the 57-52 win.
