The Floresville Tigers split their two district games last week as they have a district record of 4 wins and 3 losses going into the final week of action.
The Tigers traveled to Victoria on Saturday evening and fell to district co-leader Victoria East by the score of 59-56 in overtime. After the Tigers tied the score with just over two minutes remaining in regulation play, the Titans outscored the Tigers 4-1 in the overtime period for the victory.
The first quarter found both teams playing good, aggressive basketball. The Titans led after one period by three points at 15-12. East outscored the Tigers 16-11 in the second quarter to take a 31-23 halftime advantage.
The Tigers came out strong in the third quarter and scored 13 straight points to take a 34-31 lead with four minutes left in the period. East came back in the final minutes of the quarter to hold a 44-41 lead to begin the last period. The Tigers played a good fourth quarter and outscored the Titans 14-12 in the period. A 3-point shot by Estevan Mendiola with 2:12 left tied the score at 55-55 as neither team could score again in regulation. East prevailed with a big 3-point shot in the overtime period, although the Tigers had their chances for the victory.
The Tigers played a good game and had four players scoring in double figures in the loss. Mendiola led the team with 17 points, while Jacob Flores followed with 14, Colton Wallace had 12, and Josh Barnard scored 10; Charlie Albert also scored 3 points in the game. Mendiola hit three 3-point baskets, while Flores had 2 and Barnard, 1.
On Tuesday evening, the Tigers completely dominated the Beeville Trojans 77-51 in a district game played in Beeville.
The Tigers came out strong from the beginning as they took a 20-10 lead after one quarter. By halftime, the Tigers had increased that lead to 48-23, and after three quarters, the Tigers held a 30-point advantage at 62-32.
Every Tiger team member scored in the contest as Albert led the way with 15 points, followed by Rob Regalado and Flores, who each scored 8 points. Scoring 7 points in the contest were Mendiola, Barnard, Daniel Bourland, and Dominque DeWalt, while Wallace and Bobby Lusk each had 6 points. Richie Asebedo scored 4 and Amos Garcia added 2 points. Albert made three 3-pointers and Regalado made 2. Mendiola, Flores, DeWalt, and Lusk each made one 3-point shot.
The final two district games of the season will be played this week. The Tigers will play their final home game of the season this Friday, Feb. 11, against the Gregory-Portland Wildcats. On Tuesday, Feb. 15, the Tigers will once again travel to Victoria to face the Victoria West Warriors.
