VICTORIA -- In a highly anticipated District 30-4A matchup, the Floresville Jaguar basketball team traveled to Victoria to take on the Lady Titans of Victoria East. The Jags started well, but eventually fell by the score of 82-63, giving the Lady Titans sole ownership of the district’s top spot.

Senior guard Destiny Amaro dropped in the first 2 points of the game last Tuesday in Victoria, and fellow senior guard Brittany Aikens followed it up with a deuce of her own. East came right back in the game, though, and soon had the game tied at 4-all. The Lady Titans took a 1-point advantage with a trip to the charity stripe, and then dropped in another basket to make it a 7-4 affair.

Aikens pulled the Jags right back into it with a 3-pointer, but Victoria East responded with a couple more baskets to remain out front. Amanda Montoya, DeHavalan Watts, and Jennifer Mahula each scored to put Floresville back in front 15-13, but the Lady Titans went on a 7-point run to close out the first period, and led 20-15 at the buzzer.

The scoring run continued into the second period for Victoria East, as the Lady Titans ran off another 7 unanswered points. Aikens eventually broke the run when she went to the free-throw line and sank two shots to make the score 27-17. Aikens added another 5 points in the half, while Montoya added 2, and Erica Hernandez dropped in another 3 points. When time expired in the half, it was Victoria East out in front, 43-29.

East started the second half with a 9-2 run, but the Jags started to fight back a little harder. Hernandez took a trip to the free-throw line, and Liesel Raabe dropped in a basket to make the score 52-35. Aikens sank a 3-pointer and then hit a couple of free throws to make the score 53-40, and Hernandez added a 3-point play of her own when she followed up a basket with a trip to the line.

The Lady Titans went on another good run, though, and the Jaguars surely felt the game slipping further away. When the clock ran down to zero in the third, it was Victoria East on top, 65-47.

The scoring went back and forth a bit more evenly in the final eight minutes of play, but Floresville was unable to make up the ground it had previously lost. Amaro, Aikens, and Watts all scored for the Jags during the final period, but the game ended in a loss for Floresville, as Victoria East won 82-63.

Aikens led the Jags with 24 points during the game, followed by Amaro with 10 and Watts with 9 points. Hernandez scored 8, Mahula had 4, Shelby Leinneweber and Montoya each scored 3 points, and Raabe had 2.

The loss drops the Jags to 22-3 on the year, and 3-1 in district play. The two teams will meet again Feb. 3 in Floresville, and the Jaguars will undoubtedly be looking for a little payback.
