FLORESVILLE -- When Floresville was districted with Southside years ago, a great rivalry developed between the girls basketball teams. Playing each other often had district title implications, and every meeting fostered a playoff-like atmosphere. After spending time in a district with coastal teams, Floresville is back in with the San Antonio crowd, and back to playing Southside.

The first district meeting of 2012 between the two teams wasn’t quite like before. The home stands in Floresville weren’t quite overflowing, and there wasn’t a big turnout from the visiting fans. In many ways it felt like any other game, but on the floor, however, the intensity appeared evident from both teams and the matchup proved to be quite physical throughout the night.

The visiting Cardinals got things rolling and scored the first 2 points of the game, but junior wing De Havalan Watts responded with a pair of baskets, putting the Jaguars on top, 4-2. Play went back and forth from there, but Floresville finished the first period of play with a 5-point run, and took a 14-9 advantage into the second.

The first point of the second period was courtesy of Jaguar junior guard Payton Cannon, as she dropped in a shot from the free-throw line. Watts put in two from the charity stripe as well, and Southside also made a trip to the line. After nearly four minutes of play, there had yet to be a field goal scored until Cannon hit a short jumper. Freshman post Kristyn Coldewey got in on the second-period scoring for Floresville, as did senior Shelby Leinneweber and Watts. The Jags scored 16 points in the period, while holding the Cardinals to just 4 points, all of which came from the free-throw line. As the teams headed for the locker rooms, it was Floresville on top 30-13.

The Cardinals opened the second half by dropping a 3-pointer through the net, but Floresville went right down the court to score a deuce. A number of lucky bounces put an abundance of rebounds into the hands of the Southside players, but they did little with it. Southside had its best period of the game and scored 14 in the third, but Floresville stayed right with the Cardinals, scoring 13 points of its own, and holding a 43-27 lead heading into the final stanza.

Leinneweber scored the first two baskets of the fourth period for Floresville. Sophomore guard Lauren Trevino then got in on the action, as did juniors Ashley Hoelscher and Amber Wasicek. Southside quickened the pace and knocked down several 3’s, but it was far too little too late, as the Jags rolled to a 57-38 victory, as well as a perfect 2-0 start in district play.

“I thought the girls really played well as a team,” said Jaguar Head Coach Terri Twilligear. “They are really coming together and starting to understand my ‘team concept’ of basketball. We are pushing the ball up the floor with a quick tempo; then, if we don’t have anything out of the break, we set it up.

“My seniors are being great leaders on the floor,” she added. “Shelby Leinneweber does a tremendous job down low on the block, and she can totally control the inside game from the paint. Liesel Raabe is by far one of the best leaders I have ever seen at the high school level. She keeps her team under control and makes a difference on the floor just by being out there. She is also hitting big 3’s for us, so this is definitely helping our balanced inside-out attack.”

The Jags were scheduled to host McCollum last Friday evening, but results were unavailable as of press time. Floresville will return to the floor on Monday, Dec. 31, as the Jaguars host the Lady Indians of Harlandale.
