FLORESVILLE -- The Floresville Tigers headed to Castroville to take on the Medina Valley Panthers last Tuesday night in conference play. The Tigers shot poorly in the first half, as Medina Valley shut down the Tigers’ inside game, holding center Charlie Albert to only 2 points in the first half. The battle on the boards was fairly even, but Floresville had a few turnovers late in the second quarter, allowing the Panthers to get a few easy scores and end the half with an 8-point lead.

The third quarter proved to be the turning point for the Tigers, though. Albert and junior Derek Moczygemba started hitting some shots, combining for 14 of the 16 points scored by Floresville. The Tigers tied it all up at 37-37 at the end of three.

Early in the fourth quarter, Albert found himself on the bench, fouling out with almost seven minutes left in the fourth quarter. Then, the Tigers’ younger players took over. Junior Mason Ray put on a shooting clinic, hitting three of his five 3-pointers, and Moczygemba continued penetrating and getting to the basket, while sophomore Chris Albert got a couple of steals to keep the Tiger momentum going. Floresville finally took the lead for good, and went on for the victory over the Panthers, 58-52.

The Tigers finished with three players in double digits. Ray led all scorers with 17 points, Moczygemba had 12 points, and Charlie Albert added 10 points. Moczygemba led the Tigers in two other stats, including rebounds with seven, and steals with five.

On Friday night, the Tigers found themselves playing their last home game of the season against the Kennedy Rockets. The Rockets just came off a big win over McCollum and were looking forward to upsetting another district opponent. The Tigers came out a little slow in the first quarter, but played well enough to end the quarter with a 6-point lead. Floresville picked it up in the second quarter, dominating the boards and sending the Rockets to the locker room down by 18 points.

The second half was more of the same with the Tigers dominating the boards and getting some easy baskets. Floresville ran away with an easy win despite struggles at the line, beating the Rockets 75-35. Senior Charlie Albert shot the lights out, shooting 100 percent from beyond the 3-point arc, and finished with 22 points and nine rebounds. Senior Darren Orth added 11 points and five rebounds, and led the team with four assists and three steals.

It was a great win for the Tigers, finishing strong at home and on Senior Night. Senior Tigers Charlie Albert, Robert Barrera, Jaron Medina, Andres Morales, Darren Orth, Kurtis Quillan, and Austin Villanueva were recognized prior to the start of the game and would like to thank the community for all of its support. The senior Tigers would also like to send out a big thanks to Coach Coy Tackitt, Coach Robert Brooks, and Coach Clay Kasprzyk for their help and guidance throughout the year.

The Tigers were scheduled to finish out district play Feb. 12 at Southside, and will enter playoffs the following week. Go, Tigers, Go!
