FALLS CITY -- It was looking like they may make another run at a state title, but after falling to Thorndale in the regional semifinals, the 2012-13 basketball season has come to an end for the Falls City Beaverettes.

After winning their district, along with bi-district and area championships, the Beaverettes entered regional quarterfinals play last Tuesday against Shiner. The Beaverettes didn’t ever quite run away with the game, but they got in front of Shiner early, and stayed out front.

The Beaverettes took a 9-7 lead after the first period of play, and led 16-11 at the break. Falls City outscored Shiner by 2 points in the third, and went into the fourth period with a 27-20 advantage. Shiner got the best of Falls City in the fourth, but the Beaverettes never gave up the lead and sealed a 37-33 win.

Haleigh Blocker led the Falls City offense with 12 points, followed by Tiffany Dziuk and Kayla Purcell with 7 points each. Kayla Kotara scored 6 points, and Kaelan Cheatham was good for another 5. The win gave the Beaverettes an overall record of 30-4, and punched the team’s ticket to the Region IV tournament at New Braunfels Canyon High School.

Falls City squared off with Thorndale in the regional semifinal, but had some trouble in the process. The Beaverettes jumped out to a 12-4 lead at the end of the first period, but then watched as Thorndale stormed back in the second, outscoring Falls City 15-7, making it a 19-19 game at the half.

When the teams returned in the second half, Thorndale appeared to have things figured out. Thorndale outscored Falls City 12-4 in the third period and 12-6 in the fourth, locking up a 43-29 win, and ending the Beaverettes’ season.

Blocker once again led the team in scoring with 12 points, followed by Cheatham with 5 points, Dziuk with 4, and Purcell with 3 points. Kotara scored 2 points, Hannah Lyssy dropped in another 2, and Madison Hartmann scored 1 point at the free-throw line.

The loss leaves the Beaverettes at 30-5 on the year, and the team was perfect at 10-0 in district play. Falls City won the District 30-1A DI title, a bi-district title, an area championship, and a regional quarterfinal game.

“I am very proud of this team and the way they came together throughout the course of the season,” said Head Coach Brian Osuna. “This group of young ladies worked hard every day and played hard every game. This group achieved a 30-win season, the most in school history, and advancing to the regional tournament was a huge accomplishment.

“This team was young and inexperienced due to the class that graduated last year,” Osuna added. “Many that were role players last year had to step up and be major contributors this year. The proudest moment as a coach is knowing that kids leave everything on the court all the time and that’s what we had this year. That led to the success of Beaverette basketball once again. Many believed this year would be a rebuilding year for the Beaverettes.”

The Beaverettes will lose a number of key players again after this year, including district MVP Kayla Kotara and defensive player of the year Kayla Purcell. Still, several key players will be back on the hardwood, along with many talented underclassmen. But perhaps Osuna summed it best when he said, “I guess we don’t rebuild -- We just reload!”
