STOCKDALE -- An ongoing area rivalry heated up last Tuesday night as the boys and girls basketball teams from Nixon-Smiley made the short drive up U.S. 87 to Stockdale. In the end, it was Nixon-Smiley skipping town with a pair of victories, and the fans in Stockdale were left with disappointment.

The girls took the court first, and the Lady Mustangs exploded out of the chute. Led by Savannah Martinez, Nixon-Smiley scored 19 first-period points, while holding Stockdale and the Lady Brahmas to just 3. While Stockdale did much better in the second period to score 12 points, the Lady Mustangs tacked on 23, and took a sizable 42-15 advantage into halftime.

After the break, the teams returned to the floor, but little changed. The Lady Brahmas were held to just 7 third-period points, while the Lady Mustangs had their best scoring period of the night by hanging 24 on the board. Nixon-Smiley tacked on another 18 in the fourth period, as Stockdale scored 8 points. At the final buzzer, it was Nixon-Smiley with a huge 84-30 win.

Martinez scored 23 for the Lady Mustangs, followed by Tyhana Mejia with 14 points, Aleva Alvarez and Celeste Arriaga with 12 points each, and Megan Guerra with another 10.

On the other side of the ball, senior Ashlee Rangel led the way with 9 points, followed by Katelyn Shaver with 7 points, and Kristen Moore and Payton Killian with 5 points apiece.

The loss dropped Stockdale to 0-7 in district play, while the win lifted the Lady Mustangs to a 4-3 mark in the district.

Following the conclusion of the girls game, it was time for the boys to take the floor. The Brahmas were hoping to even things with Nixon-Smiley on the night, but the Mustangs had other ideas.

Just as the girls had done, the guys from Nixon-Smiley erupted in the first period of play and jumped all over the Brahmas, 23-8. The Mustangs added another 20 to the board in the second stanza, while holding the Brahmas to just 2 points. As the teams headed for the looker rooms at halftime, it was Nixon-Smiley in clear control, 43-10.

To their credit, the Brahmas made some great halftime adjustments and were competitive throughout the second half. Unfortunately for Stockdale, though, the Mustangs kept pace with the Brahmas, and had more than enough of a lead.

Nixon-Smiley held a slight scoring advantage of 17-14 over Stockdale in the third, and led 60-24 heading into the final eight minutes of play. Both teams pushed the tempo in the fourth, and each scored 19 to provide a thrilling finale for those in attendance. When the final buzzer sounded, however, it was Nixon-Smiley with the big win, 79-43.

Senior Garrett Earlywine led the Mustang scoring effort with 19 points in the game, followed by sophomore sensation Sam Moore with 16 points, freshman Jordan Van Auken with 13 points, and junior Nick Pena with 12.

Tristan Marquez, Jacob Cardenas, and Bandy Larison each scored 8 points for the Brahmas, while Joel Marquez tossed in 7 points, and Gage Haley added another 6.

While Stockdale fell to 0-5 in district play, Nixon-Smiley improved to 3-2, and remains in the middle of the battle for the district’s playoff positions.
