East Central girls fall to Stevens in playoffs
SAN ANTONIO -- After falling to Stevens in the first round of the playoffs, the girls basketball season has come to an end for East Central.
The Hornets finished fourth in District 28-5A, and entered the playoffs with the final spot out of the district. Unfortunately, East Central ran into Stevens in the first round, and was promptly booted from postseason play on the heels of a 61-35 loss.
In the first period of play last Tuesday, Stevens jumped all over East Central, and the Lady Falcons held a huge 20-3 lead after the first eight minutes of play. It was a closer period of play in the second, but Stevens once again outscored the Hornets, and took a 35-12 lead into the locker room for halftime.
East Central continued to improve in the third, but Stevens bettered the Hornets by 3 points, and extended its lead to 26. Both teams dropped in 12 points in the final period of play, but it was over for the Hornets, as the team fell by the final score of 61-35.
Freshman Brittany Rodgers and sophomore Janik Alexander-Smith led the Hornet scoring effort with 9 points and 8 points, respectively. Claudia Flores scored 6, Taylor Lewis scored 5, and Miranda Olmos dropped in 4 points. Savannah Avila tacked on another 3 points on the night.
The loss drops East Central from the playoffs and ends the season for the Hornets. The team finished 10-20 overall, and had a district mark of 3-7 in its first year under Head Coach Ginger Hartman. With so much young talent returning next year, though, the team should be in a better position to contend within the district and beyond.
