Jaguars fall at area
FLORESVILLE -- After a disappointing 72-64 loss to Laredo Cigarroa, the 2013-14 basketball season has come to an end for the Floresville Jaguars.
The Jags finished atop District 29-4A, and entered postseason play as the No. 1-seeded team. The Jaguars picked up a win over Victoria East to advance to the area championship.
Against the Lady Titans, Floresville jumped out to an early lead, and then used the concept of bending, but not breaking. The Jags had a big 13-3 advantage after the first period of play, and then slipped a bit in the second but remained on top 26-19 at the half.
Victoria East gained a bit more traction in the third, outscoring Floresville 14-11, but still had a good bit of work to do in the fourth if it was going to overtake the Jaguars. Floresville turned things up a bit, though, and kept pace with Victoria East throughout. Both teams posted 15 in the fourth period, but it was Floresville that skipped town with a 52-48 victory.
Senior De Havalan Watts led the team with 15 points, followed by Payton Cannon with 11 points and Kristyn Coldewey with 10. Coldewey had a double-double on the night, adding a whopping 20 rebounds to her stats sheet. Watts had four assists, Sarina Thompson had four steals, and Coldewey came up with six blocks.
The win moved Floresville into the area championship with Laredo Cigarroa. The game had to go into an overtime period, but in the end, it was Cigarroa on top, 72-64.
The team from Laredo got the jump on Floresville in the first, and led 12-10 after eight minutes. Cigarroa maintained the advantage into the second, and led 28-25 at the break.
The Jags slipped further behind in the third period, as Cigarroa outscored Floresville 18-12 in the third and took a 9-point lead into the final stanza. Floresville wasn’t finished, though, and the Jags put together a great effort in the fourth to score 18 points, while holding Cigarroa to just 9. It resulted in a tie, and the teams moved into an overtime period.
Unfortunately for Floresville, the Jags may have used a little too much gas in the fourth, as Cigarroa took the lead and pulled away. When the final buzzer sounded, it was Cigarroa on the winning side of a 72-64 final.
Cannon and Watts led the way as they combined for 29 points. Thompson and Coldewey combined for another 21.
The Jaguars end their 2013-14 season with an overall record of 24-11, and made a 13-1 run through district to win the 29-4A title. The team will lose a number of key players to graduation, including Watts, Cannon, Ashley Hoelscher, Cora Mikolajczyk, Ashlyn Laskowski, Amber Wasicek, and Ronda Ruiz.
