SAN ANTONIO -- After falling to the Bandera Bulldogs by a single point Feb. 17, the 2013-14 basketball season has come to an end for the La Vernia Bears.

La Vernia had a strong season en route to an overall record of 24-6, but came up a tad short earlier this week in a bi-district playoff game with Bandera. The Bears fell by the final score of 40-39.

Things were even in the first period of play, as both teams hung 7 points on the board. The teams picked things up in the second stanza, and La Vernia moved out in front by scoring 14 more points. The Bulldogs managed 11 points in the second, and the Bears went into halftime with a 21-18 advantage.

Play was tight once more throughout the third period, and Bandera held a slight 11-10 scoring advantage, helping the Bulldogs narrow the gap to just 2 points with eight minutes left to play.

In the final period of play, the game remained tight as neither pulled away from the other. The game wasn’t decided until the final seconds of the game, when Bandera emerged on top after scoring a basket to put the Bulldogs up by a single point. As the final buzzer sounded at the Alamo Convocation Center, it was Bandera with the win over La Vernia, 40-39.

Jonathan Garcia was the Bears’ leading scorer with 15 points, followed by Colby Sims with 13 points, and Austin Pickens with 11.

“It was a tough loss. I feel really bad for my seniors,” said Head Coach Scott Grubb. “I didn’t want it to end so fast for them. I don’t want my guys’ season to be judged on this last game. We played hard but it didn’t happen for us.”

The Bears end their season with an overall record of 24-6, and the team was 7-3 in District 28-3A, finishing second behind Sam Houston. The team will lose several key players to graduation, including Sims, Pickens, Zach Balcar, and Carlos Salinas.

“We won 24 games this season and beat some really good teams,” Grubb said. “Some people measure your success by postseason wins. I don’t think that is fair to these young men. They had a great year and they have nothing to be ashamed of. I really enjoyed working with these young men.”
