The Lions lost Friday night by four points in a close game against Cedar Park. The final score of the game was 39-43.

“Our teamwork wasn’t as good as it has been in past games, there were multiple occasions where we didn’t make the extra pass for a better shot,” junior Blane Smith said. “It was also the first game in a month or so since we had all of our players back from injuries and other issues. We just need to adjust and get back on track. I’m confident that our teamwork will be better next game.”

In the first half of the game, sophomore Riley Reagan scored seven points making both of his free throws. Junior Kevone Graham also scored seven points in the first half, making them the two leading players for the beginning of the game. The team scored 13 points in the first quarter and 14 in the second quarter putting them at a total of 27 by halftime. 

We just need to adjust and get back on track. I’m confident that our teamwork will be better next game.”

— Blane Smith

“We just need to adjust and get back on track,” Smith said. “I’m confident that our teamwork will be better next game.”

In the second half of the game, the team scored a total of twelve points, with junior Blane Smith being the only player to score in the fourth. Smith scored five of the twelve points in the second half making three out of his four free throws and a basket.

“I think we should’ve won the game,” senior B’jon Allen said. “We had the lead for most of the game, but come the fourth quarter our execution wasn’t where it should’ve been.”

In last week’s game on Tuesday against Vandegrift, the boys turned out with a loss. The final score was 40-49. The boy’s next game will be tomorrow, Tuesday, January 12 against Marble Falls at home.
