The Lions fell to the Vista Ridge Rangers Friday night 51-65 at Vista Ridge. They will not go to playoffs this year due to a Georgetown win.

“I think overall we did alight,” senior David Bonner said. “We obviously didn’t achieve what we wanted which was to get to playoffs but I think our overall performance was good.”

The Lions stayed within range of the Rangers in the first half. In the first quarter, the Lions were down 13-17, and in the second quarter, they were down 27-32. 

We stick together as a team, try to stay focused, and execute offensively.”

“We got it done on defense in the first half and kept them off the boards,” junior Chase Cotton said.

The second half escaped the Lions as they were down 35-47. Then, the Rangers took the win in the final quarter. Next, the Lions host Dripping Springs for senior night.

“We stick together as a team, try to stay focused, and execute offensively,” Bonner said.
