“Our mindset was to stay focused since it was at their gym and the atmosphere of playoff games are always crazy intense,” senior Izaila Martinez said. “It was to play together as a team, have fun and take care of business on defense so our offense could get started by it.”

The Lady Lions kept consistent with the first half ending in 35 points and second half in 31 points.

We played as a team and fixed all of the little things in the beginning.”

“We wanted it more,” senior Kylie Douglas said. “Don’t get me wrong Bastrop wanted it pretty bad but in the end we were the team who punched first. We played as a team and fixed all of the little things in the beginning.”

“Knowing that we never know when our season could end, I am excited to battle with my team every second of the game tonight,” Martinez said. “I am focused and I am excited knowing my team and I have prepared for playoffs since the first day of school.”
