Seguin girls stumble at home against Tivy
(Seguin) – The basket on Seguin’s end of the court at Goldie Harris Gym seemed to have an invisible lid on the rim through much of the first half of Tuesday’s District 26-5A game against Kerrville-Tivy.

The Matadors were scoreless in the first quarter, and only a Carsyn Dietz layup with 2:31 left in the second period prevented a first-half shutout in a 67-17 home loss to the Antlers.

Seguin trailed 20-0 at the end of the opening quarter, 36-2 at halftime, and 51-8 after the third period before scoring nine points in the fourth.

Cold shooting wasn’t the Matadors’ only troubling offensive trend.

“Tonight too, was taking care of the basketball,” Seguin head coach Ricky Fernandez said. “We’ve got to take care of the ball. It doesn’t matter who were playing. It could be the Chicago Bulls, or Uconn, or whoever. We’ve just got to take care of the ball. Shots are going to go up for us – we had shots up, but we just couldn’t put the ball in the hole, either.”

Dietz ended up with six points to lead Seguin in scoring. Duvelsa Briones put in four, including a buzzer-beating three at the end of the third quarter. Karalynn Villegas also drained a three-pointer, while Madyson Tausch and Hannah Patek finished with two points apiece.

Katie Harmon led Tivy’s balanced attack with 12 points, and Catherine Kaiser finished with 11. Nine different Antlers found the scoring column, with six players producing seven or more points.

The loss drops Seguin to 3-3 in district play, 9-18 overall. The Mats conclude the first round of the 26-5A schedule with a visit to Boerne-Champion on Friday, and Hernandez remains optimistic that his team can bounce back from Tuesday’s abysmal outcome.

“You know what? It’s one game,” the coach said. “We’ve still got to go Champion on Friday night. We’re still in the mix, so we’re keeping it positive. We’ve just got to get back to work and figure this all out again.”

Champion is also 3-3 in district play and tied with Seguin for fourth place in the 26-5A standings. Marble Falls (6-0), Tivy (5-1), and Dripping Springs (5-1) occupy the top three spots.

Friday’s opening tip in Boerne is slated for 6:30 p.m.

Matadors drop road contest to Antlers
(Kerrville) – Kerrville-Tivy built a double-digit lead in the first half and never looked back to hand the Seguin boys basketball team a 58-43 loss Tuesday night in District 26-5A.

Seguin’s Trystin Silas led all scorers with 18 points, but no other Matador reached double figures. Christian Head and Evan netted six apiece, and Joseph Vela finished with five. Brian Cash, Jacob Vega, Michael Mickles, and Justice Head each put in two.

Seguin trailed 16-7 at the end of the first quarter and 35-16 by halftime. The Mats only trimmed four points off the deficit in the second half, edging the Antlers 14-12 in the third quarter and 13-11 in the fourth.

The loss drops Seguin to 1-3 in district play, 8-15 overall. The Matadors face another tough test on Friday when Boerne-Champion (18-4, 3-1) visits Goldie Harris Gym at 6:30 p.m.
