(Seguin) - Junior forward Trystin Silas poured in 22 points to help the Seguin boys basketball snap a two-game slide in District 26-5A Friday night with a 55-42 win over Boerne-Champion at Goldie Harris Gym.

Seguin jumped out to 17-8 lead by the end of the first quarter and used a 22-16 scoring edge in the second period to take a 39-24 cushion into halftime. The Matadors cooled down offensively in the second half, producing just 17 points, but they held the Chargers to 19 to notch the 13-point win.

In addition to the big night from Silas, Christian Marinez totaled 11 points, Arturo Hernandez nine, Evan Head seven, Michael Mickles four, and Justice Head two.

The win moves Seguin to 2-3 in district play, 9-15 overall. The Matadors continue the 26-5A schedule Tuesday with a 6:30 road game in Lockhart.

The Seguin girls concluded the first half of the district schedule Friday with a 50-34 loss to Champion in Boerne.

The Matadors trailed 11-7 after the first quarter, 26-12 at halftime, and 35-24 going into the fourth quarter. Champion won the final period 15-10 to pull away for the 16-point win. No individual stats were available at press time.

With a 3-4 district record at the mid-point of the 26-5A schedule, the Seguin girls are in fifth place, a game back of fourth-place Boerne-Champion (4-3). Marble Falls (7-0), Kerrville-Tivy (6-1), and Dripping Springs (5-2) occupy the top three spots in the standings.
