Seguin boys edge Lockhart, tonight’s game vs. Dripping Springs to air on KWED
(Lockhart) – The Seguin boys basketball team carries a two-game District 26-5A winning streak into Friday's home clash with Dripping Springs after pushing past Lockhart 51-44 on the road Wednesday evening.

The Matadors trailed 29-26 at halftime, but won the third quarter 18-11 and edged the Lions 7-4 in the fourth period to notch the seven-point win.

Junior forward Trystin Silas led all scorers with 20 points, and Evan Head also reached double figures with 10. Christian Martinez added seven points, Arturo Hernandez finished with six, and Justice Head contributed four. Brian Cash and Michael Mickles netted two points apiece.

The win moves Seguin to 3-3 in district play, 10-15 overall. The Matadors are one game back of the three teams tied for second place with 4-2 district marks – Dripping Springs, Kerrville-Tivy, and Boerne-Champion. Alamo Heights is alone in first place with a perfect 6-0 record against 26-5A competition.

Seguin, led by 10th-year head coach Dwayne Gerlich, wraps up the first round of the district schedule Friday when Dripping Springs visits Goldie Harris Gym.

The Tigers, coached by Craig Swannak, enter the matchup with a 14-13 overall mark and a three-game winning streak after blowing out Kerrville-Tivy 50-30 on Wednesday.

Dripping Springs has been without its leading scorer and rebounder, 6’7” senior Richard Milliron (13.1 ppg, 7.1 reb.), since late December. Senior guards Matthew McKiddie, averaging 10 points and 3.5 assists per game, and Spencer Johnson (9.5 ppg) have picked up the slack offensively.

Silas leads Seguin in scoring with 15.0 average. Christian Martinez (9.7) and Evan Head (8.6) have been solid contributors as well.

Friday's opening tip at Goldie Harris Gym is slated for 6:30 p.m. The Seguin – Dripping Springs game will air live on KWED 1580 AM and Seguintoday.com, with pre-game coverage at 6:15.

Offensive woes continue in Seguin girls’ fourth straight loss
(Seguin) – Seguin girls basketball dropped its fourth consecutive District 26-5A contest Wednesday night in a 39-26 setback to Lockhart at Goldie Harris Gym.

The Matadors, who beat the Lions 40-38 on the road in mid-December, only scored three points in the first quarter and trailed 9-3 at the end of the period.

Lockhart produced the first bucket of the second quarter to build an eight-point cushion, but Seguin responded with six straight points on buckets from Carsyn Dietz and Klara Carter, along with two Desiray Rodriguez free throws, to pull within two.

The visiting Lions closed the half with a 6-0 run of their own to lead 17-8 at the intermission.

A pair of baskets from Rodriguez and a field goal by Karlynn Villegas provided the only points Seguin could muster in the third quarter. Lockhart won the period 13-6 to take a 16-point cushion, 30-14, into the fourth quarter.

The Matadors put 12 points on the board in the final period and closed the game with a 6-0 run after falling behind 39-20. Jazzriella Sanchez hit a layup and two free throws in the fourth quarter, Kaitlyn Baker delivered a pair of buckets, and Hannah Patek and Madyson Tausch each hit a field goal.

The loss drops Seguin 3-5 in district play, 9-20 overall. The Matadors and Lockhart are tied for fifth place in the 26-5A standings, two games back of Dripping Springs and Boerne-Champion, who are both 5-3 and tied for third. Marble Falls (8-0) and Kerrville-Tivy (7-1) are the first and second place teams, respectively.

The Mats visit Dripping Springs Friday at 6:30 p.m.
