Boerne-Champion knocks Seguin boys out of 26-5A playoff race
(Boerne) – A second straight trip to the UIL boys basketball playoffs isn’t in the cards for Seguin, as the Matadors dropped out of contention for one of the four available berths in District 26-5A with a 75-33 road loss to Boerne-Champion on Tuesday.

Seguin had to win to stay mathematically alive, but the Chargers erased any hope of that happening by halftime.

Champion came out in an aggressive, trapping defense and forced a flurry of Matador turnovers to build a 24-7 lead by the end of the first quarter. The Chargers used a 20-12 scoring edge in the second period to take a 25-point cushion, 44-19 into the intermission. The onslaught continued in the second half with Champion outscoring Seguin 17-5 in the third quarter and 14-9 in the fourth.

Christian Martinez scored 14 points to lead Seguin, but he was the only Matador in double figures. Trystin Silas, who scored 22 in Seguin’s home win over Champion on Jan. 12, only ended up with five in the rematch. Arturo Hernandez, Evan Head, Erick Campos, and Justice Head finished with three each. Joseph Vela had two.

Champion played without its leading scorer Nathan Ghavidel (18.4 ppg) due to an injury sustained in practice, but the rest of the Chargers more than picked up the slack. Tristan Green scored 14 points, Sebastian Zuniga and Kobe Kerestes netted 10 apiece, and a total of eight players produced at least five points.

Seguin is 4-10 in district play, 11-20 overall. The Matadors host Lockhart on Friday at 6:30 p.m., then conclude the season with a road trip to Dripping Springs next Tuesday.
