Cards snap two-game losing skid

HARLINGEN — After having dropped their last two District 32-6A contests, the Harlingen Cardinals were in need of a rebound.

Thanks to balanced scoring and a hot start, the Cards got just that as they dismissed the Brownsville Lopez Lobos 65-53 Tuesday night in Harlingen.

“It feels good to get the win after two losses, but we have to keep getting after it,” said Harlingen’s Ernie Ramirez, who was one of four players to drop double digits Tuesday. “We came out focused on our defense and ran our offense. We went through our press in practice and three days of conditioning really helped.”

Harlingen’s Ramirez finished the day with 12 points.

The Cards will take on crosstown rival Harlingen South on Friday as they try to keep up the momentum.
