Cardinals down Hanna 69-56

HARLINGEN — For nearly three quarters, the Harlingen Cardinals and the Brownsville Hanna Golden Eagles contest was a tight match.

But it was the aggressive Cardinals who outlasted the Eagles in the end, as a fourth-quarter run paved the way to a 69-56 win Friday night in Harlingen.

The win put Harlingen, Hanna and Harlingen South all at 4-3 and vying for third place in a tight District 32-6A race.

“I told the guys that Hanna was ahead of us coming in and we need to beat who’s ahead of us (in the standings),” said Harlingen head coach Greg Yates. “They came out and did a great job. It was a competitive first half and we did a good job in the second half.

“We got on a bit of a run, started attacking the basket a little bit more and that was the difference in the game.”
