Los Fresnos holds on for win over Harlingen South

HARLINGEN — With the crowd on edge after the Lady Falcons had blown a 13-point halftime lead, Los Fresnos head coach Kim Edquist told her girls to simply “be patient” as time trickled down.

Harlingen South, however, had other ideas.

With less than 29 seconds remaining on the clock, Kelsi McDonough and Lynette Duran stepped up to the free-throw line and sank four crucial shots helping Los Fresnos escape Harlingen South with a 50-45 victory Tuesday evening at the Lady Hawks gymnasium.

“Defensively, the first half I think we did an outstanding job,” said Los Fresnos head coach Kim Edquist. “Then we came in (in the second half) and wanted to do the same thing that we had done the first half but we couldn’t. That’s just part of the game and that’s the excitement of basketball.

“We did well enough to hang on, they almost came back and took it from us, but we held our own.”

Allie Flores scored 15, Lynette Duran had 14 and McDonough added 10 points for Los Fresnos.
