HARLINGEN — It didn’t need overtime, but that didn’t make it any less suspenseful.
On Tuesday evening, the Harlingen Lady Cardinals and Brownsville Veterans Lady Chargers played the second installment of their District 32-6A schedule, and it didn’t disappoint.
After the Lady Cardinals defeated the Lady Chargers 42-41 in OT in their first meeting, it was Harlingen again that found a way to win 57-50 and clinch a share of the district title. With two games left to play in the regular season, the Lady Red Birds can clinch the league crown outright with a win on Friday or a Veterans loss.
“It was a close game, but people that needed to step up, stepped up tonight,” said Harlingen head coach Ashley Moncivaiz. “With other personnel being out, when we lose one (player) another has to be ready to come in, and tonight it was Nadia (Flores).
“This was a huge game for Nadia because this was something she needed for herself to see how good of a player she is, and for her to see how big this was for the team so she can continue to be successful.”
Flores, who is a sophomore, put away 29 points for the Lady Cardinals with 10 coming in the fourth quarter alone.
