Aransas Pass tops Lyford 56-41 in 3A regional quarterfinal

BISHOP — It was an emotional ending to an historic season for the Lyford Bulldogs basketball team.

After consecutive postseason victories against Santa Gertrudis Academy and Mathis, the Bulldogs came up short against the ninth-ranked Aransas Pass Panthers in a 56-41 third-round loss at the Bishop High School on Tuesday night.

Nevertheless, after the loss Lyford head coach Pete Torres had nothing but praise and optimism for his squad.

“I can’t even describe how proud I am of my kids,” said Torres. “Not only did they play their butts off but they showed what they were capable of, especially against a team like Aransas Pass.

“I think we executed well in the first half, we had some turnovers and maybe we could have had the lead going into halftime. But no matter what happened, these kids left it all out on the floor tonight.”
