Warriors headed to regional semis after 76-47 rout of Falfurrias

MISSION — The Santa Rosa Warriors set out this year to get to the regional tournament and, if the opportunity presented itself, get even with the Falfurrias Jerseys after being bounced by them in last year’s postseason.

Now, the Warriors can cross both off their list after tough defense and aggressive play on both ends of the floor guided them to a 76-47 win over the Jerseys in Tuesday night’s Class 3A regional quarterfinals at Sharyland Pioneer High School.

The win sends the Warriors to the Region IV-3A tournament for the first time since 2012 where they’ll face Goliad at 6 p.m. Friday at Seguin High School.

“We felt we were the better team since last year, but (Falfurrias) just beat us last year,” said Santa Rosa head coach Johnny Cipriano. “Our goal was to get to this point and face them again so that we could show who the better team was.”
