In their last outing, San Perlita fed off a 21-point performance from Victor Galvan en route to a 65-57 win against San Isidro. With the win, the Trojans capped of a 4-0 first half in District 32-2A play. Tige Johnson netted 12 points while Julian Herrera finished with 10 points.

Lyford will be at Santa Rosa at 7:30 on Friday night.

Hawks snap skid against Hanna: Harlingen South needed a win and got one Tuesday night. After a 4-3 mark to start to the first half of District 32-6A play, the Hawks snapped a three-game skid with a 66-49 win against Brownsville Hanna.

South is now 5-3 in league play and will host San Benito on Friday night at 7:30. The first time the two met it took double overtime to decide a winner, with the Hawks gaining the upper hand 66-63.

In the win against Hanna, Sean Turrubiates led the team in scoring with 22 points, Grant Lowery had 17 and Aaron Briones finished with 14 points.

Cards look to keep pace: Harlingen High dropped its second consecutive game on Tuesday night in a loss to Weslaco High. The Cards put themselves in a hole that they could not climb out of. Despite the loss, the Cards remain alive in the playoff race with a 5-3 District 32-6A record.

Big Red will look to snap their skid against Weslaco East on Friday. The final weeks of the season will be fun to watch, as the playoff race heats up.

Los Fresnos sits atop the district with an 8-0 record, while Rivera is in second place with a 6-2 record. Both Harlingen and South are 5-3 with Weslaco looking to make a late run with a 4-4 record.

Hounds look to spoil Hawks’ playoff run: Despite having a 2-6 district record, San Benito has caused fits for teams throughout the season and on Tuesday it was no different. The Hounds took Rivera to overtime, but fell 64-62.

In the loss, the Hounds got some strong play from David Sanchez, who scored 16 points while Ryan Reza finished with 15 points.

Friday’s tilt against South should be an interesting one as the Hounds look to throw a wrench into the district standings.
