“We finally had a team test us, and I am proud of how the team responded. At one point in the 3rd quarter Lytle cut the lead to 22-16. Something our boys have not faced yet. We answered the bell though and ran off 20 straight points to end the game. Credit to Lytle, and the fight their team showed. Defensively Blain Davis and Tristan Walker played outstanding. They were around the ball all game. Tristan is a little dude that gets after it, and I love it. District will continue to be tough, but I think we are up for the challenge,” stated Coach Sanders.
