Arabians go 1-1 last week

Facing Carrizo Springs in their second district game of the season, the Arabians won 49-22 on January 14th. “It was good to get the win in our first road game of district play in Carrizo Springs. It took us a bit to get going in the first quarter, but we settled in and took control about half way through the first quarter. We had a great 2nd and 3rdquarter to put the game in our control. We did a good job of finishing out the game and taking the win.” Coach Jim Sessions

Following two district wins, the Arabians faced Crystal City on January 17th and faced their first loss at 49-59. “This was a tough, hard fought district game. It had the feel of a playoff game and both teams came out and played with great energy and effort. Defensively, we did some good things, but Crystal City took a lead in the 3rd quarter by making some tough shots. Offensively we did lots of good things once we settled in to the game. We made a run at them in the 4th quarter, but we came up a little short. Crystal City did a good job of closing the game out. I was pleased with the effort put forth by the girls in this hard fought game. Unfortunately, this game just did not fall in our favor.” Coach Sessions
