In their second meeting this season, the 8th Grade Maroon Fillys beat Poteet an aggressive game and caused a lot of Poteet turn overs. They previously lost to the Lady Aggies in their very first game this season. They went into that game with almost no practice and lost a very tight game.
“With a lot of nervous energy, the Fillys started the game slowly giving Poteet an early 0-6 lead. After settling down and regaining their composure, the Fillys evened the score out by the end of the first quarter 6-6. Devine busted the game open with a 19 point 2nd quarter while holding Poteet to 6 points. At the half, the score was 25-12 in favor of the Fillys. The Fillys tightened up the defense and kept the offense rolling for a 46-28 victory in the end. Our girls are blessed with speed, and that really helps us create problems for the other team.” Coach Julie Oropeza
