Warhorses defeat Crystal City, Pearsall

Coach Paul Wells lead his team to another win over Pearsall last Friday night. It was a “well rounded game with great effort,” said Coach Wells and the score of 66-46 proved that.
The Warhorses opened the game out shooting the Mavericks 18-8 to take control of the game early and establish the pace of the game. Leonard Pompa, Dalton Kramer, and Cash Walker each had a three pointer in the first quarter. The Warhorses continued to play aggressively in the second to end the half 30-18. Pearsall continued to play hard but could never close the gap and Devine’s lead continued to grow until the end when they won 66-46.
Cash Walker scored 39 points including four 3 pointers, Brady Cardenas 7, Justin Contreras 6, Kramer 5, Pompa and Kam Adams and Sergio Martinez with 3 each.
