The Hector Wildcats ran into a buzz saw Tuesday night when they came into Lavaca. The Golden Arrows hosted three games last night. The evening started out with the Junior Lady Arrows verses the Junior Lady Wildcats. The Junior Lady Arrows looked to rebound from a tough loss Monday to Cedarville, and rebound they did! The Ladies of Lavaca came out and took control of the game early and never looked back. When the final horn sounded Lavaca claimed a 43-33 win. Rylie Green led the team with 23 points and Anna Todaro added another 12. Junior Ladies are now 3-1 in conference and in 2nd place behind Mountainburg. Coach Jonathan Vire had this to say about his team,

“I was proud of how the girls fought to gut that one out. Anna got hurt with 5 minutes or so left in the game and I was proud of them stepping up when one of our leaders went down. We found a way to grind it out. Hector cut it to two with about 2:45 left, but then we finished the game with a 10-2 run. Everyone that played did something to help us win.”

“Friday is a big game for us. Danville is very skilled and athletic. We’re going to have to control the boards and limit them to one shot per possession. We’re going to have to do a better job Friday of keeping them out of the lane than we did tonight.”
