Sharyland, La Joya and Veterans hope for playoff spot

20110201_VMHS-v-Rowe-Boys-Basketball_013It is the month of elimination, do-or-die, dead man walking etc., etc. Yes, the state playoffs are just around the corner and four teams stand a chance to move on.

Record wise, Veterans Memorial (19-11, 9-5) sits in the most comfortable position at the number three spot in 32-4A. However, that position is no first class seating. Tuesday night saw the Patriots get smashed at home by district leader Roma, 47-29. Despite the loss, the Patriots still have a one game lead over Hidalgo (17-10, 8-6). Just behind the Pirates sits Rio Grande City (13-13, 8-6), Edcouch-Elsa (8-9, 7-7) and Juarez-Lincoln (9-8, 7-7) who are sitting and waiting for teams to fall.

32-4A BOYS BASKETBALL: Vets lose to district leader Roma

MISSION -- Though the Lady Patriots of Veterans Memorial incurred a surprise loss to Roma on a last second 3-point banking buzzer beater, it was the loss that the men's team endured which hurts the most, losing 47-29.

In the beginning, the Patriots matched well with the district leaders (12-1 in 32-4A play), going point for point the first couple of minutes. However, six straight points by the Gladiators--including a four-point play--gave the visiting team all the momentum when the first quarter ended.

SOCCER: Lady Eagles' Navarez scores hat trick in win over RGC

RIO GRANDE CITY -- Friday night wasn't a bad way to end non-district play for Aaron Clemons' girls. Behind senior Jannet Navarez's three goals, the Mission Eagles took down the Rio Grande City Rattlers 5-0. 

The offensive flurry--which included a 3-0 halftime lead--was exactly what Clemons was hoping before Tuesday's showdown with Palmview to open up 30-5A play.

Eagles overcoming obstacles in preparation for district

20110125_MHS_SOCCER_BOYS_TEAM-JB_0002It wasn't an easy way to start the season off for the Mission boys soccer team. Due to players being ineligible, the team struggled at the Brownsville Tournament two weeks ago. However, the team responded well last weekend when they took third at the tournament in McAllen. Due to that, head coach Christos Barouhas is feeling better about his team's performance.

Adding to the confidence is the ineligible players should be back before district starts next week.
