Ladycats eliminate Burleson, face Byron Nelson in area round on Friday

Staff Report

Aledo’s offense began with a flurry on Wednesday, putting up 28 points and building an 11-point cushion over Burleson’s Lady Elks by the end of the opening quarter. The Class 4A Region I bi-district match, played at Mansfield High, saw Justis Sczcepanski-Beavers leading all scorers by the end of the contest, which the Ladycats won, 69-53.

Beavers drained 18 points. Alyssa Dry and Madison Mittie added 14 and 10 points, respectively, to the Aledo effort with Kaylee Black and Breann Forbes scoring nine  points each.

Though the scoring pace slowed a bit in the final three quarters, the Ladycats had already done their damage and held off the Lady Elks for the balance of the contest.

Aledo moves to the Region I Area round, and on relatively short rest, will face Byron Nelson on Friday. The playoff contest will be held at Saginaw’s Chisholm Trail High School, beginning at 6:30 p.m.


Pojo girls top Lady Blues in bi-district game

Staff Report

Springtown’s Brooklyn Dauenhauer and Kaitlynn Mainord led the charge with 17 and 14 points on Wednesday, as the Lady Porcupines won their playoff match against Graham on Wednesday, 45-34. 

The weather-delayed Class 3A Region I bi-district match, played at Jacksboro High School (and originally slated for Tuesday), was never in doubt past the opening quarter, which saw the SHS girls take a 12-4 first-quarter advantage and teams playing virtually even the rest of the way.

The Lady Porcupines will be put to the test on Friday as they try to break Stephenville’s four-straight area playoffs win streak at Weatherford High School. The Honeybees are the district champs from 7-3A and beat Gatesville handily in the bi-district round. The game is scheduled for a 6 p.m. tipoff.

  • Fitting the pieces together

    That coaches will move on, due to advancement of career, life changes or a myriad of other influences, is a given. Aledo is not immune to the turnover, but is year-in and year-out apt to experience very modest changes, due to another myriad of positive factors.
