Rick Moreno splits the Boerne defense on the way to the hoop.


Hondo falls to Lytle, Boerne

Things continued to go sour for the Hondo Owl boys’ basketball team, with two more losses in the past week.

A two-point first period was more than Hondo could overcome on Friday, Jan. 23, in a 46-37 loss at Lytle.

Then on Tuesday, Jan. 27, Boerne had complete control of the defensive boards, as the Greyhounds pulled away for a 60-30 win over the Owls in the Activities Center.

Now with an 0-4 record in District 29-AAAA, the Owls fall to 7-19 on the year. In the coming week, they’ll go to Fredericksburg on Friday, Jan. 30, and return home to face Devine on Tuesday, Feb. 3. Both games are listed with 7:30 p.m. start times.

After falling behind 10-2 to Lytle in the first period on Friday, the Owls never got significantly closer than that, on the way to a nine-point loss to the Pirates.

Derrick Alarcon accounted for over half of Hondo’s scoring, with 19 points.

Likewise on Tuesday, Boerne also had a wire-to-wire win, leading Hondo 15-7 after one quarter, and scoring, on average, a 15-7 win in each of the four quarters, before finishing with a 60-30 victory.

No one for Hondo was in double figures for the game. Rick Moreno finished as the leading scorer, with seven, and no Owl shot a successful three-pointer on the night.

The game moved more quickly than most, largely because of the scarcity of fouls, especially against Hondo. The Owls were whistled for a foul only once in the entire game, and that came in the fourth period. The Greyhounds did not shoot a free throw.
