Wins over MV, Somerset lift Hondo to 13-2 mark

Somerset -- The Hondo Owls began to hit their stride on Friday, Dec. 12, when they rolled to a 90-61 win over Somerset in non-district girls’ basketball action.

All nine players who were suited up for the Owls got into the scoring column, with four players in double figures. Tyler Barnes led the team with 25, with 19 from Alexis Martinez, 13 from Candace Carroll and 10 from Maegan McKay. Kacie Dupont scored eight, with six each from Annette Diaz and Elizabeth Simpson.

After a midweek open date, the Owls will host 6A Del Rio this Friday, Dec. 19, in a 6:15 p.m. game in the Activities Center. This will be Hondo’s sixth game against a 6A opponent this season, with at least two more coming up on the schedule.

The Del Rio game will wrap up play before the Christmas break. The team will resume action in the Boerne Tournament on Monday and Tuesday, Dec. 29-30.

In the win over Somerset, seven Owls scored in the first period as they took a 25-13 lead over the Lady Bulldogs. They extended that to 43-25 at halftime.

Last Tuesday, Hondo (13-2) visited Medina Valley and held off a fourth quarter push from the Panthers to claim a 53-50 win on MV’s home court. Led by the 17 points from Barnes and 10 points from Carroll, the Owls also got key contributions from Simpson and McKay, both with eight points.
