Owls’ 22-point run puts away Poteet

A game that was close for one period turned into a rout for the Hondo Owls Saturday morning, Nov. 15, in varsity girls’ basketball action.
The Owls, who owned an eight-point lead midway through the second period, scored the next 22 points over a 10-minute stretch to put away Poteet, on the way to a 74-39 win in non-district play.
The game had been moved from Friday night to Saturday morning to avoid a conflict with the Hondo football playoff game.
The same situation will occur this weekend. The Hondo girls’ and boys’ basketball teams were scheduled to host John Paul II out of Schertz on Friday, but those games have now been moved to Saturday, Nov. 22. The varsity-only contests will feature the girls at 11 a.m. and the boys at 12:30.
Up 26-21 after one period, and leading 35-27 halfway through the second, the Owls finished the half with a 6-0 run. Candace Carroll got it started with a steal and a layup, and Tyler Barnes followed with a three.
It was all Hondo in the third period, as the Owls extended their lead to 57-27, as the seniors, Barnes and Carroll helped build the huge lead.
A Poteet three-pointer with two minutes left in the third were the Aggies’ only points in the quarter, as Hondo finished on another 6-0 run to go up 63-30.
Barnes finished with 21 points, Carroll had 16, while Alexis Martinez added 11 and Maegan McKay scored 10.

Starting fast -- possibly as fast as they have ever started -- the Hondo girls’ basketball team had ten points on the board in the first 50 seconds Tuesday night, Nov. 18.
Things settled down after that, but that initial burst carried the Owls to a 66-34 win over Uvalde Tuesday in the Activities Center.
After a Saturday morning game against Schertz John Paul II, the Owls will have the days off leading up to Thanksgiving, before hitting the road for their first tournament of the year, at Harlingen, the 2014 Dr. Keillor Classic. The Owls will be one of 15 teams in the field, and will open play Friday, Nov 28, at noon against San Benito, in the Harlingen South High School gym.
Against the Lobos, Maegan McKay scored a layup off the opening tip. Candace Carroll got a quick steal and was fouled, hitting both free throws, just 13 seconds into the game.
After a Uvalde bucket, the Owls answered with back-to-back threes, from Prysilla Ramon and Tyler Barnes, for a 10-2 lead with 7:10 left in the first. After a couple of minutes, the Owls hit two more buckets in a row, a layup from Alexis Martinez and a three from Carroll. Hondo had another 10-point run to go up 25-6 with 2:15 still to play in the period. By then, they were completely in control.
Barnes and Carroll were in double digits with 21 and 15 points, while Ramon wound up with nine.
