Wildorado holds off Texline

In a tight battle that came down to the final seconds, the Wildorado Mustangs avenged a lopsided loss to Texline three weeks ago to earn a hard fought 30-29 win on Senior Night in front of a packed house at the Mustangs Gym.

The win was huge for the Lady Mustangs (20-7) who pulled into a first-place tie with Texline (24-7) at 8-1 in the District 3-1A race with one game remaining. Wildorado also gets even with the Lady Tornadoes after suffering a 61-39 loss in the first meeting.

Both teams handled major momentum swings in this contest. After a sluggish first half, Wildorado led 14-8 at halftime thanks to getting out to a 12-4 lead in the first quarter. Texline battled back quickly in the third going on a 13-4 run taking a 23-20 advantage. In the fourth, the game was tied, 27-27, until Lady Mustang guard Reyna Segovia knocked a key 3-pointer from the left wing putting Wildroado on top 30-27 with 2:37 remaining. Texline did cut that deficit to 30-29 on a layup by Jada Clay with just over a minute remaining, however, Wildorado was able to hold on in the closing minute.

“It was a great win for us,” Wildorado head coach Dixie Gonzalez said. “I told the girls this was going to be the perfect storm. It was Senior Night, and we were able to survive and hold on. Texline started hitting and made a run, but we did a great job of closing out their shooters and blocking out.”

Segovia’s three points came on her timely bucket in the fourth. Jami Perkins finished with a team-high 14 for the Lady Mustangs. Clay led Texline with eight.
