BEEVILLE – The Skidmore-Tynan Bobcat basketball teams met their Beeville counterparts on Tuesday night and the teams split their two games.

The JV game went to the Trojans, 34-19, while the varsity match-up had the Bobcats on top, 69-54.

In the first game of the evening, the JV squads went at it. The pace was slow over the first period with neither side finding much offense. The Beeville boys led by three, 6-3, at the end of the first quarter.

The Trojan defense picked up the pressure in the second period, leading to several baskets and the hosts outscored the ‘Cats 17-4 to take a commanding 23-7 lead into the halftime break.

The young Trojans added nine more points to their lead in the second half and captured the win.

Andrew Casarez led the Bobcat scoring with six points, including one long-range jumper. Seth Phillips hit for three points while Bobby Quiroga and Fred Guajardo both finished with two points. Timothy Campbell added one free throw.

The Trojans got 12 points from James Maki (two treys) while Robert Torres and Joshua Salazar each hit for seven. Bryan Ybarra contributed six points and Jonathan Moses recorded five for Beeville. Garrett Keys made two free throws.

The varsity game was highlighted by the balanced scoring attack of the Bobcats. Five players reached double figures for head coach Adam Wollam.

The Bobcats never trailed in the contest. It was a 13-7 game after one period and the ‘Cats upped their lead to 11 points by the end of the first half, 30-19.

The Trojans rallied to begin the third period, making a run of eight straight points to pull within three at 30-27. The Bobcats repulsed the rally and went on to maintain their lead at 11. Both teams recorded 20 points in the fast-paced third quarter.

The final period was also more offense than defense as the teams combined for 34 points. S-T hit for 19 in the fourth while the Trojans recorded 15 markers.

Zach Mengers led the balanced scoring attack for the Bobcats with 17 points. Brandon East added 14 points (two treys) and Eric Schumaker hit for 12 markers (one trey). Zeke Huerta contributed 11 tallies (two treys) and John Hernandez had 10 points. Ryan Scott made one free throw to complete the S-T scoring.

The Trojans got 16 points from Brooks Holder (two treys) and eight points from both John Camacho and Dakota Del Bosque. Brent Reyna came in with seven tallies. Chris Maldonado worked inside for six points. Cody Vasquez and Hunter Hardy added four each and Tyler Stewart added one point.

The S-T JV boys will compete at the Odem JV tournament next weekend while the varsity will play in the Karnes City tourney.

The Trojans play Sinton at home on Tuesday night and will travel to Aransas Pass next weekend to compete in the Panthers’ tournament.
