PHS girls open district, boys face Panthers

PECOS, Jan. 5, 2000 -- District 2-4A basketball play begins tonight for the Pecos Eagle girls at home against the Clint Lions, while Pecos’ boys get in their final two pre-district games today and Saturday, on the road against the Fort Stockton Panthers and Greenwood Rangers.

The Eagles host the Lions, last year’s district champs, beginning at 6 p.m. tonight, while Pecos’ boys are scheduled to start at 7:30 p.m. in Fort Stockton, and at about 2:30 p.m. on Saturday in Greenwood against the Rangers.

The Eagles will be looking for their first district win in five tries against Clint, since the teams were paired together for the 1998-99 season. The Eagles managed just one win in district a year ago, while the Lions advanced to the playoffs for the second straight season.

So far in pre-district this season, the Lions have fallen back a little, while El Paso Mountain View has posted the best record of any 2-4A teams, at 12-2. Clint is 8-13 following their 49-36 loss to El Paso Hanks this past Wednesday, while Pecos comes into tonight’s game with a 3-9 record, after defeating Midland Trinity 55-39 last week in the consolation finals of the Midland Christian Tournament.

Clint got most of its scoring from their post players in Wednesday’s loss. Michelle Tullius scored 21 points and Marissa Arnold added 10 against the Knights, while Maricela Arenivas scored 24 points and Philly Fobbs added 13 in the Eagles’ win over Trinity.

Pecos’ boys will open their 2-4A schedule a week from tonight also against the defending district champs, Canutillo. Before then, the Eagles will try to get wins on the road this weekend against the Panthers and Rangers, who own three of the 11 wins so far against Pecos this season.

The Eagles have scored 48 points twice against Fort Stockton this year, but after losing by only four points at home back in November, they fell by 24 a week ago against the Panthers in Fort Stockton, 72-48, in Pecos’ last game of 2000.

Their first game of 2001, against Greenwood, was postponed Tuesday due to icy roads in the Midland area. The roads were clearer to the south, which allowed Fort Stockton to get in a 69-50 win over Rankin. Orlando Yanez led the Panthers with 19 points.

The Eagles and Rangers faced each other back on Dec. 15 in Pecos, with Greenwood coming out on top by a 62-46 final score. Jeff Addis got Greenwood out to an early lead and led the Rangers with 14 points, while Alex Garcia topped Pecos in scoring with 11.
