Eagles hoping to end Lobos' victory streak

The Pecos Eagles will get a chance to show off in front of a regional TV audience _ sort of _ tonight, when Pecos hosts the El Paso Mountain View Lobos beginning around 7 p.m.

The 5-3 Eagles will try to all but assure themselves of a sixth straight trip to the playoffs tonight against the Lobos, who at 8-0 have already clinched the District 2-4A title.

Pecos is currently tied for second place with Fabens, and both are a game up on 4-4 Clint, which faces Fabens tonight. A win by the Wildcats over the Lions and one by the Eagles over the Lobos would clinch playoff spots for both Pecos and Fabens.

Eagles' coach Becky Granado said Fox Sports Southwest would be on hand to cover tonight's game, but the focus won't be on the Eagles and Lobos. "They said they would be here filming Teresa (Fierro)," Granado said, who is one of the two officials for tonight's game. "They're doing a segment on officials and they selected her as the volleyball official to be interviewed."

The Eagles improved to 12-18 on the season Saturday with a 15-12, 15-6 win at home over Canutillo. It was the 11th straight match the Eagles have won the first game, a span that has seen Pecos go 8-3 after a 4-15 start.

One of those three losses came last month in El Paso, when the Eagles fell to Mountain View, 11-15, 15-9, 15-12. In that match, the Lobos were able to rally from an 11-6 deficit in the third game to win, while the first game loss was the only game so far that Mountain View has lost in district this season.

Hitter Diana Gonzales and setter Diana Ceniceros have been on the Lobos varsity since the team finished with only one victory in all of the 1998 season. The two seniors were all-district selections a year ago and have helped lead Mountain View to a 20-3 record so far this season. The Lobos already are assured of a first round playoff bye after clinching the 2-4A title this past Friday with a 15-3, 15-7 win over Clint.

"If we just play like we did in the first game last time, we should beat them," said Granado, who added that tonight's game would also be `Parents Night' for the Eagle players before the start of the match.

Mountain View will face Fabens in their final regular season game, while the Eagles will travel to San Elizario, a game moved up from Saturday to Friday to avoid conflict with the UIL area marching contests on Saturday at Ratliff Stadium in Odessa and Sorocco Stadium in El Paso.
