Eagles facing Loboes girls in Monahans

The Pecos Eagle boys won't be going to Alpine tonight, but Pecos' girls will be heading over to Monahans this evening, as the third week of the 2001-2002 basketball season gets underway.

The girls will be taking on the Monahans Loboes in freshman, junior varsity and varsity games beginning at 4:30, 6 and 7:30 p.m. Pecos' boys were scheduled to go to Alpine, but that game was canceled due to the Bucks' football playoff game against Kennedale later this week.

The Eagles come into tonight's game with a 1-2 record after losing a week ago at home to Fort Stockton, 44-38. Pecos allowed a one-point Prowlers' lead at halftime to grow to 11 points in the third period, then saw their fourth quarter comeback fall short, after getting to within a point of Fort Stockton midway through the period.

The Eagles had trouble shooting from both the field and the foul line, after doing both well for most of the game the night before, in a 58-51 victory over Presidio. Pecos played both games without senior guard Kathy Maldonado, who hurt her knee in the team's season-opening loss at Crane.

"Kathy's going to get a little playing time tonight, but I've still got to be careful with her," said Eagles' coach Veronica Valenzuela, who was down to only eight varsity players for last week's games.

Monahans, like Fort Stockton, will be trying to get their first win of the season against the Eagles. They are 0-4 so far, but did give traditional Class 2A power Ozona a tough game at home last week. The teams were tied at 19-all at halftime, before the Lions used a 15-7 third period to go on for a 45-35 victory.

Laurie Crumrine led Monahans in scoring with 13 points, while Amanda Lowe and Sherisse Shokoui put in eight apiece for the Loboes.

Tonight's game is the first of two on the road for the Eagles this week. They'll go to Presidio on Friday before coming home to host Odessa Permian next Tuesday. Pecos' boys will play four games this week despite missing out on their trip to Alpine tonight, when they compete in the Andrews Tournament.

Coach Tino Acosta said the tournament has been cut from three to two days, due to the Mustangs' football playoff game on Saturday against Southlake Carroll. The Eagles will play two games in Andrews on Thursday, and two more on Friday in the round-robin tournament, Acosta said.
