Pecos squads playing host to Greenwood

The Pecos Eagles will play their first District 4-3A doubleheader tonight at the Pecos High School gym, as the Eagles take on Greenwood in varsity, junior varsity and freshman games.

The girls will face Greenwood in JV and varsity games at 4:30 and 6 p.m., while the boys are scheduled to face the Rangers in freshman, JV and varsity contests in the old and new PHS gyms, at 4:30, 6 and 7:30 p.m.

Both Eagle teams will be seeking their first wins in district, but while it's the 4-3A opener for the boys, the girls come in after district-opening losses to Monahans and Fort Stockton, while the Rangerettes split their 4-3A openers, losing in overtime against Kermit a week ago and then routing Presidio at home on Tuesday, 68-11.

The Eagles gave up just as many points to Fort Stockton, but scored a lot more, in a 68-48 road loss on Tuesday. The Prowlers pulled away from the Eagles in the final period, but coach Veronica Valenzuela said her team still had problems breaking the press that hurt them at home in last Friday's loss to Monahans.

Valenzuela said Greenwood lost their top guard from a year ago, but the Rangerettes return their post players from last season, including Landry Johanssen, who led all scorers with 15 points on Tuesday. Leslie Rodriguez led Pecos in their loss to Fort Stockton with 14 points.

Greenwood's boys come into tonight's district opener ranked No. 3 in the state with a 14-3 record, with their latest win coming at home on Tuesday night against Snyder by a 60-49 final score, in a game in which the Rangers built a 37-16 halftime lead. That's pretty much what happened last year in Pecos for Greenwood, as they built up a 27-point lead in the first half on the way to a 64-39 win. Guard Kris Hatley led Greenwood in scoring that night, and led the Rangers this past Tuesday against Snyder with 17 points.

"We're going to give in all we've got," said Eagles' coach Joe Flores. "One thing that's been in our favor we have played good lately at home."

Pecos built up big first half leads in their last two home games, beating Alpine and Crane, but have struggled with second half scoring lately, especially on the road. They lost on Tuesday at Jal, 59-38, as the Panthers outscored them in the second half, 34-18. It left the Eagles with a 7-12 record on the season.
