Eagle girls finally play home game

Seven weeks into the 2003-04 basketball season, the Pecos Eagle girls finally get to play a home game tonight, as they take on the Crane Golden Cranes in the second game of a home-and-home series.

The Eagles, who lost to the Cranes this past Friday by a 49-29 score, will host Crane at 6:30 p.m., following the junior varsity contest, scheduled for 4:30 p.m.

Pecos' boys, meanwhile, will play their sixth straight road game tonight in Big Spring, as they take on the Steers in freshman, junior varsity and varsity contests, scheduled for 4:30, 6 and 7:30 p.m.

Friday's loss to Crane left Pecos' girls with a 3-10 record on the season. Coach Veronica Valenzuela said the Eagles had problems again with their shooting, and also gave up four to five baskets to the Cranes on the fast break.

"We had the same problem as far as rebounding goes. We were out-hustled there," she said. Crane's 6-foot sophomore Amanda Baker ended up scoring 11 points, while Rachel Gonzales led all scorers with 14. Pecos was led by Leslie Rodriguez's eight points, and Danielle Garcia's seven points.

Aside from being their home opener, tonight's game is also the final one for the Eagles before starting District 4-3A play. They'll be home again on Friday night to take on Monahans.

The boys will also be at home on Friday, against Crane, after ending their six game stretch away from home. The Eagles won their first two games away from town, beating Van Horn and Lamesa, but have dropped their last three, the latest a 67-48 decision this past Saturday at Andrews. Oscar Parada had 16 points and Justin Lara added 14 for Pecos.

Big Spring was also in last week's tournament in Lamesa along with the Eagles, and fell to the host Tornadoes in the seventh place game on Wednesday by a 54-30 final score. "Big Spring's got some good athletes," said Eagles' coach Joe Flores. "They'll be bigger than we are, and while they've had a hard time as of late it's going to be a tough match-up for us, because of their athletes."

The boys, who are 6-10 on the season, have one more game after Friday, against Jal, N.M., before opening their district schedule on Jan. 16 against pre-district favorite Greenwood.
