Big Six Tuesday Game of the Night: Lady Eagles nabs crucial victory over McHi

MISSION – Rene Garza’s squad was in a must win Tuesday night. A loss would have nearly mathematically eliminated the Lady Eagles from a postseason berth. Didn’t happen. Garza’s team came up big, beating the McHi Lady Bulldogs, 44-35.

Mission (17-9, 7-5) was led by Alexandria Cedillo who scored a game high 25 points. Cedillo was especially clutch in the fourth as she went nine of ten from the free throw line to ice the game. Teammate Carolee Lopez chipped in with twelve points.

Garza said following the game he was hoping to contain the McHi shooters, especially Arie Guerra. For the most part, said Garza, he felt his team was able to do that. Further, the coach was pleased with his team’s ability to break the McHi pressure defense.

By winning, Mission is still within one game of La Joya. Ironically, the two teams are scheduled to play Friday night. If the Lady Coyotes win then the Eagles season will be all but officially over. However, a win will give the two teams a tie in the standings. If the two teams finish tied then a coin flip will come into play.

Box Score:

Mission- 8   9   10  17 - 44

McHi-     7  8    6    14 -35
