The Abilene High Eagles didn’t have to wait long to avenge their 69-65 overtime loss to crosstown rival Cooper. Just one week to be exact.
AHS overcame a 27-23 halftime deficit with a strong third quarter and poured it on the fourth on their way to a 63-52 win Friday at Eagle Gym. The victory capped a 2-0 week against fellow Abilene high schools.
The Eagles, who went 0-3 at last week’s Catclaw Classic, edged Wylie 52-49 in a nondistrict thriller Tuesday, providing some positive momentum heading into Friday’s game with Cooper.
