GAME STORY: Hico rally falls short in bi-district loss to Windthorst (video, box score & photo gallery w/14 images included)

MINERAL WELLS — A dash of early foul trouble led to a bad second quarter for the Hico Lady Tigers, and eventually, a 39-35 bi-district loss to Windthorst on Tuesday. 

Kora Pennartz scored 11 points and Mollie Kirk tossed in eight more to lead Windthorst (19-11), which advances to face Valley View in the 2A area round.  

Forced to sit starter Lauryl Stegall in the second quarter due to early foul trouble, Hico saw an 11-11 deadlock become a 27-19 halftime deficit which would prove costly by game’s end.

Tigers eager to face the 7-2A Division I gauntlet

If the old adage that “familiarity breeds contempt” is true, then District 7-2A Division I might be one of the most contentious group of teams in the Big Country.

Close proximity and a history of success for several teams is the driving force behind this league — a formula for intense rivalries and several high profile games throughout 2018.

For Hico Coach Randy Thornton, however, the weekly intensity offered by this league is really more about respect than anything else. But it’s still something he’s looking forward to.

Experience a Hico strength in 2018

The numbers are smiling on the Hico Tigers in 2018, and the timing couldn’t be better. That’s because from top to bottom, District 7-2A Division I is perhaps the top 2A league in Central Texas.

Hico returns eight offensive and seven defensive starters among 13 lettermen from last year’s 7-4 playoff team. But the Tigers will have to contend with toughies from De Leon (12-1), Crawford (11-3) and Goldthwaite (4-7), along with what is expected to be a radically improved team from San Saba (3-7) that returns 18 of 22 starters.
