The icy conditions last week came at the worst time for Nocona heading into the week playing the two toughest teams in the district.

Jackrabbits lose at CV, beat Henrietta

Published

on

The Bowie Jackrabbits had two wildly different games on Friday and Saturday.
The Jackrabbits lost at City View 58-41 and then blew out Henrietta at home 67-28 the next day.
Bowie was hoping it could have a good performance against a Mustang team that has won the past several years. The Jackrabbits thought they could compete well with City View this year, but did not shoot the ball well in the first game while getting burned by the Mustangs perimeter players from outside.
Unfortunately, Bowie did not get off to a promising start.
The Mustangs big, athletic front line was getting into the lane and causing havoc for the Jackrabbits, getting second chance points and getting to the free throw line. Bowie was not keeping up offensively as the team was down 20-6 after the first quarter.
The Jackrabbits did turn things around in the second quarter. They turned up the pressure on defense and shots that were not going in were now falling as Bowie got back into the game.
City View went into halftime up only 29-23.
After the Mustangs came out swinging in the third quarter to restablish a double-digit lead, it was all the Jackrabbits could do but keep the game within reach trailing 42-32 heading into the final period.
Unfortunately, Bowie could not score enough to make up the difference while the Mustangs continued to score at a pace that made a comeback attempt unlikely as time ticked away.
In the end, City View won 58-41.
