Bowie basketball teams lose to City View

Published

on

Boys
The Bowie Jackrabbits lost a tough game against City View on Friday night.
The Mustangs won 65-42 in a game that was moved to Alvord because of a water leak at Bowie’s gym.
The Jackrabbits came into the game as underdogs, trying to hold on to its fourth place in the district standings with a 5-4 record.
Against a 6-2 City View team, it was going to be tough.
Early on, the Mustangs almost blanked Bowie in the first quarter.
A couple of free throws were the only offense the Jackrabbits could get to open the game while City View led 15-2.
Bowie answered well offensively in the second quarter, making four 3-pointers and outscoring the Mustangs, but City View still led by double-digits 28-18 at halftime.
The Mustangs had their best offensive stretch in the third quarter, scoring 22 points as they knocked in three 3-pointers.
The Jackrabbits got all of their scoring during the period from the bench players as the four combined to score 12 points.
It did not help Bowie catch up, but the team was still finding some success heading into the fourth quarter.
The Jackrabbits competed well with City View in the final period, but with the team down 20 points heading into it, it only made the final score more respectful.
The Mustangs won 65-42.

Girls
The Bowie Lady Rabbits lost a tough game against City View on Friday night.
The Lady Mustangs won 49-27 against the Lady Rabbits.
Bowie came into the game following its first district win against Henrietta which was a close game. Facing a City View team trying to lock up the district title would be a tall order, especially with leading scorer Ziba Robbins missing the game due to injury.
The Lady Rabbits fell behind 13-6 after the first quarter and trailed 25-12 at halftime.
The third quarter was Bowie’s most competitive of the game as the team scored in double-figures for the only time in the game as four different players made one basket.
Unfortunately, the Lady Rabbits could not slow down the Lady Mustangs, who kept scoring consistently in the 11-13 range every quarter.
City View went on to win 49-27.
