Bears fall to Bulldogs, Mules


As December winds to a close, the Bear basketball team is rapidly approaching the beginning of its district season. The Bears are working hard to get better, and hope to take a few lessons away from their losses last week to Somerset and Alamo Heights.

La Vernia started strong against Somerset on Dec. 9, and led 16-12 after the first period of play. The Bulldogs outscored the Bears by a point in the second, but La Vernia still led at the break, 30-27.

The Bulldogs chipped another point off the lead by the end of the third, but nearly doubled up on La Vernia in the fourth to steal a 55-51 victory from the Bears. Tanner Sims scored 19 and Dalton Rockowitz tossed in 14, but it wasn’t quite enough for the win.

On Friday night, the Bears hosted the Mules of Alamo Heights. The Mules started the game strong, and the scoring was brisk at both ends of the floor. When the buzzer sounded on the first eight minutes of play, it was the Mules on top, 22-15.

Alamo Heights continued to pile on the points in the second period, scoring 18 in eight. The Bears hung another 10 points on the board, but found themselves trailing 40-25 as they headed for the locker room.

La Vernia came out swinging in the third period, though, and outscored Alamo Heights by 10 points, making it a 51-46 game. Play then went back and forth throughout the final period of play, but the Mules held a slight scoring advantage, and sealed the game with a 70-64 win. Zach Jarzombek led the Bears with 15, while Sims and Jonathan Garcia each tossed in 11 points.

The Bears were scheduled for a rematch with Somerset on Dec. 16, and will host the Poth Pirates this Friday, Dec. 19. Tipoff is set for 8 p.m.
