LA VERNIA The up and down basketball season continued for the Lady Bears last week, as the team began with a 52-25 win over Poteet, but then dropped a 44-25 decision to Lockhart.

The Lady Bears had no troubles with the Agates Jan. 3 in Poteet. La Vernia jumped out to a 13-7 lead after the first period of play, and took a 27-15 advantage into halftime.

La Vernia started the second half the same way it started the first, and outscored Poteet 13-6 in the third period to roll into the final stanza with a 40-21 lead. With another 12 points in the final eight minutes of the game, the Lady Bears returned home with a sizeable 52-25 victory. Kayla Markgraf led La Vernia in scoring with 14 points, followed by Madison Towns with 12 points and Taylor Penshorn with another 9.

The Lady Bears then hosted Lockhart in a non-district game Jan. 6. La Vernia helped keep it close in the first half, but eventually fell by the score of 43-25.

The game was close throughout the first half of play, as the Lady Lions held a 9-7 lead after the first period of play, and were on top 16-13 at the break. La Vernia was behind, but still very much in the game at that point.

Unfortunately for the home team, things took a turn for the worse in the second half as Lockhart outscored La Vernia 14-6 in the third, and owned a 30-19 lead heading into the final period of play. The second-half trend continued in the fourth period, and Lockhart once again outscored La Vernia, 13-6 for a final score of 43-25.

Kristine Key led the team in scoring with 7 points, followed by Taylor Penshorn with 6 points and Cat Reed with 4. The loss dropped the Lady Bears’ overall record to 10-12, but the team remains at 3-1 in district play. La Vernia was scheduled to face Sam Houston Jan. 10, and will host Gonzales this Friday, Jan. 13.
