Bandera hosted the Fredericksburg Billies last Friday night in a packed Bulldog gymnasium. Both Bandera teams battled tough games but found themselves behind at the final buzzer.
The Freshmen started strong the first half, leaving the court at halftime with a 4 point lead.
"In the second half, we had a hard time handling the press and could not get shots to fall," Coach Bobby LaLanne said.
With turnovers and missed shots, Bandera lost their lead and the game 27-44.
Scoring for Bandera were Bryce Boyd 10, Connor Chessir 9, Josh Jauer 4, Trevor Leggett and Walker Hicks both with 2.
The Junior Varsity Bulldogs took an early lead in the first quarter 8-5, but fell behind 19-13 by halftime.
The Billies momentum overtook the 'Dogs as they increased their lead by 10 after the third, ending with the Billies up 49-31 at Buzzer.
Brady Keane led the Bulldogs with 15 points, followed by Ruben Vargas 5, Tryston Butler 4, and Nick Salas 3.
Bandera hosted Wimberley on Tuesday, and will find themselves in Bulldog gymnasium again this Friday, taking on Canyon Lake.
