Tonight was the final night of the regular season for our area Boys High School basketball teams. District 2-3A came down to a final night, winner take all, between 14th ranked Estacado and 15th ranked Shallowater.
Estacado beat Shallowater at home late last month.
This was a heated contest and in the 2nd quarter, the big man, Micah Bailey took it in himself and Shallowater went up by ten 23-13.
But Back came the ‘Mats, down 12 until Malik Woodruff with the nice shot fake and drained it to cut the lead to nine.
On the next possession, Jessie Johns drilled a three, and the Mats got within six at 32-26.
But the mustangs responded, wasting no time off the miss, ran the fast break to get the lead back up to eight.
The mustangs took the game and the district 2-3A crown with the 87-77 win over the Matadors.
