The Mavs used a 25- point first quarter to jump ahead and never trailed--winning 71- 24. The Mavericks had five kids in double figures with Derik Martinez and Johnny Plowman leading the way 'with 12 points each. They were followed by Brandon Strain with 11, Jacob Esquivel and Raymond Saucedo with 10 and Mark Thomas with 8. On Friday, February 7, the boys travelled to Mesilla for a showdown with the Sonblazers. Mesilla jumped ahead early on and lead by as many as 13 points. The Mavericks came out in the second half and after slowly chipping away at the lead, ac- tually got a four-point lead in the fourth quarter. The come- back fell short as the Sonblazers sealed the deal with free throws down the stretch. The Maver- icks were led by Jacob Esquivel with 18 points, Johnny Plow- man with 14, Derik Martinez and Raymond Saucedo with 12 and Brandon Strain with 6. The Mavericks have three district games left and most likely need to win them to force a playoff game with Mesilla Valley. LHS will travel to Tularosa on Friday for another big road game.
