Tularosa fans as well as the players didn't expect what happened next. The fourth quarter began and the Lady Mavericks got back to business and like many teams fear the Lady Mavericks became lethal with their 3-point shooting. Senior Sarah Atilano and Junior Rachelle Gomez de- cided that it was time to do what they knew how to do'. Both Atilano and Gomez had two 3-' pointers a piece in the early part of the fourth quarter. With a team effort the Lady Mavericks tied the game at 57 putting Tularosa fans in shock and mak- ing the Lady Maverick fans go crazy. With 4:21 left in the game Tularosa took the lead again by 4 points, but Rachelle Gomez Was not about to let the Lady Wildcats have the lead so she hit another 3-pointer and then got a steal and scored an easy lay up to put them up 62-61 with 3:34 left in the game. The game was then tied at 62 when Tularosa made one of two free throws. The lead kept going back and fourth, but with 1:58 to go Rachelle Gomez decided she was going to put a stop to the tug of war by hitting her fourth three of the game bringing the Lady Mavericks lead to 5. Sa- rah Atilano helped secure this lead by being 4 of 4 from the free throw line. The Lady Wild- " cats were able to make a couple more baskets with seconds left, but it wouldn't be enough to help them pull through with the win. Time ran out confirming the Lady MaCcericks as the District 2A Champions.
