Saltillo Lions Open Season With Loss


Saltillo Lions varsity hosted Class 3-A Chapel Hill Tuesday night and, according to Coach Bill Giles, “are not ready to compete against a good 3A team.” Saltillo lost 81-21.

Chapel Hill outscored the Lions 28-5 in the first quarter and continued 20-point quarters in the second and third. Saltillo had only one double digit quarter, the second. It was 51-15 at the half. Coach Giles said, “We have a lot of work to do.  Hopefully our players now understand the importance of doing things right, not turning the ball over, and being more active on defense.

Lane Bench led Saltillo scoring with 12. The team was 4 for 8 from the free throw line. Others scoring for the Lions: Lyle Bench 2, Logan Camp 3, Adam Valenzuela 2

The Lions are 0-1 on the season and see action Thursday through Saturday in the Slidell Tournament. They face Denton Calvary in the first game of the tourney.
