A two point first half lead for the Lady Cats and a one point lead at the end of the third quarter failed to secure a win for the locals as they began District 15 5-A competition Tuesday night on the road in Longview. The Lady Lobos outscored the Lady Cats 21-18 in the second half to gain a one point win, 41-40.
