Saltillo Lions Basketball Remains Undefeated in District Play

The Saltillo Lions march closer toward an undefeated district season with a strong 53-39 win at Sulphur Bluff Friday night.

Another game, another slow start for the Lions. Unlike on Tuesday, Senior Night for Saltillo, the Lions trailed Sulphur Bluff, 15-8 after the first quarter. Saltillo found its footing before halftime, though, as the visiting Lions took the upper hand going in to halftime, 24-23. Saltillo outscored the Bears (16-11, 8-4 district) in both the third and fourth quarters; 18-10, and 11-6, to leave Sulphur Bluff with a tough 53-39 win over the Bears.

The Lions remain unbeaten in district play at 10-0. They are 16-7 for the season and are ranked #13 in Class 1A in a TABC Poll.

Next up, the Lions (17-7 overall, 11-0 district) will return home to take on Yantis in the final regular season game for Saltillo as the Lions will hope to keep their undefeated district season intact.
