The Saltillo Lions got another tough district win on Senior Night, 83-74 against Avery Tuesday, February 9.

It was a slow start for both teams as Saltillo led Avery 13-6 after one quarter. Even though the Bulldogs outscored the visiting Lions in the second quarter, Saltillo still managed to lead at the half, 32-29. The Lions’ offense came alive in the second half as Saltillo just outscored Avery 23-20 to make it a 55-49 lead at the end of three quarters. While Avery (9-12) did its best trading blows, barely being outscored 28-25 in the final quarter, it still was not enough for the Bulldogs as Saltillo left Senior Night with a tough 83-74 win over Avery.

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.

Tuesday Andrew Redburn led the Lions with 39 points. Chris Boekhorst had 17 points, David Whitworth scored 13 points, Gunner Tarver added 9 points and Colby McCoy and Coy Collins rounded out the scoring for the Lions with 3 and 2 points, respectively.
