Feb 17, 2020 – Tonight’s game had more intensity and physical play than most games I’ve been to – boys or girls. It was a draining, defensive battle for the entire 32 minutes of play. And I have to say, for most of the game it was so close, I had no idea who would win.
Dripping Springs took the lead in the first half, and led at half time 26-16. In the second half, Boerne played with a bit more passion, and little by little, inched back into the game. By the 4th period, Boerne had fought back to within 7, 30-23. With 2 and a half minutes left, Boerne narrowed the margin to 2, 34-32. With 59 seconds left in the game, the score was 38-36 as Dripping Springs struggled to maintain the lead.
Their defense would hold Dripping Springs to only 12 points in the second half, clawing their way back to win by the narrowest of margins. The final score was Dripping Springs 38, Boerne Champion 39.
Congratulations to the Boerne Champion Girls Basketball team for an impressive win tonight, and to their credit, they never gave up.
