The dream season for Higgins continued Friday night in Pampa, as the Lady Coyotes knocked off Wildorado 63-57 for the school’s first area round win since beating Groom in 1984.

Playing in their first area round game since 1988, Higgins was able to secure the momentum down the stretch outscoring the Lady Mustangs 21-13 in the fourth quarter. Lady Coyotes senior standout Cara Watson led the way during the historic victory with 15 points, followed by Matty King’s 14.

Higgins (21-3) now faces No. 1-ranked Nazareth (26-8) in the a Class 1A regional quarterfinal at a time and place to be determined.


Thrillers

Palo Duro’s Sh’Heneci Matthews played the hero hitting the game-winning shot with three seconds to go. Palo Duro (17-17) has won its first two playoff games by a combined four points. The Lady Dons move on to face district foe and No. 1 Amarillo High (34-2) in a regional quarterfinal Tuesday at the Tascosa Activity Center. The Lady Sandies dismantled El Paso Eastlake, 69-28, Friday.

Not to be outdone, the Clarendon Lady Broncos also pulled off a thriller on a Jade Benson buzzer beater to down New Deal 41-40 during a Class 2A area round contest at Canyon High School. Benson went on to lead the Lady Broncos with a game-high 16 points.
