BASTROP – The Glenbrook Apaches traveled to Prairie View Academy to take on the Spartans in a pivotal district game.
The Apaches and Spartans both got off to a slow start, but in the second half the Apaches responded by going down low to their post players and Glenbrook left Bastrop with a 51-44 win.
It was a big win for a Glenbrook team trying to stay in the playoff race.
“We were settling for too many outside shots in the first half,” Apache head coach Jeff Dalton said. “We talked at halftime about pounding it inside and Caden Copeland and Cade Morgan responded like grown men.”
The Apaches also got a spark from their bench, as sophomore guard Mason Hood played some key minutes.
“I’m proud of Mason Hood for stepping up,” Dalton said. “When Sam Marvin got his third foul in the third quarter, Mason dug in and got after their point guard.”
Dalton said he hopes this will be a confidence building win for the Apaches.
Caden Copeland led the way for Glenbrook, finishing with 17 points and 10 rebounds. Cade Conterez had another solid night finishing with 14 and Cade Morgan added 6 points to go with his 13 rebounds.
The Lady Apaches fell to the Lady Spartans in their game, 45-37.
“We played tough tonight,” Lady Apache head coach Rendi Dillard said. “It was back and forth and ultimately we could not hold on.”
As the story usually goes, it was turnovers and missed free throws that did in the Lady Apaches.
“Those things killed us tonight,” Dillard said. “These girls played their hearts out tonight, but we couldn’t get the win. We can still finish well in district if we can finish out with some big wins.”
Leading the way was junior Carsin Spurlock who scored a season high 24 points.
The Apaches and Lady Apaches will be back in action Friday when they travel to El Dorado, Arkansas to face Westside Christian.
