BEAUMONT, Texas — 21-6A's decision to play district games on Wednesday and Saturday has led to some exciting matchups on what would normally be slow nights in Southeast Texas. That was the case once again this week.
The biggest win of the night was grabbed by the 17th ranked West Brook Lady Bruins. West Brook (23-3, 6-2) upset second ranked Summer Creek 50-44 to give the Lady Bulldogs (25-3, 7-1) their first loss in district play.
Across town the Beaumont United (22-1, 6-0) boys were tested by North Shore (11-13, 2-4) before getting past the Mustangs, 67-58. It was the 21st straight win for the Timberwolves.
Meanwhile the West Brook boys grabbed a crucial road win, downing Summer Cree 50-47 in Humble. The Bruins (21-6, 5-1) victory keeps them one game back of first place Beaumont United in the 21-6A standings.
