Lago Vista Sinks Eagles
Lago Vista dealt Lexington its first district defeat Tuesday night with a 57-51 win over the Eagles. The game was tightly contested from the first made shot, a two-point shot by Lago Vista, until the last shot which also was a deuce by LV.
Lexington’s first goal was a trey by Eriq Mitchell that gave Lexington a 3-2 lead briefly. LV retook the lead and held it until Donnie Havard dropped a three-pointer to give Lexington a 13- 11 lead. Jason Washington made a two after LV had tied at 13. LV tied at 15 and then took the lead 17-15. From that point on Lexington played keep up.
LV would open a lead of six and Lexington would cut it to one or two. Lexington finally pulled ahead 40-39 in the fourth quarter. LV then scored the next four points to establish a 43-40 lead. Lexington never pulled even again. A.J. Flot, Mitchell, and Jason Washington made baskets, but the Eagles could never get even with the Vikings.
