The Los Fresnos Lady Falcons took on the Corpus Christi Carroll Lady Tigers in another round of Non-District Play. Coming off a win over the Edinburg North Lady Cougars, Los Fresnos looked to get a win streak going.

A back and forth battle in the first quarter saw the Lady Falcons fall behind early on as the Carroll Lady Tigers matched Los Fresnos. After a close knit first quarter, Los Fresnos trailed by one, 12-11. The second quarter saw the exact opposite as only 12 combined points were scored between Los Fresnos and Carroll. Defense was the primary game plan for both teams as Los Fresnos managed to only put up eight points, but limited Carroll to only 4. 

With the score 19-16 at the half, there was still room for both teams to squeeze some offense in. Defense again took over in the third quarter as the Lady Falcons kept Carroll below 10 points while scoring 11 to make it 30-24 at the end of the third quarter.

Los Fresnos then opened up the fourth quarter with a huge surge of offense. Thanks to defense by the Lady Falcons, Carroll again was limited to less than 10 points scored. The Lady Falcons doubled their total in the fourth, scoring a game high 22 points to secure the win 52-33 your final score.

With the win, the Lady Falcons improved to 18-5 on the season. Los Fresnos has three more non-district games against PSJA, Port Isabel and La Joya before beginning District Play against Brownsville Rivera January 6.
