Lady Rebels Fall to Bel Air; Lady Dawgs are bi-district champs

Girls high school basketball playoffs recap from 2/11/14
Midland Lee started fast in their bi-district playoff game against El Paso Bel Air, but sooner rather than later the Lady Rebels got into foul trouble. Midland Lee ultimately saw their season come to an end with a 48-43 loss.

Head coach Monica Ramirez had this to say about tonight's outcome "We started off pretty strong. We had the lead that we expected to have. And then a little thing called foul trouble came along. We've never been in this situation all season long where all three of my main guards and my leading rebounder were in foul trouble and tonight was that night."

On the other hand, Midland High took the floor following the Lady Rebels, but were hoping for a different result. The Lady Bulldogs played El Paso El Dorado, who boasted a stellar player named Adeola Akomolafe who is committed to UTEP. The Bulldogs got down early 2-0, but never looked back as they went on to become bi-district champions with their 67-59 win.

MHS head coach Wes Torres was thrilled with his teams performance, saying "I challenged them last week, last Wednesday. I said you know no one thinks you guys can beat this team inside because they have such a strong presence inside. And the girls really have responded all week, since last Wednesday they have brought their A game in practice and really have been competitive. I knew they would come out and play well just because of what they've done in practice."
