Bearcats fall to Trimble Tech in Bi-District bid

February 21, 2012 by Randy Keck

Randy Keck/The Community News: Matt Bishop led the Bearcats Tuesday night with 14 points.

The Aledo Bearcats made it to the playoffs for the first time in four years, and for a while gave the state's number three ranked Trimble Tech Bulldogs all the game they wanted in a bi-district playoff game Tuesday night at Haltom City.

In a classic case of the game being closer than the final score (61-39), Aledo led after one quarter, 13-12, and midway through the second quarter went ahead 19-13 before the Bulldogs started battling back.
