Late Mineral Wells bucket hands Bearcats 57-56 defeat

February 13, 2010 by Tony Eierdam

Mineral Wells guard Kenyon Calcote hit a running jumper from the lane with three seconds remaining in the game to lift the Rams to a 57-56 win over the Aledo Bearcats Saturday afternoon in a District 6-4A contest at Mineral Wells.

The loss drops the Bearcats to 2-11 in district play. Aledo will conclude its season at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 16, at home against Birdville.

Aledo junior guard Danny Glass hit consecutive free throws with 13 seconds left to play to give AHS a 56-55 lead. The Bearcats had come back from being down by 11 points in the third quarter.

Mineral Wells' Calcote scored with three seconds left, and Aledo junior guard Blake Reynolds' attempt from behind the halfcourt line at the buzzer sailed just wide of the basket as Mineral Wells hung on for the win.

Aledo senior guard Shane Smith led AHS with 20 points, with Glass adding 12. Also scoring for the Bearcats were junior guard Matt Barron with seven points, senior guard Dillon Hawkins and junior guard Dillon Huerta, each with six, junior guard Robbie Spreier with three and sophomore post Mike Wilson with two.
