Edcouch-Elsa locks down late, tops Pace

(Brownsville Pace)


For the second time in two games, the Pace Vikings found themselves down nine points to open the fourth quarter, this time to the Edcouch-Elsa Yellowjackets.

The Vikings made a run to take the lead, but their offense was held without a field goal for the final five minutes and ultimately they fell 42-41 to the Yellowjackets in a District 32-5A contest Friday night at Pace.

Pace led 41-38 with less than three minutes to go, but back-to-back baskets from Marcos Escobar and Dillon Gomez gave the Yellowjackets the lead for good.

The Vikings had chances down the stretch for potential go-ahead baskets as Edcouch-Elsa went 0 for 5 from the free-throw line during the final 37 seconds, but three turnovers shut the door on the home team.
