ANDERSON HIGH SCHOOL—- The Anderson Trojans fall to the Lake Travis Cavaliers 44-37 at home.
The Trojans kept it close most of the way but Lake Travis was able to pull away in the fourth quarter. A back and forth first quarter left the Trojans down 11-9. Lake Travis relied on the three ball early, knocking 5 down in the first half. The Trojans only converted twice from downtown, both in the fourth quarter. Lake Travis held a 3 point lead going into halftime, 21-18. A defensive minded third quarter in which each team scored 5 points left a wide open game going into the 4th quarter. Lake Travis was able to hold off the Trojans by converting 10-13 from the free throw line to close the game, countering Anderson’s attempt to play the foul game and comeback. The final score read 44-37 in favor of the Cavs. Adam Zambie and Eric Conner each led the Trojans with 9 points.
With the loss, the Trojans fall to 6-5 in district play with a road game against the Del Valle Cardinals up next.
