The subvarsity Midlothian boys basketball teams split a total of four games last week.
They managed one win in three contests with rival Waxahachie and one squad knocked off Mesquite Poteet in its game.
The freshman B team was the only group to get a victory against Waxahachie and it did so 51-31.
The Panthers started strong as they jumped out to a 15-3 lead in the first quarter. The second quarter saw Waxahachie play better and get a little closer, but a 12-3 Midlothian advantage in the third quarter led to the victory.
Will Traylor led the team with 13 points and Bray Olmstead added 10. Greg Drake and Cameron Peay each scored nine. Nathan Phillips played great post defense and Peay and Drake also were big factors on defense.
This win moved the B team to 2-0 on the season.
The JV team played a strong first quarter, but couldn't keep up with Waxahachie after that in the 68-49 loss.
Midlothian led by one point after the first quarter, but Waxahachie rebounded and took a six-point lead into the second half. The Indians outscored Midlothian 39-26 in the second half to lead to the lopsided win.
Despite the loss, Isaiah Smith led the way with 15 points. Henri Seastrunk added 12. Luke Boykin and Nick Miller each scored six. This drops the JV team to 0-2 on the year.
The freshman A team started strong against Waxahachie, but couldn't pull out the win in the 67-46 loss.
Midlothian led 13-9 after the first quarter, but Waxahachie went on a 20-6 run in the second quarter to take a 10-point lead at the half.
An even third quarter kept it close, but the Indians had a big fourth quarter to get the win. Seth Golden had nine point and Jackson McLaughlin and Ibrahim Muhammad each scored eight. Steven Wallace and Cade Marriot both scored six points.
Wallace was a standout on defense, working hard in the post.
The A team rebounded well to get a come-from-behind 48-45 win against Mesquite Poteet on Friday.
Poteet led 17-9 after the first quarter, but the Midlothian defense started locking down the Pirate scorers and led the offense claw back into the game. The Panthers trailed by just five at halftime and a big third quarter gave them the lead for good.
Golden led the team once again with 15 points. Muhammad scored nine and Isaac Rangel added eight. Wallace and Marriot each contributed six while McLuaghlin scored four.
The team improved to 2-1 on the young season.
