Meadow suffered one of their biggest losses in recent memory Friday morning, only to take their game back that afternoon with one of their biggest-ever comebacks.
After falling to Floydada Thursday, the Broncos suffered a 29-57 Perryton loss in Round 2 of the Fibermax Caprock Classic. They were behind the 3A Rangers a frustrating 4-17, 10-37 and 18-49 after each of the first three quarters, but learning why will help in the long time, according to Head Coach Kyle Johnson.
"(Friday) morning exposed a lot of things that we need to work on, and that was the positive that came out of the game, he said.
They were down again that afternoon against Colorado with an 11-14 first-quarter deficit, picked up to a slight 20-16 halftime lead, then fell behind again in the third. They then tied the score and stampeded into an eight-point shooting streak before the Wolves could land a single bucket, and maintained a comfortable lead through most of the rest of the match.
"(Friday) afternoon we had some bad spots, but overall we played pretty well, Johnson said. "We got out of our zone and started playing man defense.
Scorers from the Perryton match included: Christian Herrera 1-2 8, Tyler Harrison 3-0 6, Brandon Flores 1-0 3-4 5, Ralph Urias 1-0 1-1 3, Zach England 1-0 0-2 2 and Adrian Flores 1-0 2. The Broncos landed four of seven free-throw attempts for 57 percent and the Rangers for 83 percent.
Christian Herrera and England led the Colorado City game with 14 points each, followed by Trey Herrera 7, Brandon Flores 4, Urias 3, Adrian Flores 2 and Harrison 2.
Now 9-7 overall, the Broncos will resume district play Friday at home against Wilson. Until then, Johnson is giving his herd of Broncos no rest in effort to garner another trophy this February.
"Were going to spend all of next week on fundamentals, trying to get better, he said.
