BREAKING: East girls knock off undefeated Brennan in regional semis

BREAKING: Victoria East girls have picked up their 39th win in spectacular fashion, holding of San Antonio Brennan's late charge to hand the Lady Bears their first loss of the season 70-56 on Friday night, advancing to the regional finals where they will either face district rival Floresville or Cedar Park Vista Ridge, the team that eliminated them last year.

Brennan pulled to within six with 3:10 left in the fourth quarter, the closest they got at any point except for the first few minutes, before East took a time out, gathered itself as a team, and surged back out to a double digit lead.

The Titans (39-2) are the first team this season to score more than 60 points on Brennan (36-1), which entered the game undefeated and having held its last three opponents to less than 40 points.

Tanaeya Boclair, the Lady Bears biggest scoring and defensive threat, scored 21 points but fouled out with 33 seconds left and the game out of reach.

Adelaide Wenzel led the Titans in points at the half with 13; Danielle Franklin was close behind with 10 at the half.

Victoria East dominated play in the first half of its Region IV-4A semifinal matchup with San Antonio Brennan, forcing eight turnovers in the first half and jumping out to a 34-20 lead.

The Titans dictated play for much of the half, leading by as much as 15 at one point.
