Three minutes into the second quarter, Hahnville lost its leading scorer, Brian Singleton, and Destrehan lost Josh Martin, after braising up to each other on the court. Both were ejected from the game, forced to watch the rest from the bench. However, the Hahnville Tigers stepped up and kept the momentum flowing.
"We had to just keep playing hard," said Reginald Lumar. “We had players who came off the bench and played the game."
Reginald Lumar , scoring 11 points did an excellent job of keeping the ball in the hands of the Tigers. "We came out like fire," said Lumar. He was the only Hahnville player who scored double figures. Singleton, before being ejected from the game, scored 9 points along with Irvin Humphrey, and Kentrell Lockett. Humphrey also had a total of 11 rebounds.
Hahnville outscored Destrehan 19-8 in the first quarter, with 10 of those points coming from forced turnovers. While the Wildcats outscored Hahnville 16-9 in second quarter, they could not get close enough for the win. Destrehan had a difficult time on offense holding on to the ball, and Hahnville capitalized on their difficulty.
Both teams look forward to this big rivalry knowing that there will be only one winner. The team that comes mentally and physically prepared will leave the gym with the game. This was a big win for Hahnville because it keeps them undefeated in the district.
