El Paso, Texas — Katia Gallegos scored 21 points, leading the Franklin Cougars to a 6-2 district 1-6A record with a 46-32 win over Montwood Tuesday night.

Montwood battled hard, getting a great performance from sophomore Mia Lozoya who scored 16 points for Montwood, but the Rams couldn’t take care of the basketball, and Gallegos took over in the second half sparking a run that created major separation on the scoreboard.

Franklin held a slim 24-21 half team lead, but held Montwood to just five third quarter points which ended up being a major difference.
