The Irvin Rockets were able to jump out to a quick 4-0 lead and that was the last taste they had of any lead or being close to one. The Andress Eagles answered with a fast 19-0 run towards the end of the first quarter. With a defense that suffocated the Rockets, the Eagles went into the half with a 40-18 lead.
The Eagles continued their aggressive play coming out of the half, playing a very close and tight defense. At the end of the third quarter the Eagles led, 60-36. With Andress leading scorer, Christian Villegas, the Eagles never looked back, as they came up victorious, 77-47.
Next up for the Andress Eagles will be the Canutillo Eagles at home on Friday. The Irvin Rockets will play until next Tuesday, February 5, when they host the El Paso High Tigers.
