Herd use big third quarter to douse Flames

Herd use big third quarter to douse Flames

November 22, 2014

Hereford head coach C.J. Villegas had quite a conundrum earlier this week, as his team’s scheduled basketball game on Friday night with Shallowater was canceled because the Mustangs had an area-round football playoff game to play.

But the Amarillo Home School Flames were willing to fill in and play the Whitefaces at Whiteface Gymnasium, and the Herd did not disappoint.  The maroon and white outscored the Flames, 28-8, in the third quarter en route to an 88-55 blowout.…

That was not the case, however, as Dimmitt battled back to within three points late, but Hereford was able to hang on for a 51-45 victory.…
