Although the Indians put forth a respectable effort, the Duncanville Panthers powered to a 78-52 win in a District 11-6A game. The Panthers raced out to a 29-14 lead at the end of the first eight minutes, and widened it to a 52-26 doubling at halftime. After Andreas Lane’s 3-pointer from the right corner tied the contest at 3-all, Duncanville went on a 14-0 run that was snapped by a Jayden Becks trey. V’Zarion Roberson was a bright spot for the Indians with 11 points, seven assists and five rebounds. Roberson finished with two treys, including a buzzer-beater at the end of the third quarter that made it a 58-39 game. Lane finished with three 3-pointers and nine points total.

Three whitewashes to open new season have WHS girls off and running Make it three clean sheets in three outings for goalkeeper Liv Epps and the Waxahachie Lady Indians defense. The Lady Indians closed out the Joey Rodriguez Memorial Showcase at the Midkiff Athletic Complex on Friday and Saturday with two more shutout victories, beating Carrollton R.L. Turner, 4-0, on Friday and Fort Worth Trimble Tech, 3-0, on Saturday. The senior scoring tandem of Kaydence Ramirez and Peyton Renfro each recorded a brace in Friday’s win over R.L. Turner. For the North Texas-bound Renfro, it was her first two high school goals in almost two years after suffering a torn ACL in the 2021 preseason. The Lady Indians finished with 13 shots on goal and found the net twice in each half. Ramirez added two assists to Renfro, and Sam Hernandez added an assist to Ramirez. On Saturday against Trimble Tech, it was more of the same, as Epps and the defensive crew led by Amiyah Carter, Emilee Jones, Jaya Johnson and others kept the opposition off the scoreboard again. The Lady Indians had opened their season on Thursday afternoon with a 1-0 victory against Denton Ryan. The annual Highway 287 Showcase was renamed this year to honor the late Joey Rodriguez, the Arlington Sam Houston soccer coach and president of the Texas Association of Soccer Coaches who passed away on Oct. 17 at the age of 44 after a nearly 2-month battle with COVID-19.
