The Pleasantville Trojans split a pair of game Friday with the Madrid Tigers as the Trojan girls would win 44-38 and the boys would fall 83-74.
In the girls contest the Trojans girls would have a tight battle threw three quarters of play as they would be knotted up at 12 after one quarter, trail by two at half and trail by three at the end of the third quarter. An eruption of scoring in the 4th quarter by the Trojans would prove to be the difference as the Trojans would outscore the Tigers 17-8 to take the win. Pleasantville would be lead by senior Taylor Foley and her 15 points while senior Jordan Dursky would at 14. Pleasantville improves to 9-7 on the year and will next take on the Interstate 35 Roadrunners in Truro on Tuesday.
In the boys game the Trojans on paper coming into the game looked to be major underdogs against a Tiger squad that had only lost twice on the year and was coming off a 110-38 beat down of West Central Valley. Pleasantville would get down early trailing by 12 after the first quarter of play before battling back and only trailing by 7 at the half. The Trojans lead by junior Tagen Douma and his 22 points would continue to keep the game within reach before Madrid would prove to be too strong down the stretch. Pleasantville Head Coach Joel Allman tells KNIA/KRLS Sports he knew the matchup with Madrid would be tough but he also knew if his guys could play together they would be in the game. With the loss Pleasantville moves to 6-10 on the year and will take on Interstate 35 Tuesday in a rematch from a game Pleasantville won by four at home in December.
