Meanwhile on the other end Boyd was finally working freely underneath and Coleman, Norris and Floyd took turns feeding the senior post for easy two- pointers. The Eagles managed to close the quarter with a Jay Coker Jumper from the top of the circle to pull to within two, 23-21, going into the final chapter. Boyd and Coleman pumped in jumpers to open the last period and thwart the Mildred comeback effort. Two minutes later Allen Guery and Weaver combined for three points to slash the Trinidad lead to 29-26 with 4:04togo. At this point Cumby ordered his troops to take more time working for the shot and the Eagles respened to the change of Trojan tactics with personal fouls. Coleman paid two visits to the charity stripe and Boyd peppered an eight-foot jumper through the cords to move the Trojans into a 34-26 lead with one minute and a half to be played. After Weaver sank a bucket from underneath for the Eagles and Coleman hammered home a 10.footer for the Trojans the Eagles began to force up shots from the outside and Trinidad controlled the rebounds of the un- successul attempts. At this point the Trojans commenced to anxiously work the clock toward the 0:00 mark and it was bye-bye Mildred, hello district championship. CHARLES COLEMAN collected the rebound between two Mildred defenders and teammates Glenn Boyd, Brad Elsom and Kyle Floyd. The Trojans ripped the Eagles 39-31 to garner the District 43A championship and earn the right to meet LaPoynor in bi-district.
