Wildcats remain at 19 wins but add to loss column in a game against Krum

Lady Kats & Cats play Alvarado Tuesday


With high hopes last week, the Kennedale Wildcats (19-5, 2-0) hosted the Krum Bobcats (11-8, 0-0). The Wildcats instead were overpowered by the hot hands of the Bobcats and lost 82-71. Even though Wildcat Pablo Agosto-Vega hit a three-pointer to start off the game, it was never a close game after the first quarter.

Krum hit an amazing 76% of their 3-point shots. Most teams would be ecstatic with 40%. (Kennedale hit 32%). Not necessarily the sole reason for the big win but combined with below-average field shooting by the Wildcats (44%) pretty well sealed it.

TEAM STATS (Kennedale/Krum): Rebounds 23/29; Assists 8/15; Steals 12/2; Blocks 1/1; FG% 44/62; 3PT% 32/76; FT% 69/72.
