The C.C. Winn Mavericks varsity boys’ basketball cagers under the guidance of head coach Paulo Valero and assistant coaches Julio Cumpian, Patrick Sanchez and Eric Ramos kicked off their respective campaign for the District 28-5A hoops title on Friday, December 14, 2018 by hosting the Somerset Bulldogs who last season advanced all the way to the UIL State Tournament Final Four in a 6:30 PM district opening hard court encounter at the Eagle Pass ISD Student Activity Center Arena.

The proud and gutsy home standing Mavericks gave the visiting talented Bulldogs more than they could handle on this night battling the Bulldogs with an outstanding effort on both ends of the court but unfortunately came up just a little short as the Somerset Bulldogs escaped with a slim five point victory over the gallant young C.C. Winn Mavericks by the final score of 49 to 44. The Mavericks were led by junior point guard Jairo Maldonado who scorched the nets for a team high 20 points in this contest.

The C.C. Winn Mavericks opened up District 28-5A play vs. the reigning UIL Final 4 playoff participant the Somerset Bulldogs led by Head Coach Bryan Penna. The CC Winn Mavericks’ game plan was to force the Somerset Bulldogs into tough contested 3’s and to not give them anything inside. The plan worked all game long as the Winn Mavericks were able to hold them down on defense led by a defensive effort by Moe Gaytan, Eduardo Nava, & Saulo Ruiz. The visiting Bulldogs could never get going as they had to settle for contested drives or off balance 3’s for much of the game.

The Mavericks offense led by Jairo Maldonado (20 points) unfortunately couldn't take advantage of the low scoring output by Somerset. Coach Penna designed a defense to take away Mavericks Wing player Moe Gaytan as they were constantly doubling him inside. Gaytan still managed 8 points to his credit. Down by 1 & then down by 3 late in the 4th quarter the Mavericks had several opportunities to tie or win the game, but unfortunately the shots would not fall. Angel Huerta scored 5 points for the Mavericks and Diego Rodriguez contributed with 4 points on his own.

The C.C. Winn Mavericks this week will take on the Floresville Tigers at Floresville on Tuesday and the Southside Cardinals on Friday at the C.C. Winn High School Gymnasium. We would like to take this opportunity to invite the entire community of Eagle Pass, Texas to attend our game on Friday at 6:30 pm. Go Mavericks!

Player of the Week: Jairo Maldonado #11 Junior Point Guard
