Head Coach Daniel Zika and the members of the Brenham Cubette Basketball Team were hoping that the third time would be the charm against the Magnolia Lady Bulldogs.
Unfortunately, it wasn't meant to be as Magnolia handed the Cubettes a heartbreaking 46-44 loss in their "play-in" game at Navasota High School on Friday night.
Brenham came out strong and took a 13-10 lead in the first quarter. However, Magnolia battled back and outscored the Cubettes 12-7 in the second quarter to take a 22-20 lead into the locker room at halftime.
The Lady Bulldogs had a big third quarter scoring 16 points to just ten points for Brenham. This gave Magnolia a 38-30 lead going into the fourth quarter.
The Cubettes battled back and tied it at one point. They actually outscored the Lady Bulldogs 14-8 in the final eight minutes of play. However, Magnolia held on at the end to win it.
There were some questionable officiating calls that did factor into the game. Three of Brenham's five starters Antyiahna Lang, Jayde Powell, and Halle Scheel all fouled out.
Lang led the Cubettes in scoring with 14 points, while Scheel had 11 points.
Brenham finishes the season with a record of 19-18.
