LOS FRESNOS — Before the high school basketball season tipped off, the Los Fresnos Falcons weren't an odds-on favorite to hoist another District 32-6A championship trophy.

Favored or not, they stand alone once again.

Elian Gonzalez scored 16 points, Sebastian Szpak pitched in 14 and Ricky Altamirano added 12 to lead the Falcons to a 63-46 win over the Rivera Raiders and a fifth straight district crown Tuesday night in Los Fresnos.

"This one is special," Los Fresnos coach Marco Hinojosa said after the game. "They are all special, but this one means a little more because everyone counted us out. These guys believed in what we preached, and they went out there and executed. I love my kids. It's been a great year."

The Falcons came into the night one game ahead of Hanna in the district standings, but the win gives them the title outright as they finish the district season 9-1 and head into the postseason on a three-game winning streak.

Hinojosa said his team had no intention of sharing coming into the night.
