While the Edinburg High Bobcats did what they could to hang around, the Los Fresnos Falcons' defense made doing so a difficult task.

Eventually the defensive pressure became too much for the Bobcats, and the Falcons imposed their will on offense as they cruised to a 62-45 win in a Class 6A bi-district playoff game Friday night in Los Fresnos.

The Falcons (26-8) will move on to the area round to take on Laredo Nixon, and the Bobcats end their season at 19-14.

Los Fresnos held Edinburg High to 15 points during the first half, and the offense steadily built a double-digit lead by the mid-second quarter and never looked back.

"We've been doing a great job defensively," Los Fresnos coach Marco Hinojosa said. "We've allowed somewhere around 45 points a game. That's what Edinburg scored, and that's one of our goals. We worked on defense and preached defense all week. We were just lucky to get some stops."
