After a lackluster district-opening win against San Benito, Hanna rebounded with a better showing at Los Fresnos on Tuesday night.

Hanna head coach Fermin Lucio was pleased with the effort, but the Golden Eagles would fall to the Falcons 57-52 in overtime and drop to 1-1 in the District 32-6A standings with a tough game against the Harlingen South Hawks on tap for tonight at 6 p.m.

“I think we showed up to play,” Lucio said. “But the bottom line is it was a loss. I mean we learn from it and we got better watching the film. Now, all we’re worried about is Harlingen South on our home court. South has a great tradition the last few years and all we’re worried about is hopefully showing up again on our home court on Friday night.”

Lucio also said the 10-game district season makes getting to 2-1 a bigger deal than it would have been in year’s past.

“Our mindset is to worry about every game that’s ahead of us,” he said. “Every Tuesday and Friday we’re preaching that it’s a district championship game and we have to attack it that way. That’s the only game that matters especially in this rapid type of season that’s new for us.”

The Hawks also come feeling somewhat pressured at 1-1 after falling to Harlingen High 42-36 on Tuesday night.
