Rylan Creighton goes for two of his 29 points in Elida's 69-42 win Tuesday at Floyd. Defending for Floyd is Brayan Gallegos.

TEXICO - Junior Cade Collins scored a personal-best 18 points and sophomore Jahvon Askew added 14 as Texico's boys blew out to a 19-point halftime advantage en route to a 52-39 District 6-2A home win over Santa Rosa on Tuesday night.

The Wolverines (7-3, 4-1 district) scored just 16 halftime points, but it didn't matter as the Lions (7-4, 1-4) were unable to make significant inroads.

Junior Jarron Sanchez was the top scorer for the Lions with 12 points.

Meantime, the Texico-Santa Rosa girls game, scheduled for Santa Rosa, was canceled due to COVID-19 protocols within the Lady Lions' program.
