Girls Varsity Basketball · Tem-Cats hold on for win

One streak ended and another continued Friday afternoon inside Wildcat Gym, where the Temple boys and girls basketball teams played the second of four straight home District 12-6A doubleheaders.

The Tem-Cats manufactured a double-digit cushion by halftime then fended off the Copperas Cove Lady Dawgs down the stretch for a 49-43 victory that snapped a three-game league slide.

Back on its home floor two days following a nine-point setback to Hewitt Midway, Temple on Friday never trailed after Coryn Grovey’s 3-pointer made it 4-3 early in the first quarter, held a 12-point advantage at halftime and took a 10-point cushion into the fourth, when the Tem-Cats (8-12, 3-5) delivered in crunch time with the Lady Dawgs nipping at their heels.
