The Marble Falls Lady Mustangs just had to make it interesting.

Senior Aspen Woerner scored on an inside shot with 1:15 left for the key two points in the team’s 45-39 victory over Seguin Tuesday before a near fullhouse at Max Copeland Gym.

The victory helps solidify second place for the moment for the Lady Mustangs, who are 22-9 overall and 10-2 in District 26-5A. Seguin, which has key games with Tivy and Boerne Champion left, and Dripping Springs, have clinched playoff berths.

In all likelihood Tivy will win the district, Marble Falls earns second and Seguin and Dripping Sprigs will claim the final two spots from the district.

Marble Falls is on the road at Lockhart Friday and a win secures at least second.

To earn the top spot, Marble Falls must beat Lockart and Dripping Springs and have Tivy lose twice.

Tivy has Seguin and Lockhart left on its schedule.

Friday night’s battle in Kerrville was supposed to be a battle with the winner clinching the playoffs with three games left to play. It was a lopsided battle.

The Kerrville Tivy Lady Antlers delivered a few shots to the belly Friday night and came away with a big 55-41 victory over the Lady Mustangs at Tivy High School.

No. 10 state-ranked Tivy now stands in the drivers’ seat to win the District 26-5A crown.

The Lady Mustangs were hoping to take that spot, but now Marble Falls is jockeying for playoff position.

Despite the loss, the Lady Mustangs also clinched with Boerne Champion losing to Dripping Springs on Friday.

The Lady Mustangs are in the playoffs for the first time since 2010-2011.

The four playoff teams from District 26-5A will likely be Tivy, Marble Falls, Seguin and Dripping Springs.
