McAllen Memorial outscored McHi in every quarter – including 18-7 in the fourth – and went on to easily defeat the crosstown Bulldogs 57-36 Tuesday night in an important District 30-6A game.
The win was the Mustangs’ fifth in a row and puts them smack dab in the middle of the race to clinch a playoff spot after a slow start.
Chris Flores lead a trio of Mustangs in double figures by scoring 16 points, including three treys. Super junior Josh Sanchez added 12 points as did Chris Melendez.
McAllen, Rowe, La Joya, Memorial and La Joya Palmview are still vying for four playoff spots with three games to play.
