The game before their game with Logan, San Jon came from over 20 behind to beat House, so most of the San Jon faithful in the stands had hopes until the very end of the game, that there was always a chance the Coyotes could come back and take the higher seeded Longhorns. But apparently the seeding was done for a reason and Logan led throughout the Wednesday evening contest as they ended the game winning 71-47.
Logan jumped out to a quick lead in the early minutes of the game but it was clear that it was not a lead that was going to stay if the Longhorns did not defend it, because the Coyotes of San Jon were determined to not let the Logan team get out of reach of another of the Coyote’s patented comebacks. But the comeback was not to be as Logan just stretched their lead further and further. At the end of the first half, Logan was up by 13 which in the case of the House game was the proverbial drop in the bucket. It was to prove something more Wednesday against the Longhorns, however.
The lead of the Longhorns was up to 20 at the end of the third quarter with the San Jon Coyotes unable to manifest any of the magic they showed earlier in the week. The score stood 53-33 and most San Jon fans in the Logan gymnasium had hopes but they proved futile hopes as the Logan squad simply proved too much for the Coyotes stretching lead even more. and ending the game 71-47.
While Jarrod Archuleta hit for 12, Kirk Burns and Jake Abercrombe combine for 27 between them in addition, they had more team members backing them up with nine Logan players making the scoring column.
