• Down by 17 points, Muleshoe staged a dramatic fourth-quarter comeback Friday night to stun Sonora 71-58 in a Texas Class 2A area round game at Midland Lee H.S.
The Mules (20-14) outscored the Broncos 34-4 in the final period, getting five 3-pointers from four players and scoring from seven players altogether.
“It was one of the wildest games I’ve seen,” Mules coach Matt Mason said. “We just dominated the fourth quarter. It seemed like we couldn’t miss and they couldn’t score.”
Muleshoe returns to action with a 6:30 p.m. (CST) regional quarterfinal game Monday at Levelland High School against Idalou, which eliminated Friona on Friday night.
Junior forward Cooper Washington led four Mules in double figures with 20 points. Mason said he “kept us in striking range (early) with his offensive rebounds.”
Zack Toscano added 13 points, Tyson Turnbow 12 and Nick Hurtado 11. Turnbow and Hurtado each had three of the Mules nine 3-pointers.

“We played real good defense,” Steers coach Shane Perkins said. “We had a bad third quarter and turned the ball over a lot , but we got refocused in the fourth quarter and made the plays when we needed to.”
Senior center Octavio Chavez scored 12 points and junior guard Landry Actkinson added 10 for the Steers.
