Lions roar back by a divine hand

Ignacio’s only senior, Austin Haire, scored a three-point play to cap a 20-2 third-quarter run by the Bobcats, but the Lutheran Lions roared back to end Haire’s high school career on a 52-46 loss in the regional championship Saturday at Durango High School.
Kelton Richmond “pounded the boards” – IHS head coach Chris Valdez said – and kicked off the Bobcats’ 20-2 third-quarter run with three layups. Richmond finished with a team-high 15 points.
Justin Carver tried to find some room in between Lutheran’s towering defenders. Every one of the Lions’ boys basketball players top 6-feet, with five listed at 6-4 or taller. “They’re huge; they’re monsters,” IHS head coach Chris Valdez said.
Clayton Jefferson didn’t have the hot hand Saturday. He tried and tried to boost the Bobcats with 3-pointers, but none of them would fall. Eventually, Ignacio fell 52-46 to Lutheran in the Class 2A Region 3 championship.
IHS head coach Chris Valdez and the Ignacio Bobcats had plenty to cheer about until a 16-0 Lutheran run to start the fourth quarter wiped out their lead and more. The Bobcats lost 52-46.
