It’s going to take a little bit more than some spray paint to stop the Dos Pueblos Chargers.
And Friday night, DP proved just that.
Friday night’s basketball game between Dos Pueblos and San Marcos was about more than just another victory. Friday night’s game was about making a statement.
The Thursday night prior to the game, DP’s campus was vandalized with blue and red spray paint and although the vandals remain unknown, it didn’t matter to the Chargers.
DP showed up ready to play to take their retaliation to the court and finished on top of the Royals with the final score of 48-31.
The Chargers took the lead from the jump ball as senior Gerry Perez scored six points in the first quarter and helped DP finish the quarter with lead, 15-7.
The second quarter continued with the Charger dominance as the lead remained in the hands of Dos Pueblos. The half ended with the Chargers up, 21-15.
Despite the red wave of the Royals’ student-fans, the Chargers returned to the second half with just as must strength as the first half.
The Chargers scored another 13 points opposed to the Royal’s seven points in the third quarter and finished up the third with a score of 34- 22.
DP took home the win against the Royals as they finished up the final quarter with a score of 48-31. The win left the Chargers with a record of 6-4 and pride in seeing that a little vandalism can’t stop the Hicktown pride and the Charger “Golden state of mind.”
