(Wimberley) - Navarro was unable to knock off District 27-4A champion Wimberley Friday night in a 67-50 road loss to the Texans, but with Veterans Memorial's loss to La Vernia, the Panthers are still tied for fourth place in the district standings with a single game left on the schedule.

Navarro (10-16) and Veterans Memorial are both 3-6 in district play, and they split their head-to-head meetings, so if they remain tied after the regular season concludes, the teams would have to play a tiebreak game to determine the fourth and final playoff seed.

The Panthers condlude the regular season against a Gonzales team that hasn't won a district game, while Veterans Memorial closes against playoff-bound Austin-Eastside Memorial.

Navarro senior Will Eveld poured in 22 points to go with nine rebounds and three steals against Wimberley. Eveld shot 10-20 overall and 2-7 from three-point range.

Mason McCaig also reached double figures, netting 17 points on 6-8 shooting from the floor and 5-9 accuracy at the free throw line. Overall, the Panthers hit just 50 percent of their foul shots, finishing 11-22.

Kimble Harrison chipped in with five points and nine rebounds, Daniel Pina totaled four points, and Rosendo Cuevas had two.

Navarro led 16-13 at the end of the first quarter, but Wimberley used a 29-15 run in the second period to take a 42-31 lead into halftime. The Texans outdistanced the Panthers 15-6 in the third quarter, stretching the cushion to 57-37 heading into the fourth period.

The Panthers' regular season finale against Gonzales is Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. at the Navarro Events Center in Geronimo.
