The Abilene High Eagles picked up their first district win of the season with a victory over Midland High on Saturday night.

The game would be tight for the most part in the first half with both teams entering the locker room with 36 points.

Midland High would be first to get on the board and grab the lead in the second half, but the Eagles would respond.

A drive and layup by Chris Caster would put tie the game. Then the Eagles would work it around to find Calvin McGee in the corner to give Abilene High the lead with a three-pointer.

They would continue to pile it on with a pick-and-roll between Darian Bradfor and Diamond Gary to extend the Eagle lead.

From there they would cruise to a 78-60 win, and pick up the elusive first district victory.
