One week after the La Grange girls knocked Stafford from the playoffs, their boys’ team got revenge.

The Stafford boys beat La Grange 42-39 Monday in Katy to end a stellar season for the Leps, who finished with a 19-10 overall record.

“We’ve got to get over this hump,” said La Grange head coach David Cooper, whose team has lost in the first round of the playoffs each of the last two seasons. La Grange has not won a boys basketball playoff game since 2014. “We’re happy to get in the playoffs, but we’ve got to win that first game.”

The Leps nearly pulled off an epic comeback Monday. In a game between two teams that really played strong defense, Stafford went into halftime up 17-16.

In a nightmarish third quarter Stafford outscored La Grange 12-2 to take a 29-18 lead.
