Smithson Valley sophomore Zayden High, pictured competing versus Wagner, scored a combined 49 points in the Rangers’ two games on Saturday.

SCHERTZ — The Rangers’ goal of booking a second straight trip to the Class 6A postseason came up just shy on Saturday following an impromptu doubleheader.

Smithson Valley (13-11, 7-7) defeated eventual District 27-6A champion Judson 79-70 to force a fourth-place tiebreaker game against South San later that evening at Clemens High School. However, in that contest, the Bobcats upended the Rangers 56-51 to grab the district’s final postseason berth.
