The Unicorns snapped a two-game slide to begin District 27-6A competition with a crucial 59-49 victory Tuesday night at home against Steele.

New Braunfels (13-3, 1-2) successfully defended its home floor against the marauding Knights and used a 14-5 run during the second quarter to build a 30-19 edge by halftime. Head coach David Brawner’s team fended off Steele (8-6, 2-1) down the stretch to break through for its first league win of the 2020-21 season.
