Tie Game at 35
Then Watch Hopelessly As Kevin Jacobson
Sinks Gamewinner with 5.1 To Play
The  Mustang and McNick JVs battled to a 5-3 first quarter
with the advantage to Brossart.  When Kyle Kramer hit his
second 3-pointer of the half it was suddenly KK-8 and McNick-3.

Seeing how nothing comes easy in this world, the Rockets
scored the next six points of the game to take a 9-8 lead and
the two teams were on the see-saw through much of the first
half which ended with the Stangs on top16-13 at intermission.

Brossart would extend their lead to 18-13  on a Matthew
Hansman bucket to start the second half but again McNick
would fight back to cut the Stangs lead to 25-24 after three
complete.  The Rockets wolud use the free-throw line to take
advantage of Mustangs personals to open a 33-27 lead 1:39
out, but just as in the LaSalle game, we would battle back to
make it a game, outscoring the visitors 6-0 in the waning
moments with the big blow being a Bryan Niemeyer 3 off of
the steal of a Rocket's inbounds pass.  McNick played for the
final shot but a foul on a steal attempt sent Kevin Jacobson to
the line who missed the first and then sealed the deal by hitting the
second.  The Mustangs continue to play without the services of
Luke Rebholz who is nursing a sprained ankle.

The Mustangs fall to 4-3.

Box Score:  Lloyd  0-0-0/1-0, Ruberg 1-0-0/0-2,

Minis Battle
But Fail To Overcome
Size and Stature of I.H.M. Crusaders
Fall 27-21
The Mini-Mustangs, playing without the services of their St. Joseph Bluejays 8th Grade Team counterparts, came up short to the
Immaculate Heart of Mary Crusaders 27-21.  The J's were tuning up for a key St. Mary Tournament matchup tonight vs Our
Lady of Victory.   I.H.M opened a first quarter 9-7 lead which became a 14-8 halftime lead as the Minis could muster only one
point in the second period.  Hot shooting by John Walerius and Tyler Batche allowed the Mustangs to narrow the Cru lead to
21-18 after three quarters but the Mustang rally fizzled out in the final period as the locals were outscored 6-3 giving the gang
from I.H.M. the victory.

Box Score:  Wolfe 0-0-2/2-2, Kramer 2-0-0/0-4, Walerius 2-1-0/0-7, Steffen 0-0-1/2-1, Batsche 1-1-1/2-6, Kroger 0-0-1/2-1
