Neeeded To Beat The Previously

Luke Rebholz Returned From The DL To Lead The Mustangs With 17
Freshmen Spot Rebs An 18-2 Cushion And Then Make A Game Of It
For most of the members of the Brossart Mustangs Junior Varsity Team, they were
playing their seventh game in the 2005-06 campaign last night at Boone County, but
for Junior Luke Rebholz, who had looked so forward to being an integral part of this
team this year before severely spraining his ankle on the Monday before the start of
the season - it was opening night.
Since his injury Luke has spent most of his days rehabbing the ankle for the day
when he would once again join his teammates in competition on the hardwood. That
time came last night in Florence against the unbeaten Boone County Rebels.
He couldn't have rejoined his team at a more opportune time, as it took the Mustangs
JVs double-overtime to overcome Boone County as Rebholz assumed his position as
their go-to shooter, leading the Stangs in the scoring column with a 17 point
performance including six field-goals of which two were of the three point variety.
The Mustangs and Rebels slugged it out to a 5-2 Mustang advantage after the first
period but saw the Rebs take a 14-13 lead at intermission. Brossart fell behind 13-21
with 4:01 to play in the third quarter but then battled back to make it a 24-26 defecit
at the end of the third period. The Mustangs tied the contest at 28 at the 4:41 mark
in the fourth period and were tied again at 30 each and then 32 apiece with 2:38 to
play in the game.
|Freshmen Mustangs Battle Back From 18-2 First Period Deficit To Cut
Rebel Lead to Two Before Dropping A 45-38 Decision
The Brossart Freshmen were totally dominated by the Boone County Rebels in the first period last night falling behind 18-2,
before outscoring the home team 14-4 in a half of two momentum swings resulting in a 22-16 Rebel lead at halftime.
Momentum remained in a green uniform in the early minutes of the second half as the Mustangs outscored the Rebs 4-0 to make
it a 20-22 contest with just over four minutes to play in the third quarter. Boone County recovered to outscore the Stangs 9-7 in
the remainder of the period to make it a 31-27 ballgame with the hometeam on top. The Mustangs would cut the Rebel lead to
36-39 with :37 to play in the game, before Boone County hit six consecutive free-throws to preserve the victory.
The Mustangs will attempt to get back in the win column tonight when they travel to Erlanger to take on the Lloyd Memorial
