|Mustangs Bid For
JV MCIT Fourpeat
Falls One Point Short To
|Coach Bob Rowe and his JV Mustangs' bid to win their fourth consecutive JV MCIT Championship came up a point short,
falling 36-35 in the championship game to Montgomery County. A late game three-point goal, a pair of free-throws, and a
basket with 9.1 seconds to go in the came all contributed to the Mustangs demise. The Mustangs got the last shot, a baseline
attempt by Luke Rebholz in heavy traffic that came up short and an Inidan rebound as time expired sent the championship
trophy to somewhere other than Brossart High School for the first time since we have played in the tournament, back in 2002.
The Mustangs certainly had their chances, but 3 of 7 free-throw shooting in the fourth quarter allowed the tribe to overcome a
26-25 third quarter and claim the Mustangs scalp for their own. With the win the Montgomery County JVs remain undefeated
at 10-0 and now add the MCIT Championship to their list of conquests.
In the opening round game, Brossart defeated Campbell County 34-32 behind 11 point efforts by Luke Rebholz and Bryan
Niemeyer. The Camels led at halftime 19-14, but a 16-5 run in the third quarter gave the Mustangs a 31-24 bulge going into the
final period where the Mustangs only put four points on the board but were able to hang on for the two point win.
Campbell County's Jonathan Verst led all scorers with 14 points. The Camels also lost to Mason Co in the consolation game.
