Mustangs Shatter
Lee County's Dream
Advance To Quarterfinals
With 68-49 Win
Cooper and Mutsch Combine For 35 Points,
16 Rebounds
The Mustangs laid a little run, gun, throw it into the post,
and have fun on the Lee County Bobcats, the hopes of the
14th Region, as Mustang big men Troy Cooper and Nathan
Mutsch combined for 35 points and 16 rebounds.  Cooper
was named the game's MVP, but Mutsch could have well
shared the honor.
Early on it looked like we might blow the game open quickly
as the Mustangs established a 9-0 lead before the fans were
settled into their seats, but the Lee County Bobcats did not
come this far by rolling over and playing dead.  By the 2:41
point in the first quarter the Cats had clawed their way back
into it 13-10, before the Stangs re-established their
supremecy and sprinted off to a 21-12 lead at the end of one.
The Mustangs stalled out in the second period, going over
three minutes without a score allowing the Cats to close to
23-16 before awakening with a 7-3 run to send the Stangs
to the locker room on top 30-19.
Mustangs big men Mutsch and Cooper dominated play in a
30 point Mustang third quarter, (did Jimmy Uebel say that
these aren't your father's Mustangs???) putting 19 of those
30 on the board themselves, blowing the game open at
60-36 and from that point on it was only a matter of how
Mutsch finished the night with 17 points and 8 boards
(seemed like more) and Cooper put up 18 points and pulled
down 8 rebounds.  Jimmy Uebel was the third Mustang
double-figure scorer with 15 as the Mustangs completed the
fourth step in their seven step program to win the 2006
Touchstone Energy All "A" State Championship.
The Mustangs will face the Barbourville Tigers, 68-56
wiinners over Russellville, tonight in the late shift game
scheduled to go at 9:30pm, with a more realistic start time
expected to be slightly after 10pm. The Tigers are riding a
12 game win streak.
