Pendleton County Prevails 59-54 In
Second of What Is Hopefully A
Three Game Series
Tyler Mains Explodes For Career High 32 Points
The Mustangs and Pendleton County Wildcats went toe
to toe before a full-house in the SyDome on Thursday
Our Mustangs led 17-16 after a very fast paced first
period, but fell victim to Tyler Mains and the Cats in the
second period, being outscored 21-14, which was the
difference in the game, as Mains put up 11 points as part
of  a 20 point first half, sending the Mustangs to the
locker-room down 31-37.
The pace of the second half was more to the Mustangs'
liking as each team put up 10 points in the 3rd period, but
the Cats lead remained six.  The Stangs fell behind nine
points at 50-41 just seconds into the 4th quarter as Kane
Belcher completed a three point play the old fashion way,
but the Mustangs rallied to cut the Cats lead to 49-52,
52-54 and then Jimmy Uebel hit a major blue-chip
baseline basket cutting that lead to a point at 54-55 with
:29 to play but that was as close as we would come.  
Mains, who had reaped havoc on us all night obliged us
by missing two key free-throws, but on both occasions
the Cats were able to control the rebound and on the
second one, it appeared that the Mustangs had secured
the ball, when it squirted away right into the hands of
Terry Davis who converted the layup, driving a dagger
through the hearts of the Mustangs and putting the Cats
on top 2-0 on the season series.  Hopefully, the next
matchup will take place in the finals of the 10th Region
Tournament on the second Saturday in March.
Troy Cooper led the Mustangs with 15 points, Jimmy
Uebel produced 14, Kyle Lubbers was again a major
factor causing the Pendleton County big men some
problems and contributed 9 points.  Nathan Mutsch put
up 6 points and pulled down a myriad of rebounds, while
the guard tandem of Brad Seiter and Josh Kidney hit for 5
points apiece.
The Cats managed only four players in the scoring
column led by Tyler Mains' career high scoring barrage
of 32 points.  HurriKane Belcher put up 12 points, Patrick
Elliot 11, and Terry Davis 4.  Auspicious by his absence
in the scoring column was Jon Elrod who scored 16 in
the fourth period in our last encounter with the Cats back
in the MCIT.  
The Pendleton County victory in the SyDome breaks a
sixteen game home win streak dating back to February
25th of 2003 when the Mustangs were defeated by the
then All "A" State Champions - St. Henry.
