Mustangs Fight Off Stubborn
Silver Grove To Earn Trip To
10th Region Big Dance
Will Face Scott In 37th Finals
Silver Grove proved a very worthy adversary, leaving
everything they had on the floor of the Campbell County
Middle School as the Brossart Mustang had to earn their
way into the 37th District Championship Game on Friday
night and more importantly a berth in next week's 10th
Region Tournament on the Grand Stage of the Mason
County Fieldhouse.

Early on the game seemed to mirror the contest played
here back in late Janaury in the 10th Region "A" Semis
when the Mustangs prevailed 67-38.  Again last night the
Trains ran out to an early lead of 11-5, before the
Mustangs mounted a rally to take the lead 17-16 at the
start of the second period which became a 28-20 bulge by
halftime as Adam Franzen delivered three long range goals
from beyond the arc to spearhead the Mustang rally.  
Brossart outscored the Trains 14-4 in the second period..

When the Mustangs pushed out to a 35-20 just into the
second half it appeared that the result would be much the
same as the last time out - Not To Be!
Silver Grove rose to the occasion and began chipping
away into the Mustang lead which had shrunk to six at the
end of the third period, 44-38.  Corey and Justin Pelle
accounted for all 18 of the Big Trains points in the 3rd

The Big Trains would conjure up flashbacks of a similar
event which took place in this same venue two years back
when they cut the Mustangs lead to two at 44-42 and
were in possession of the basketball.  The Mustangs
dodged that Big Train bullet and Kyle Lubbers scored a
field goal and two ensuing free-throws to turn back the
Trains and re-establish a 48-42 six point Mustang lead that
we would not relinquish from that point.

This game would have a happy ending as the Mustangs
were up to the challenge behind a big finale by Kyle
Lubbers who finished some great Jimmy Uebel passes as
the Mustangs defeat the valiant Big Trains 62-52.

We will face Scott on Friday night at 7pm in the finals and
return to the Grand Stage of the Mason County
Fieldhouse next week after a two-year hiatus.
