28-25
Mustang Freshmen
Improve To 7-1 With
Quality 35-32 Win Over
LexCath
The Freshmen ran out to an early 10-3 first
quarter advantage, which quickly expanded to
15-5, before the Knights fought back to make it a
19-12 game at the half.  The Mustangs increased
their lead to 29-21 after three quarters before
stalling out on offense, saved by two major Jacob
Rieger three point inbound play goals to hold off
the Knights and improve to 7-1 with the 35-32
victory.  Rieger led the Stangs Freshmen with 18
points and Jordan Armstrong put up 10.
Merrily we were rolling along in both ends of the
Thursday night doubleheader Freshman and JV
games when both teams ran into late game bridge
abutments and were lucky to survive.
The JVs followed the script written by the
freshmen opening up a first quarter 11-4 lead after
six mintues and a 23-13 advantage at the half.    
Neither team could mount a serious offensive
attack in the third period with the Mustangs
actually outscoring LexCath 5-2 to build a 28-15
lead.
A Jacob Rieger free throw with 4:10 remaining in
the third quarter would be the end of the scoring
for the Mustangs for the game..  The 28 points
scored at that point would have to stand up against
ten more put up by LexCath to make for an
exciting finish to a bad half of Mustangs JV
basketball
Whatever, a win is a win is a win, and anytime
you can defeat a team from a program such as
Lexington Catholic we will definitely take it no
matter how ugly.
