Throws To Save The Day For The Mustangs
The Brossart Mustangs almost had the NCC
Thoroughbreds rain all over their All "A" State
Championship parade, or in this case would
have put a damper on the Brossart Mustangs
reception/celebration to take place Sunday
afternoon.
One year ago, 2006 "A" State Champ
Bardstown took a 14 point loss to 10-17
Nelson County in their return engagement to
regular season play.  Our Mustangs, who were
defeated by Bardstown in the 2006
Semi-Finals, came home and lost our next six
games.
Assuming that the weeklong break would
benefit the Mustang recovery, and the fact that
our senior-laden ballclub practiced superbly
over the past two days, we expected our
Mustangs to perform business as usual.
 At the onset it appeared that the
aforementioned scenerio would play out, as
the Breds, playing without the services of
Zach Kiernan, fell behind early 12-6 after a
period and 19-9 with 4:34 remaining in the
second quarter.
It was then that momentum climbed into a
blue uniform and the Thoroughbreds went on
a 15-2 run, bringing our Mustangs down to
earth and sending us to the locker room
deadlocked at 24 at the half.
Brossart managed to labor out to a shortlived
33-27 lead late in the third quarter, but again
the Breds battled back to within two at 36-34
with eight minutes left to play.
It was Newcath who established a lead 41-36
with 5:04 to go in the game, and when Kyle
Kramer uncorked a 3 ball that hit dead-center
at the same time that the Mustangs bench
signaled a time-out nullifying the Kramer
bomb, it demonstrated that Murphy's Law was
working against us at full force.
Blue-Chipper Jimmy Uebel hit a "3" in the
same possession as the ill-fated time-out in
blue-chip time, and then followed that up with
two huge free-throws rallying the Mustangs to
a 46-45 lead that would hold up, improving the
Mustangs record to 22-3 on the season and
4-0 in the NKAC Division II race.
The Mustangs were led by Uebel with fourteen
points, twelve of which came in the second
half and eight in the decisive fourth quarter.  
Luke Rebholz came from off the bench to nail
two three-point goals and finish the night with
eleven points.  Troy Cooper was the third
Mustang finishing in double figures with ten.  
"Battleship" Bryan Niemeyer just missed
scoring double figures, hitting on nine for the
night.

BOX SCORE:  Kidney 1-0-0/0-2,
    Rebholz 0-2-5/6-11, Niemeyer 3-1-0/2-9
    Uebel 3-1-5/9-14, Cooper 4-0-2/4-10

Total Mustangs:  11-4-12/21-46   22-3   4-0
Total Breds:        10-5-10/16-45      
Brossart dispatched the NCC JVs in handy
fashion, the night after the Breds defeated
CovCath in Park Hills less than twenty-four
hours prior.
Brian Wolfer hit three consecutive up and
under baskets enroute to a ten point night,
leading eight Mustang scorers.    Brossart led
11-8, 23-15, 32-19, and 37-22.
The Mustangs' defense held the Breds to four
points in the third quarter and three points in
the final period.
The JV Mustangs improve to 12-5 on the
season and 4-0 in the NKAC Division II race.

Box Score:  Patterson 1-1-0/0-5,
   Webb 0-0-2/2-2, Ridder 2-0-0/0-4,
   Rieger 1-1-1/2-6, Wolfer 4-0-2/2-8,
   Barth 1-0-0/0-2, Weyman 2-0-0/0-4

Total Mustangs:  12-2-5/6-37    12-5    4-0
