|Mustang Freshmen Top Dixie Heights 45-36
In One Of Their Top Efforts Of The Season
Corey Hartig 10 Point Effort Earns Him A Seat With The JVs
|If indeed you are only as good as your last game, the Freshmen
Mustangs are a very good team tonight.
In one of their top team efforts of the season the Mustangs defeated
a nice Dixie Heights team 45-36 that was coming off of a recent win
Brossart was brilliant in the first quarter running out to a 13-9 lead,
after having led 11-4. Travis Norton, Dylan Dierig, David Schuler, and
John Schack all put ink in the scorebook in that period.
Dixie Heights closed the gap to tie the game at 19 apiece at halftime,
and the Colonels poked a nose in front 30-29 after three complete
periods of play.
The Mustangs defense limited the visitors to only three field goals in
the final quarter, while connecting on 9 of 14 free-throw attempts
themselves, enroute to outscoring the Colonels 16-6.
|Corey Hartig scored six of his game high 10 points in the fourth
quarter after coming off of the bench to spark his now 5-10 ballclub.
John Schack added 9 points, while Travis Norton and Dylan Dierig
each put up 7 points apiece, with each contributing a 3-Point Goal.
Bran Popham led the Colonels with 10 points. Hartig's performance
earned him a seat on the JV bench for the feature game.
The freshmen Mustangs will get their first meaningful break of the
season, and will spend some quality time on the practice floor in
preparation for the second half of the season.
|Mustang JVs Second Best To JV Colonels 32-28
JVs Show Signs Of Rust After 8 Day Layoff and Four Trips To Brooksville
|While the freshmen Mustangs showed continued improvement in the prelim
game, the JVs looked like a team that hadn't had much practice-time lately or
played a game in eight days and had made four consecutive trips with the varsity
to lend support in the Bracken County Holiday tournament for the past four days.
Dixie Heights ran out to a quick 7-0 lead which resulted in a 12-6 first quarter
lead and doubled it up on the home team by halftime at 20-10.
The Mustang five played a more inspired third quarter, closing the gap to within
four points following a pair of Nick Hanneken free throws at 23-19 with 2:54 to play
|in the stanza outscoring the Colonels 11-7 in the period to make it a 27-21 game
with a period left to play.
Again the Mustangs outscored the Colonels 7-5 in the final period, while holding
them scoreless in the field goal column, but Dixie connected on 5 of 7 free-throw
attempts to hold the home team at bay, and post a 32-28 victory. Josh Raleigh led
all scorers with 12 points for the Red and White Colonels.
Hanneken, Popovich, and Wolfer all led the Stangs with 6 points each as the JV
Mustangs fall to 5-4 on the season.
