|Ghosts Of The Past Go Quietly Into The Night As '07-'08 Mustangs
Vanquish Demons That Have Haunted Predecessors
Double Up On Homestanding Wildcats 58-29
Freshmen Put Second Ball On Wall 45-28
JVs Fail To Duplicate Campbell County Heroics
Allow Wildcats To Overcome a 31-25 Third Quarter Mustang
Lead and Fall 38-36
Our 07-08 Mustangs earned a distinction tonight in Falmouth that hadn't
been accomplished by a Mustangs team since December 5th, 2003 and
hadn't been duplicated in the Pendleton County facility since December 6th,
2002, doubling up on the Wildcats 58-29 to improve to 3-2 on the season.
Tonight the Mustangs defense was the superior force, allowing the
homestanding Cats only 4 points in the first period, as the Mustangs ran out
to a 11-4 lead and never looked back.
Brossart won each quarter 11-4, 12-9, 14-7, and 21-9 as 11 players put ink
in the scoreboard and the Pendleton County ball on the wall.
Drew Kremer led the Stangs with 13 points on the night, followed by Brian
Wolfer, who earned his first start of the season tonight and acquitted
himself quite well on both ends of the floor, with 8 points, joined by his big
man counterpart Greg Stortz who also put up 8 points.
Fifty-eight points on the board is an encouraging sign, seeing that the
team's leading scorer Jacob Rieger was a non-factor in the game, plagued
by foul-trouble, and finishing the night with 3 points. Brossart outdistanced the Cats, who started three
seniors, 24 to 11 in the field goal department with the Mustangs cashing in on three from 3-point land. PC
failed to connect on a 3-point goal. Both teams hit 7 shots from the charity stripe. Pendleton County's
Doug Lambert led all scorers with 14 points.
Congratulations to Sean Crowley, who scored his first varsity career points in this game.
Brossart will now prepare for their appearance in the Leota Massey Showcase on Saturday, where we will
take on the host Deming Devils at 6pm.
This game could serve as an early season prep race as we look ahead to the late-January 10th Region All
"A" Classic. St. Patrick and Deming are presently considered front runners in early season opinion polls.

Bob Rowe's JV squad, without the services of Brian Wolfer from the onset, battled the Pendleton County
Wildcats to a 24-21 halftime advantage and then opened a 31-26 lead heading into the fourth quarter after
Joey Webb drained a three point goal just ahead of the buzzer signaling the end of the 3rd quarter.
Pendleton County managed to battle back to knot the score at 34 with only
3:07 to play in the game, when Coach Rowe lost the services of Webb and
Justin Morscher, and was left to fend off the oncoming Cats with much the
same lineup that prevailed under similar circumstances on Friday night vs
This time the Stangs were not quite as fortunate, falling behind 38-36 with
just :21 to play in the game.
Freshman Travis Norton had the shot airbourne that would have clutched
victory from the jaws of defeat, but saw his shot miss the target giving the
Wildcats their only win on the night.
Sophomore Allen Kramer turned in another top performance leading the
JV Stangs with 8 points on the night.
Stevie Popovich, Joey Webb, and Justin Morscher each contributed 6 points
The 3-2 JVs will return home for a Thursday night homestanding encounter with the Walton-Verona
Bearcats in the second half of a Freshmen-JV doubleheader scheduled to be broadcast live via this website
starting at 5:50pm.
Box Score: BB: Popovich 0-0-6/8-6, Webb 0-2-0/3-6, Morscher 1-0-4/6-6, Kramer 2-0-4/4-8, Norton 1-1-0/1-5,

Schack with 8 points apiece. Chad Verst and
