|St. Patrick Wins Round Two 64-52
As Potential Third Match
In 10th Region "A" Semis Looms
Congratulations To Nick Anderson On Scoring His 1,000th Point
|St. Patrick's Chris Owen (22) and Nick Anderson (15) tag teamed our Mustangs for 37 points, including
Anderson's 1,000th career point, enroute to winning their second game in as many meetings with our guys.
St. Pat's prevailed 65-64 back in the Bracken County Holiday Classic.
Tonight in the "Cloverdome" St. Patrick jumped out to a 12-7 first quarter lead, but Brossart battled back to
tie it up at 20 with 3:23 to play in the half. The score was again tied at 22, and then at 26, before the
homestanding Saints managed a two-point 29-27 advantage at halftime.
The third quarter was more of the same as the two teams experienced two ties and five consecutive lead
changes before St. Pat's broke open a 35-35 tie at the 4:40 mark and expanded their lead to 44-38 heading
into the fourth quarter. The Saints were able to maintain that margain throughout the final stanza, as Nick
Anderson scored 9 of his 15 points, to record their 14th win of the season, against 5 losses. Greg Stortz and
Jacob Rieger led the Mustangs assault with 13 points apiece, and Drew Kremer contributed 8 in the losing
effort. Both teams connected on 21 field-goals, but St. Pats went to the free-throw line 27 times (18/27)
compared to our 12 (8/12) and won the war on the boards nearly 2 to 1. Brossart forced 21 turnovers while
our Mustangs spit the ball up on 11 occasions.
The two teams could conceivably meet next week in the 10th Region All "A" Semi-Finals on Friday IF St.
Pats can survive Deming in the play-in game on Monday and beat Augusta on Wednesday, and if Brossart
can take care of business against Paris on Wednesday. All 10th Region "A" games are played at Deming
