|Freshmen Mustangs Felled
29-23 By District Rival Scott Eagles
December 3, 2007
A combination of Scott's defense and Brossart's
sputtering offense resulted in a 29-23
homestanding district seeding loss to the visiting
Eagles on Monday night.
A pair of three point quarters, the first and the
last, limited our total scoring output and allowed
the Eagles to get a leg up in the post-season
post-season positioning race.
Neither team could get untracked early on as the
Mustangs could generate only one point, until
Dylan Dierig scored a bucket ahead of the buzzer
to make it a 6-3 ballgame after six minutes of
play, with the visitors on top.
A pair of early second period baskets put the
Stangs in charge at 7-6 and the two teams battled
to 14-14 deadlock at intermission.
Dierig scored two of the three Mustang goals in
the third quarter, which was good enough to give
the Stangs a 6-4 edge for the quarter and a 20-18
advantage with six minutes to play.
The similarities stopped their as the Eagles
capitalized on their opportunities from the
free-throw line, hitting on five of nine charity
tosses, enroute to outscoring the home team
11-3 and depriving the home team of their first
win of the season, 29-23.
The Brossart freshmen will attempt to make
amends on Wednesday at 4:30pm when the
Lloyd Memorial Juggernauts come to call for an
NKAC Division II bout.
