The Brossart Mustangs improved to 2-1 on the young
season with a 46-43 homestanding win over NKAC Division
II rival Lloyd Memorial on Wednesday night.
It didn't come easy.
Brossart trailed early 4-0 and didn't take the lead in the
contest until the 1:48 mark in the first quarter when we
poked a nose in front 12-11 and extended the lead to 15-11
after eight minutes. The Mustangs connected on three
3-point goals in the first period, which would be their sum
total in that category for the ballgame.
The second quarter would see the Stangs run out to a six
point lead, 21-15 and then made it seven at 25-18 and took a
four point lead, 27-23, to the locker room at halftime.
Four of the Mustangs' twelve second quarter points were
from our "PNC Player of the Game" Drew Kremer, who
had a breakout game, scoring a career high total of 13
points on the night.
Brossart looked like we were on the verge of breaking the
game open out of the locker room, opening up an eight point
lead, our largest of the night at 33-25, but it would be
short-lived as the Juggs cut the Mustangs lead to two at
33-31. The third quarter ended with the Stangs on top
Lloyd threatened several times in the fourth quarter cutting
the Mustangs lead to 37-36, 42-40 and drew to within a
point at 44-43 with 1:43 to play in the game.
Joey Webb was fouled with 10.6 seconds remaining in the
game and hit two ice water blue-chip free-throws to push
the Mustang advantage to three, and when Jacob Rieger
reeled in the final Juggernaut field goal attempt of the night,
the Erlanger Lloyd ball went on the wall - 46-43.
Drew Kremer and Jacob Rieger shared scoring honors with
13 each, and Rieger probably recorded a double-double,
pulling in a boatload of rebounds.
The Mustangs improve to 2-1 on the season heading into
the Friday night Crosstown Classic vs Campbell County at
the Campbell County Middle School.
