The "Unproven - Under Construction" Brossart
Mustangs passed the Silver Grove test in handy fashion
overwhelming the Big Trains 74-42 on opening night.
The two teams battled back and forth in the opening
minutes of the game and with 3:27 to play in the first
period the two teams were knotted at 7.
It wouldn't be until only 1:18 remained in the half until
the Silver Grove Big Trains would add points to their
tally.  Meanwhile the Brossart Mustangs had put up 25
points, opening up a 32-7 lead - Game, Set, Match,
Credit the things that made the teams that preceeded
them successful, for their success again last night
against the Big Trains  -  Intensive defense, precision
execution on offense, and superior shot selection add up
to wins, and the Mustangs varsity have put their first
ball on the wall.
Brossart had a very balanced scoring attack, putting up
13, 21, 21, and 19 points per quarter,  We were led on
the night by our PNC Player of the Game, sophomore  
Jacob Rieger, who demonstrated why he will be the
man depended upon to put the big numbers on the
board for the Stangs this season by leading the
Mustangs with 15 points in three and a half periods of
playing time.  Sophomore counterpart J-Army (Jordan
Armstrong), performed like a seasoned veteran
collecting double figures with 11 points and Mitch
Patterson and Joey Webb adding 9 each.
Steven Pelle, doing his best Corey Pelle imitation,
led all scorers with 18 points for the Trains, with Jeff
Morris putting up 12 points, all in the second half.
The Mustangs will practice on Wednesday and be back
to the hoops wars on Thursday night here in the
SyDome, when St. Henry comes to call for a NKAC
Division II contest.
Coach Bob Rowe's JV Mustangs set the tone for the
evening dismantling their Silver Grove counterparts
48-23 in the "6 O'Clock varsity game."
The JVs also presented a balanced scoring attack with
11 of the 13 players on the roster putting ink in the
scoreboard.  Joey Webb led the Stang JVs with 10
points, including a pair of 3's, while Brian Wolfer
contributed 8, and freshman Travis Norton connecting
on a pair of long range 3 point bombs for a total of 6
