Brossart - Scott
37th District Tournament
February 5, 2009
Mustang  Freshmen Clear First Hurdle By Defeating Scott 58-33
In Thursday Opening Round Semi-Finals
Will Face Campbell County In Championship Game On Tuesday Evening at 5:30pm
The Brossart Mustang Freshmen advanced to the
championship game of the 37th District Freshmen
Tournament on the merits of a 58-33 victory over
third-seeded Scott Eagles on Thursday night in the
SyDome.
The Eagles came to Alexandria with a game plan, and
that was to take it to the Mustangs defense and force the
issue.  For the best part of the first half, they were quite
successful, as the Stangs were whistled for 10 fouls in the
first six minutes, giving the Eagles double-bonus
advantage for the entire second period.
The Mustangs led 6-5 with 3:49 to play in the first
quarter, and then went on a 7-0 run to gain a 13-5 lead
with :38 to play in the period.  The lead would be
short-lived as the Eagles went on a 5-0 run of their own,
and trailed by only three, 13-10 at the end of the
quarter.  Matt Kramer was responsible for 6 of the
Mustangs 13 first period points.

During the first half of the second quarter the Mustangs
and Eagles matched baskets, as the Mustangs led 19-17
with 2:08 to go in the half.  Austin Hinkel picked up up
where Kramer left off in the first quarter, by scoring three
second quarter field-goals propelling the Stangs to a 16
point quarter as the guys in green ran out to a 29-19 lead
at intermission.
The Mustangs blew the game open in the third quarter as
the Mustangs piled 15 points onto the board, while
holding the Eagles to only 6 points, as the lead inflated to
44-25.
Brossart finished out the game by adding another 14
point quarter and allowing the Eagles 8, to account for
the final score of 58-33.
There were many great individual performances on the
night.  Matt Kramer is really catching on to being an
effective post-player, leading all scorers with a 13 point
performance, even after having one taken away on a
bogus travelling call.  Austin Hinkel played with poise on
both ends of the floor, netting 6 points for the contest,
while pulling down a myriad of rebounds, and blocking
several Eagle field-goal attempts.  Trevor Bezold executed
a circus-act steal, pass to himself, and layup that was
worthy of YouTube.  Bezold finished his night's work
with 10 points on the board, and a passel of assists.  Zach
Fardo was his usual consistent self, putting 9 hard-earned
points on the board while directing the Mustangs
offense.  Joe Jennings finished on three field goal attemps
for six points late in the game.  Corey Kramer and Jared
Hahn didn't score a point - but they didn't have to, as
both executed their ball-handling and defense, and assist
duties quite well.   Logan Kramer delivered the Mustangs'
only 3 point goal, and added two field-goals back in the
first quarter when the game was still very much being
contested.  For their extraordinary efforts, Matt Kramer
and Trevor Bezold were named the Alexandria Wal-Mart
Subway - Players of the Game.
