Mustangs Win On Justin Night - Beat Birds 55-53
Freshmen Make It Two For The Stangs With 44-32 Victory
Bluebirds Win The JV Game 42-32
What a difference a week makes!!!
I've long been a proponent that you are only as good as your last game,
and last week we walked out of the Campbell County Middle School
stinging big time from a thumping by the Camels, and here a week later, we
upset Highlands, one of the very top teams in the 9th Region, obtaining an
early season signature win.
This was a very special night in the annals of Brossart Mustangs basketball
history - a night when we retired the Number 35 jersey of Justin Seiter.
Brossart was out of the gate quickly as Joey Webb dropped a 3-point
bomb to open the scoring, which was quickly matched by a bomb by Zach
Lother and that was the last time the game would be tied until the second
half.  The Mustangs led 14-11 after 8 minutes of play.
Jacob Rieger scored four field-goals in the first quarter before falling
victim to foul trouble.  Justin Morscher did a great job spelling Jake,
nailing a pair of 3s and a free-throw to preserve the Mustang lead at the
half of 29-27.
Highlands made several runs in the second half.  They tied the game out of
the locker room at 29, but the Mustangs were up to the task and re-opened
the lead to 7.  Each time the Stangs would threaten to put some distance
between themselves and the Birds, junior Zach Lother would deliver a
3-point goal to keep his team right in the mix.  After leading 40-38 after
three periods, with about three minutes to play in the game, the Birds put a
nose in front, but the Mustangs were up to the task and went on to prevail
With the Mustangs on top 54-51, Brian Wolfer, the hero of last night's
Calvary win, hit the second of two free-throws to give the Mustangs a two
possession lead with 7.8 seconds to play.  A conceded layup to Stephen
Kowolonek finished out the scoring on the night, and the Mustangs put
the Highlands ball on the wall and go 1-0 in the NKAC Divison II
conference race.
The Mustangs were led on the scoreboard by Joey Webb with 16 points, 12
of which came from beyond the arc.  Jacob Rieger accomplished the
double-double despite being saddled with foul trouble, and then being
platooned in the second half, finishing the night with 14 points.
Justin Morscher tacked on 9 points on the night, and Drew Kremer drew
rave reviews for his intensity level from his coach in his post-game
Little Zach Lother and BIG Tyler Grubbs led the Highlands Bluebirds in
the scoring column with 12 points apiece.
Brossart improves to 4-1 on the season and the Bluebirds fall to 4-2 after
falling to both Campbell County Catholics on back-to-back nights.
