|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
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.
