Night As Mustang Meet Little Resistance
From Simon Kenton Pioneers
Win 59-40
Jason and Troy Cooper's extended family turned out in
force Saturday night as the Mustangs invaded Simon
Kenton High School.
Tim Cooper, Jason and Troy's dad, has two brothers
who live in Independence and they have sons involved
in athletics for the Pioneers.
They saw cousin Jason score a career high 17 points
(all in the first half), leading the Mustangs to a 59-40
victory that wasn't that close.
While Coop was largely responsible for the Mustangs
35-18 halftime advantage, it was Kevin Smith and Evan
McDole who sealed the deal in the second half as the
Mustangs ran out to a 49-25 bulge before Coach Mike
Code called off the dogs and liberally excercised his
bench for the remainder of the contest.

The Mustangs improve to 15-5 on the season and will
await the arrival of NCC at the SyDome next Saturday
night.

As is their style, the Mustang JVs toyed with the 5-12
Pioneer JVs for a half and then shattered their dreams,
as the Mustangs led by a bucket 10-8 at the quarter
stop, 29-20 at the half and then blew the game open in
the third quarter with a 33-16 point lead after three and
going on to win 48-27 for their 19th conquest of the
season.  Nathan Mutsch (13) and Troy Cooper (10)
combined for 23 points as the Mustangs improve
to 19-0 on the eve of their attempt to capture
Brossart's Third Consecutive JV District Championship
and win an unprecedented 20 consecutive games with
no defeats.
