Mustangs Back on Track

Matt Hendershot – Sports Editor

In the Mustangs’ last game before the holiday season, the Boys Basketball team gifted the fans with a blowout win 77-46. After a 3 game losing skid the Mustangs needed this win to regain confidence heading into winter break.

The game started very slow for both sides. Both teams were missing shots and turning the ball over consistently. But that would not continue as the Mustangs shot lights out and scored 22 points in the second quarter. The score at halftime was 35-19 in favor of your Mustangs. The halftime break did not slow this team down as they went on to score 28 points in the third quarter to increase their lead to 27. The game slowed down scoring-wise at this point and both teams cleared their benches in the 4th quarter. Brandon Held led the scoring with 18 points.

Losing 3 games in a row is never a good sign for a team but last night the Mustangs showed their potential: when they play as a team, they are dangerous. A 3-3 record is a good record to have going into the break but this team needs to remain consistent and play their best every game.
