Saturday night brought a very tough, undefeated Mullen Lady Broncos team to town. The Broncos came out on fire and held a 19-7 lead after the first quarter. The Mustangs did not give up and had a much better second quarter, cutting the Broncos lead to six, 27-21, at the half.
Both teams came out in the second half with the intent to win the game and it was a battle. After three quarters, Mullen was ahead 41-31. The Mustangs had a very good third quarter defensively, but had trouble scoring, and came up short at the end of the game, 48-38.
Scoring: Sara Marlatt had 15 points, Morgan Sones, 10; Ashton Sasse, 8; Hali Sahr, 3; and Denie Jacobsen had 2. The Lady Mustangs, now 2-3, will be off until the Alliance Holiday Tournament when they will tip off with Bridgeport (4-2) on December 27 at 1 p.m. in Alliance.
