Last Tuesday, the Mustangs opened up District 27-3A play vs. Poteet at home. The Mustangs and Aggies played a back and forth game throughout the first quarter before the Mustangs took a 14-10 lead. The Aggies continued to battle and eventually tied the game at 17-17 before the Mustangs finished the 2nd quarter on a 17-2 run as they took a 15 point lead into halftime. In the 2nd half, the Aggies would come storming back as they outscored the Mustangs 36-25. The Aggies were able to cut it to 2 on two separate occasions within the last 19 seconds but the Mustangs were able to hang on as they hit some key free throws down the stretch to secure a 59-55 win to start off district play. “I was proud of the way we played at times but we were very fortunate to come away with a win against a really good Poteet team. We have to be better at finishing games and playing from ahead. We got a little too comfortable in the 2nd half and that gave Poteet an opportunity to come back.”
