With no tournaments this season due to COVID restrictions, the Mustangs hosted an unusual Saturday morning game this past week as Devine made the short trip to Natalia. The Mustangs were looking to rebound after a tough shooting night on Friday but things did not come easy. The 1st quarter was a quarter of runs as Devine would take a 13-7 lead. The Mustangs came out in the 2nd quarter with some energy and were able to cut the deficit to 3 as they went into halftime trailing by a score of 20-17. A big 3 pointer by David Silva in the early minutes of the 3rd quarter tied the game up at 20-20 but the Mustangs couldn’t get a stop on the defensive end. This led to a couple offensive rebounds and an easy score for the Warhorses that sparked a quick 9-0 run to give them a 29-20 lead. The Mustangs struggled to recover from the run and fell to Devine by a score of 39-32. “I was really proud of the effort all game long. Again, we struggled to score and that quick 9-0 run for Devine really put us in a hole with our struggles offensively. I thought we had another great game defensively and it is something that is going to have to continue to move forward if we want to be successful.”
