The Mustangs led the Cougars 21-14 after one, and quadrupled up Lyons-Decatur Northeast 12-3 in the 2nd quarter to take a 33-17 lead into the locker room.

Stanton won the 3rd quarter 12-7 to extend their lead to 45-24 at the end of three.

Two really nice wins for Stanton!

The Mustangs (6-12) take on Wisner-Pilger (8-9) in the first round of the East Husker Conference Tournament at Pender Friday night.

The Gators lost 65-37 at North Bend Central Thursday night.

Wisner-Pilger beat Stanton 45-35 at home on December 20th.

So certainly should be another good game this time around I would think.

It’s the EHC Tournament, and anything can happen.

The Mustangs are playing well and with a lot of momentum right now so I’m curious to see what Stanton can do in this one.

Tip-off is set for 6:00 p.m. in Pender.
