Really good play from Stanton I thought. Very impressive.
The Mustangs (4-7) host Boone Central (2-4) and Norfolk Catholic (6-2) in a Triangular Thursday night.
The Cardinals went 1-2 at their own Invite on Saturday, beating Central City 2-0, but losing 2-0 to Tekamah-Herman and 2-1 to Oakland-Craig while the Knights swept Battle Creek and Summerland 2-0 at their Home Triangular Thursday night.
I look for Stanton to beat Boone Central and give Norfolk Catholic all they can handle and then some.
It should be a heck of a night for the Mustangs if Monday was any indication of what’s to come.
I was really impressed with Stanton’s play on Monday, and look for them to carry that over into Thursday.
The Mustangs are a team that is improving each night, and figure to be a force to be reckoned with the rest of this season.
I feel like Stanton is finally starting to find themselves and an identity at that.
The Mustangs are playing together as a team and executing well, and I think those are two big reasons for Stanton’s improvement, play, and surge as of late.
The Mustangs have to continue their hot play as of late and must stay consistent.
Stanton has to keep trending upward and can’t afford to take any steps back.
