I sincerely apologize for not being able to deliver a live broadcast of our most popular event. The wireless simply would not hold up with all of the other cell phone/I-pad/Smartphone interference in the gym.
HOWEVER, we did broadcast the game via tape delay. It is presently available at the link/icon posted above.
I will try to come up with an alternate solution prior to the district tournament which is at the end of Febraury this spring at the same venue and with the a similar sized crowd.
In order to publish the varsitytape delay sound file, I had to blow away the JV game file. I apologize to all who wished to listen to the replay of the JV game won by Campbell County 40-30.
Congratulations to Justin Saunders, our newest member of the Brossart/St. Mary 1,000 Point Club, where he now stands 15th all-time with 1,009 points. He was incredible tonight in scoring 30 points and was a man on a mission.
Congratulations also to our Mustangs who got the two ton gorilla off of our backs with the impressive 73-56 win.
| The Brossart Mustangs earned some redemption and got the two-ton gorilla off our backs that have resided there for the past four encounters with the Campbell County Camels, victors over our Mustangs in the last two Crosstowns and 37th District Tournament match-ups. On Saturday night, after falling behind 19-16, the Mustangs unleased an unholy assault on the Camels, resulting in a 11-0 run, that gave our guys the lead for good at 27-19, prior to Trent McGovney scoring the final field-goal of the half, making it 27-21 Mustangs at the half. The Mustangs pushed the lead to 20 points 44-24 at the 3:38 mark of the third quarter and were content to lead 53-38
coming out of the third quarter, a period that saw Mustang Senior Justin
Saunders score the 1,000th Point of his career . Campbell attempted to
rally early on in the fourth quarter and again with 4:58 to play in the game
when they cut the Mustang lead to 11 at 57-46 and then at 59-48, but that
was as close as the Camels would come on this night, as we hit our
free-throws and witnessed a monster jam by Alex Trentman to put an
exclamation point on this win.
On the night the Mustangs were led by Justin Saunders who scored 30
points, running his career total to 1009 and moving him past Rodney
Sendelbach (1,000) on the 1,000 point club. Drew Burns, who continues
to get better and better each time out recorded 14, while Alex Trentman
contributed 13 to the winning effort. The Mustangs had 13 steals for the
contest reflective of the efforts of Ben Uebel, Jake Jennings and company,
and turned the Camels over repeatedly as a result of tenatious defense.
Blue-Chipper Corey Holbrook led the Camels with 16 points, while
Sophomore Deondre Jackson put in 13 points, all in the second half.
Nate McGovney scored 5 points in his first outing since re-injuring his
knee on December 1st against Louisville Butler. The Camel youth corps
of Freshmen Trent McGovney and Matt Wilson combined for 11 points and give the Camels hope for the future.
The Camels claimed the JV game for their own, avoiding the Brossart broom, by a score of 30-20. No player from either team reached double-figures. The score was knotted at eights at the end of one period, but the Camels took the advantage 15-12 at intermission. Following a 14-9 Campbell County 3rd period, the Mustangs fell behind by 8 at 29-21 which would lead to their demise by a final score of 30-20. Jon Zink put up 9 for the Mustangs, while Campbell County was led by Trent McGovney with 9 points. Our Mustang JVs fall to 7-2 on the season.
The Brossart freshmen captured the lid-lifter 37-31 in a game where Joey Hickman led the Stangs with 10 points, and David Kelley knocked down 6 of 6 key free-throws late in the game. I do not have a copy of the scoresheets so therefore cannot elaborate. I'll make a copy tomorrow and post the box score in the Game Reports section asap.
| Our condolences to the Rieger family on the sudden passing of Carol's brother Steve, who died of a massive heart attack Friday evening at the age of 47. Steve lived in St. Louis with his wife, but would visit Northern Kentucky on occasion to visit with his family and take in Jacob or Eriks games. I remeber Steve as a young Red Devil football player where he earned the nickname "Tiger" from his Midgets coaching staff.
