Freshmen Nosed 55-52 In Game of Major Momentum Swings
JVs Overwhelmed By Bluebird Twos
   While we have won our share of games in the Russell Bridges Gymnasium during the Mike Code era,
nothing has come easy for us in that venue.  Early on it appeared that the Mustangs would finally win one
in stress-less fashion, leading by as much as 21-9, slicing and dicing the Bluebird defense and led by ten
at the quarter break.
   However, a funny thing happened between the first and second stanza, as momentum shifted to the
Bluebirds and the Mustangs would struggle to regain their first quarter swagger for the rest of the
game.  Highlands took over, winning period two and three by 13-8 and 11-9 scores.
  Despite losing the previous two periods, the Mustangs continued to cling to a 38-35 lead with 8 minutes
to play.
   Bad went to worse when the Mustangs failed to add to the sum on the visitors side of the scoreboard
for the first five minutes of the final period.  During that span the Bluebirds wrestled the lead away from
our Mustangs and built a 45-38 bulge when Zach Hamberg got the lid off with his first of two 3-pointers
that drew the Mustangs closer at 45-41.  The Birds' Alex Starkey then took an ill-advised three-point shot -
and hit it, allowing the Birds to regain the seven point edge at 48-41.  To our credit we battled back to
score another Hamberg home run, a pair of Duffy free-throws, and a timely Ethan Eilerman follow-up to a
Duffy miss, which drew us to within 49-48 with 27.2 to play in the game.  The Mustangs came away with
the ball with 9 seconds to play.  Duffy made a desperation effort to score, came up empty, and the
Mustangs were forced to foul with .9 seconds remaining and the Birds prevailed 50-48 to win their fourth
straight .  
  We will break for Senior Retreat and re-appear in the Swauger Classic at 5pm Thursday vs Ryle.

  
In what could be described as an exciting battle of major momentum swings Highlands had the first one
against our Freshmen Mustangs blitzing them 12-0 to start the game.  The Mustangs cut it to three by
halftime and took the lead at 31-30 early in the third quarter, before momentum shifted again to the Birds,
who laid a 16-0 on our guys.  The Mustang freshmen battled back to within a single possession and had
the ball in the air that could have sent it to overtime.  The Final Score was Highlands 55-Brossart 52.
  I do not have the box score and will have to obtain it to relay how the scoring broke down, and will post
that as soon as I receive it.
  The Freshmen return to action on Thursday night at 7:30pm at home when we host the Cooper Jaguars.

  
Our JVs were overwhelmed by the Bluebirds.  We will get another whack at them on Tuesday, December
26th at 3pm in Fort Thomas.  Again, I was busy working with Coach Shields on Book Sales and signing,
and do not have a copy of the box scores.  They will be posted when available to me.
