Comments from Mustangs coach Dick Jungers…
“We got off to a slow start and were down 6-0 nothing out of the gate. We turned the ball over and gave them a few transition opportunities to start the game, once we settled in we were able to get good looks from the outside and we finished on the inside. This was a great way to go into the break.”
The Newell Fonda girls are now 9-1 on the season.
