Mustangs shake off rust to defeat Hawks in Mustang Mania
The Princess Margaret Mustangs senior girls basketball team shook off some rust Friday as they cruised past the J.L. Crowe Hawks from Trail, 67-26.
The matchup kicked off the Mustang Mania tournament, which was also the first time the Mustangs played a game in their own barn.
After ending the first half with a 27-17 lead, Mustangs coach Dave Killick said it was nice to score and get on a roll. In the third quarter, the Mustangs outscored the Hawks 18-4, and 22-5 in the final quarter.
"We executed better in the second half and just settled down," said Killick, who admitted it was a bit strange to play at home for the first time. "I think everyone got to play. Defensively we played well. We tweaked our offence a little bit."
Killick praised the efforts of Madison Winter defensively. Offensively, the scoring was spread out, but Killick said that Callan Cooper and Megan Admussen-Blair played well to generate scoring. He also liked the performance of Danielle Ruocco in the open court.
