COVID-19 has really taken a toll on sports this week by stalling the CCMS Mustangs’ run for a basketball championship, but they are still doing what damage they can in the world of sports. It has also put a damper on CCHS wrestling with having to move dates and cancel matches. However, the Mustangs got to get their game on before it all came to a halt this past week with games against Braxton and Calhoun.
The Mustangs needed to win in a big way due to a slow start on the season, and they didn’t disappoint. First up was Braxton, and the boys came out smoking the net and never stopped until the game was over. Trent Gibson was top shot with 13 points in the game followed closely by Mason Sears. The final score was Mustangs 53, Braxton 21.
Next up was Calhoun, and the Red Devils may as well have not wasted the fuel and just sent a white flag in the mail. Noah Collins had one of those college moments and racked up 20 points in the game to lead the Mustangs in scoring. Not too far behind was Ayden Brown with 11. When the clock stopped, it was the Mustangs over Calhoun by the score of 50-26.
Wednesday’s game was also 8th grade night with five Mustangs taking their game to CCHS to help continue the success of the Panther team. I am not sure at this point what the future is for either the Lady Mustangs or the Mustangs basketball teams with the tournament play supposed to be starting this week. Only time will tell whether COVID-19 gives out a free pass to play or shuts the season down. Go Mustangs and Lady Mustangs!
