The Mustangs started slow, sped up, slowed to a crawl and came roaring back just a little too late. After a slow beginning, FC hit some shots and led 10-9 after 1. The team could only find the bottom of the net one time in the 2nd and fell behind 12-20 by the half. As has been the case several times this season, the c team had a hole to dig out of heading into the last quarter. Down 17-29, it seemed a long shot for the Mustangs to pull out a win. Nevertheless, with less than a minute to go, they had cut the lead to 4 with a chance at two free throws to make it a two point game. The free throws didn’t fall and they were forced to foul, ending the game down 6. Big threes from Gabe Coffenberry and Michael Geller late in the 4th alongside a couple shots close to the rim from Gabe and Seth Martin added up to a 10-point run in a matter of just a few minutes. Gabe Coffenberry led all scorers with 10, Seth Martin had 6, Michael Geller and Imanol Barradas each added 5 and Miguel Rosado chipped in a free throw. The C team plays at FC on Thursday against North Vermillion.
