Boys and Girls Defeat Stanton Mustangs

On Thursday, February 7, the Patriot basketball teams traveled to Stanton for their last game of the week before Girls’ Sub-Districts the next week. As the last game of the regular season for the girls, the Patriots brought home the win.


To start the night off, the JV girl kicked off the night with a win against the Mustangs. 39-30 was the final score.


Junior Abbi Brabec, “It was great way to end the JV season on a win.”


At the same time, boys’ JV played and lost to the Mustangs by a mere 2 points. The ending score was 28-30.


Freshman Logan Schroeder led the team with 12 points, and sophomore, Trevor Zulkoski led the team with 9 rebounds.


Freshman Zane Williams said, “We started out slow at first, but throughout the game we kept creeping up on them. The last quarter was our best, but if we would have played like that the entire game, we would have won.”


Following the JV games, it was varsity’s turn to have a very successful night.


Girls’ Varsity started off the night kind of slow. They were down 11-15 in the first half with zero points in the first quarter, and 11 in the second. The Mustangs started to pull away, but they just couldn’t quite hang with the Patriots.


The game was neck and neck. The Patriots finally ended the suspense by pulling ahead just enough to hold the Mustangs. The final score resulted in a Patriot win, 31-27.


Senior Hannah Kasik led the team with 12 points, and junior Ashlynn Novotny had 6 rebounds.


Head Coach Matt Murren said, "The girls grinded out a gutty victory to close out the regular season. It was a great to win on the road against a rival. It was a great way to head into sub-district week."


Sophomore Cassidy Hoffman said, “We came out slow and lethargic. We couldn't get anything going to start, but then we picked up the pace. We finally started to gain momentum and got things going. We finished the game out strong and came out with a win, and it was a great way to end the season.”


They ended the regular season with a 19-3 record.

Following the girl’s game, the boys had their time to shine. As the boys followed in the girls’ footsteps, this was another suspenseful game. Patriots were down by 5 going into halftime with 15-20.


The boys picked up the pace as they kept answering the Mustangs shots with the same or even more points. As both teams were getting tired, the Patriots kept grinding away. The Patriot’s defense held Stanton to only 13 points in the fourth quarter.


As a result of scoring 25 points in the fourth quarter, the boys took home the win with an ending score of 55-48.


Freshman Logan Schroeder said, “We came out slow offensively but were only down five in the first half. Second half we came out strong on both ends of the court and came out with the win. They left me open twice and gave me the opportunity to sink 2 threes helping boost the team’s energy”


Head Coach Jeff Bachman said, “I was really proud of the fight we showed against Stanton. We got contributions from a lot of guys and battled for a fun win on the road. I am really proud to see this team continue to grow.”


The boys’ season record following this win is 7-12.
