With their season winding down, the Natalia Mustangs have just two games left. This Friday they will play Jourdanton and then finish their season in Poteet. Currently 1-11, there is no chance for play-offs this year. But with several varsity players coming back next season, they will build upon what they learned this season.
Falling 42-48 to West Campus, the Mustangs led both teams in free-throws, points off turnovers, and points in the paint. But West led in many other stat columns for the win. It was a close game with Natalia trailing by just one at the half. West picked up their offense in the second half and the Mustangs could not keep up.
Stats: Jaieden Burford 18 points, 5 rebounds, 3 assists, 2 steals. Paul Zapata 2 points, 3 rebounds, 1 steal. Elias DeLuna 3 points. David Rodriguez 5 points, 1 rebound. Joshua San Miguel 6 points, 7 rebounds, 1 assist, 5 steals. Matthew Martin 2 points, 3 rebounds, 1 steal. Manuel Garcia 6 points, 7 rebounds, 4 steals. Q1 9-10, Q2 21-22, Q3 25-34, Q4 42-48. FTP 56%.
