Pirates sink Bronco girls’ ship
By Kyle Salomon
Despite senior center Brooke Irwin scoring a game-high 21 points and grabbing 11 rebounds, Mustang dropped a 64-50 decision to Putnam City Feb. 11.
With the win over the Bronco ladies, Putnam City completed the season sweep of Mustang.
Sophomore guard Addyson Lawson had 13 points and three rebounds, and senior forward Laci Joyner finished with five points and five rebounds.
“I thought we played a pretty decent first and third periods,” Mustang head coach Kevin Korstjens said. “In the second and fourth it was a different story. I thought we let them dictate how the game was played a little bit.”
Mustang trailed the Lady Pirates by three points at halftime, but Putnam City outscored the Broncos 34-23 in the second half.
Mustang finished the game with 30 rebounds, forced the Pirates into 14 turnovers, committed 18 turnovers, and made 18 out of 25 free throws.
