Score:
MUSTANGS: 50

The Mustangs defeated Freedom-South Riding 50-37 Thursday night to garner third place honors in the Joe Cascio Holiday Tournament at Falls Church High School.  Nate Ogle scored a season-high 20 points and snagged 13 boards for Mason, and Philippe Griffiths added 16 and 8 caroms. 

 

The Mustangs (7-3) led comfortably for many stretches of the game, but the Eagles would not go away.  With the Stangs up only 4 entering the final period, Ogle went to work on the low block, scoring 7 straight points in the quarter to push the lead back to a comfortable margin. 

 

GM resumes Bull Run District play Tuesday January 3 at much-improved Strasburg, who at 6-3, 2-1 in the league is tied with GM, Madison County and Clarke County in a second place logjam.  All four teams are chasing William Monroe at 3-0 in the district.  Game time is 7:45.
