Mustangs drop ball into North Polk’s hands

by Rory Van Gorp

On Jan. 30, the PCM varsity girls’ basketball team took the court against North Polk to search for an end to their three-game losing streak; however, they were unable to find it 68-38.

The game was off to a rough start due to losing control of the ball while dribbling and missing shots. However, the Mustangs were able to come up with a solid 15 points at the end of the first quarter, just shy of North Polk’s 17.

The second quarter wasn’t much better. The Mustangs were only able to 11 points, while North Polk bounded ahead ending the first half at 36-26, North Polk’s lead.

The third quarter was the start of a long second half, with North Polk dominating scoring 14 points over PCM.

The fourth quarter was barely better, with PCM only putting up eight points and North Polk 14. In the end, North Polk won the night nearly doubling PCM’s score, 68-38.

The game was less than ideal for fans and the team alike. PCM junior Camryn Wignall said, “I think our defense kind of lacked that game. We didn’t have much help side and we allowed a lot of drives. We needed to be more patient on offense and not run down and chuck up shots.”

The girls have a good idea what they need to work on as they approach travel to South Tama for varsity regionals this Saturday, Feb. 10.

Wignall said, “We need to improve moving on defense and work on passing into the post. They work so hard down there and we need to look to get them the ball.”
