Close game brings boys home with a loss

by Ryan Kohlhof

On the road, the PCM Mustang boys’ basketball team faced a tough loss. Roland-Story came up on top in the Friday night showdown,  69-60. PCM’s boys started slow losing the first two quarters, but started to come back in the third quarter, and holding the line in the fourth.
“The biggest thing for us right now is to not get down on ourselves. Keeping a positive attitude and focusing on improving are probably the two most important things.” coach Fred Lorensen said.
The Mustangs were led by junior Logan Gilman in points, scoring 14 on the night, followed by seniors Luke Pendroy and Trey Lindsay, scoring 11 and 10 points, respectively.
“It’s still really early in the season, so we just need to focus on getting better.” Lorensen said. “We shot the ball very poorly against R-S, so that is one area that certainly needs to be addressed.We also need to execute and communicate better defensively. We are not very big, so we need to continue to work on boxing out.”
The boys’ next game is tomorrow, Dec 12, vs Collins-Maxwell-Baxter at Baxter.
